...failed in the SECOND_BOOT phase w/ an error during SYSPREP_RESPECIALIZE

Recommended Posts

Trying to upgrade from 7 to 10. 
It gets past the download, verify, and install then to the 10 boot process (After a restart) and during updates fails at 85% with the subject error and goes back to 7. I feel if it got to 100% it’d be done. 
I unplugged all external hardware and disabled mcafee. 
Can’t use the SetupDiag program yet. Is there anything to do to point to the problem?

Update: I was able to display SetupDiag.exe logs with notepad and saw a line at point of fail that mentioned aksfridge.sys  so I placed an “X” in the file name so the system couldn’t find it at start up (and I could find it later)

Result: Windows 10 installed. 
Any comments on how this fixed it?

Hi Ickier, thanks for posting your solution.  I just ran into same issue and was wondering where you found the log files?  I am upgrading a Win7 to Win10.  I received the same error as you and as a result it booted back up into Win7.

Also the setupdiag.exe only runs on Win10 from my google searches.
