Windows 10 – Something Happend – invalid SQM session

When installing and trying to update to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 you may come across the “Something Happened” error which is of  of no use what so ever.

Windows 10 something happenend

This error is normally down to the language and locale set in your current Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 installation. We need to change these settings to to English United states manually. To do so do the following:

  1. Browse to control panel.
  2. Select Region.
  3. Select Administrative.
  4. Select Change locale.
  5. Change to English US

Windows 10 change locale

Then again begin the upgrade to Windows 10 and you will find the installation is successful this time.
