New Fusion 8.02 Upgrade Great / Win 10 upgrade install fails

Jump to solution

Hello,

27" Mac early 2012 OSX 10.11.0 and recently upgraded to Fusion 8.02 and tried to upgrade Win 8 to Win 10 and the upgrade fails with a message that reads:

"Compatibility Issue:

This PC can't run Windows 10 here's why: VMware SVGA 3D

The display manufacture hasn't made your display compatible with Windows 10.  Check with manufacture for support".

I unchecked the Accelerated 3D graphics selection in the Fusion display settings, shut down VM, restarted and tried the Win 10 upgrade again but still get the same failure message.  I thought I read about Fusion 8 was ready for Win 10 but I could be wrong.  Has anyone else had this situation ? or any suggestions for what I need to do to correct the Win 10 upgrade failure.

Thanks in advance for any corrective advice.

Yes, thank you. Was just getting ready to post the correction that I found on the web. It was a posting by Michael Roy also.  I have corrected the upgrade failure from his article.  The one you posted is great also and with more illustrations.
