Default Computer people - Need some help

Was attempting to update my computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10; got the download and was installing however it came up with an error that Windows 10 could not be installed due to "We couldn’t update system reserved partition".

I've done some work with computers, and generally know plenty to get by on my own. Never heard of the SRP, so found out what it was, and that it is an actual issues updating some computers. Seems like some computers with third party software (like AV), the software downloads temporary files to the SRP, and it's a bitch to get off. I attempted both "fixes" that I found online, including the manual way to expand the partition memory...which didn't work. Could be because i'm following the commands wrong, but either way; it's beyond my skill to do.

So what i'm looking at, if I do a factory reset of the computer, delete everything and reinstall it as factory, will that delete the extraneous files in the SRP? So I can then install windows 10 (can still get it from Microsoft for free) I have 2% free in the SRP now, 100MB size, and I need 15MB to install windows 10

What happens if you use a empty flash drive to create a boot media from the microsoft website and then make sure your computer boots from the flash drive instead of the hard drive? You then should be able to install windows 10 over your old OS by selecting the correct option.

I tried doing that with an external hard drive, but it came up with the same error for the SRP
