Microsoft home and student 2010 with windows 8


  • I have purchased a 2010 Microsoft office home and student and had it installed on my previous laptop. I purchased a new computer and am trying to install it on my new laptop using the provided disk and key. I get to the installation progress screen the bar fills up all the way but that is as far as it ever goes and doesn't complete the install? help

  • Hi Chris,

    How is everything going on now?

    Try the following quick fix first:

    Restart your computer, run a repair install from the install source


    If that doesn't work, try remove the current installed Office suites. Check the methods available in the following support article:

    Also follow the "Remove Microsoft Office 2010 suites manually" section to manually check if everything have been removed.

    After that, configure your computer to start in clean boot mode and run setup again. See how to perform a clean boot:
