Getting the error

We Couldn't install windows 10
0x800707E7 - 0X3000D
The installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with an error during MIGRATE_DATE operation

if you look in C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Panther\setuperr.log

you will see some clues
look for c:\users that dont exists - remove them and also in registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

also it might be a folder that cannot be moved as the update deletes and re-creates user folders

noticed that
[userdir]\AppDataLocal\NPE was showing it cannot be deleted
this gets created on every reboot, so need to stop it
remove everything down from
and the folder

reboot and check its gone

re-run your upgrade
