Upgrade directly from Windows 7
Upgrade directly from Windows 8
Upgrade directly from Windows 8.1
Multiple / Some Upgrade, Some Direct
Was Pre-installed on New system
Not upgraded Yet
I also have tried both upgrade from 8.1 and clean install, upgrade worked perfectly and didn't bother to do a clean install
Upgrade from 8.1 to 10 with zero issues. But I expected it because I was/am a member of the insider program from day one.
Poll Upgraded, without issue from Version 1 to 2.0
Forgot to mention I also moved those who had voted "upgraded from 8" and then explained that they actually moved from 8.1 to the correct vote, (that is - everyone )
The poll is also private now as some do not vote in public polls

Thanks for all the comments. Very helpful.
I upgraded from Windows 7 on one of my backup/server machines as a test. I fully expected to get my activation code and then restore the Windows 7 image and leave it like that until I had time to do a clean install of 10.
But the upgrade went so well, with nearly everything set up just as it was in 7, that I have also decided to leave it. I also can't see the benefit to doing all the work to clean install now. But it is good to know that this is a common experience, not a lucky shot!
Now I am more motivated to upgrade my main office machines. I have started preparing this one but have run into a somewhat non-related problem, which I will post in the forum soon.
Upgraded main machine using ISO within windows and all went well. Just done a start menu audit and all programs working great except VMWare player which a reinstall fixed. Other machine clean install due to lack of space (20gb drives) from USB stick.
My self, my Dad and Mum, four people at work have upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and none have any issues
did the upgrade from windows 7 ultimate x64 to windows 10 pro x64 without an issue
