    7 Pro 64Bit

    Question before upgrading

    On a spare hard drive I have, I Installed 7 Pro 64Bit w/SP1. How, if possible, do I upgrade to 10 w/o having to download all the Telemetry KB updates?

    What are Telemetry KB updates?

    OK...maybe I figured it out. Are you talking about this?

    Remove telemetry updates for Windows 7 and 8.1 · GitHub

    Since you don't have all the updates to Windows 7, you don't have the Get Windows 10 icon on the taskbar?

    If I understand your question, then the answer is here:

    I downloaded both the Windows Media Creator Tool & image file, made a bootable USB drive, clean installed 10 & have it Activated.
    I'll play w/it from time to time to get used to it, but not daily & not while connected online.
    As I've said before, it's on a spare HDD.
