    You should have backup the whole disk, not individual partitions. If you have backup the whole disk and select to restore the whole disk, Acronis should automatically remove any existing partitions on the disk and then restore these from backup. If you have backup individual partitions, make sure you manually delete the old partitions (with some tool such as Minitool Partition Manager) and then restore the partitions from backup. You may have to create first some empty partitions the same size as the backup ones and tell Acronis to replace each one with the respective partition from the backup. I haven't worked with individual partitions, so I do not know what to do exactly. Google for Acronis instructions to see the available options and how they work.

    If you have an Acronis backup you can use another computer download the trial version of Acronis and then select the option to create a Rescue CD-ROM. Create the Rescue CD-ROM and use it to boot your computer. Obviously you cannot restore the backup on the same disk it is on, so you have to restore it on a different disk or copy it to a different disk to restore it from. You can use a live Windows DVD or USB (see here: Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk) to copy the backup, or just remove the hard disk from your computer and use another computer. Once you have successfully restored the Windows 7 backup, disable any antivirus and other non-critical startup application. Also go to Control Panel, Device Manager and disable any non-critical device, so Windows 10 won't try to find drivers for it and fail. When running Windows 10 setup from within Windows 7, click on Change Windows Update (don't remember exact phrase) and make sure you disable Windows Update during setup. Even better, disconnect from the internet. Then proceed with the upgrade. Once successfully upgrading to Windows 10 and looking at the desktop you can enable any disabled device and startup application.
    but the RECOMMENDED is updates enabled and download prior installing... are you sure disabling updates should work???

    If I go and upgrade to Win 10 Pro [third time - before I failed twice] with this DVD you recommend as Microsoft recommends download updates during upgrade or Not download or being disconnected from the Internet???

    You shouldn't care if it is "recommended". If you disable Update during setup, it will not try to replace a working nVidia driver and it won't fail. After a successful upgrade to v1909 you can visit nVidia's site and manually download and install the latest version for your card. Installing the driver after the upgrade will ensure any generic Microsoft driver is replaced with the latest official nVidia driver improving compatibility and enabling all features of your card (including nVidia Control Panel to tweak performance)

    I do created restore point before try upgrade to Windows 10 [from Windows 7]
    now in Windows 7 Pro failure OS - problematic
    Not shown my restore point - named "just prior Win 10 upgrade" - so revert System files back to this point - what can do???

    - - - Updated - - -

    I think I can diskpart/clean SSD and restore back the backup, or try to FIX the corrupted Win 7 Pro system. After upgrade graphic card drivers and upgrade to windows 10 from DVD.
    well?
    Question: Restore points in Windows 7 - seem after upgrade to windows 10 - from Windows 10 or from failed Win 7 ??? Or maybe destroyed in the process of change OS,...?

    You can use a disk backup or cloning utility to backup your Windows 7 installation, so if you cannot successfully upgrade to 10 you can restore it back. With Acronis Rescue CD-ROM or with Macrium Reflect you can either create a full backup (some backup files on another disk) from which you can restore, or you can clone the whole disk on another disk. Then you can remove the original disk and use the clone to experiment with Windows 10.

    To upgrade the BIOS (if any newer exists), you have to visit the notebook manufacturer's site and type your exact model or S/N to find the correct BIOS. If you try to upgrade with the wrong BIOS (for a different model) you could damage your laptop! As long as you have the latest BIOS version for your model, there should be a utility that you run from Windows and upgrades the BIOS. Make sure you disable the Antivirus and close any running applications and also you have connected the charger before upgrading the BIOS. If the upgrade is interrupted for any reason, you could damage the laptop and never be able to boot again! So upgrade the BIOS only if it is absolutely necessary and with caution.

    To upgrade the graphics card you avoid doing it manually from Device Manager, as this method is not guaranteed to also install the nVidia Control Panel and other nVidia apps. It is best to download the driver and run the setup with right-click Run As Administrator. If the driver is for Windows 7 or Vista, then you have to right-click go to Properties, Compatibility and check the box for Windows 7 or Vista compatibility, so the installer will not complain about Windows version mismatch and will proceed. For most nVidia drivers setting compatibility to Windows 7 or Vista is not necessary (unless the driver too old and refuses to run in Windows 8/10), but running the setup as Administrator is strongly recommended.

    It is not usually required to upgrade the BIOS in order to install Windows 10. You can do that only if you know the newer BIOS will improve compatibility and allow you install Windows 10 while the current BIOS won't let you (BSOD during installation) due to some incompatibility. You can disable Windows Update during installation and update any drivers later. In fact I recommend to do that so you avoid any failure due to setup not being able to install some updates (usually drive updates). It is not necessary to install all Windows 7 updates before upgrading to 10, as most of these will be overwritten anyway. But it is a good idea to update all your drivers so they have greater compatibility with newer Windows versions.

    In general any system with dual core CPU or better and at least 2GB RAM should at least be compatible with Windows 10 32-bit. Any 64-bit CPU newer than the first AMD 64 (that lack certain instructions) should also be compatible with Windows 10 64-bit. The first AMD 64 models cannot run Windows 8/10 64-bit because they lack certain required instructions. Of course it is not worth it to install Windows 64-bit with less than 4GB RAM. For 4GB RAM systems you have to choose between greater compatibility with old hardware (Windows 10 32-bit) and better performance (Windows 10 64-bit). I would chose compatibility over performance. That is as long as there are available drivers for both Windows 32-bit and Windows 64-bit. For older systems usually only 32-bit drivers are available, so I choose to install Windows 10 32-bit in any system up to 4GB RAM.

    You say during upgrade should choose NOT download updates, drivers during installation, WELL if Win 7 Graphics card drivers are already up to date what other drivers to update in my system??
