    Win 8 (dutch DVD) update -> Win 8.1 NL-> Win 10 1511 (NL/UK) upgrade?


    Hi members,

    I bought a Windows 8 Pro x64 NL DVD and installed it. Updated to Win 8.1 Pro x64 NL and changed language and keyboard setting to English (US) for better use of my Windows system in flightsims (no translation needed on forums):

    1. do I need the (dutch) or (english) Windows 10 Pro x64 .ISO to update (no clean install) my Windows system?

    2. Do I need to set language / date&time / region / location to the original dutch install of Windows 8.1 or do I use the current control panel settings?

    2. I have ESET (based on the older NOD32) Smart Security v8.0.312.4 running, as I've read that it is wise to un-install it, don't I put my system at risk during the install? Can I install the upgrade without an internet connection?

    TIA for the guidance and help!

    Cheers

    You need the Dutch language install media to upgrade. Only regional versions of the same main language can be used for upgrade, for instance an UK English Windows 10 can be upgraded with a new build of Windows 10 using an US English install media but even in that case the user can only keep the settings and personal files, not the installed software.

    No. Using myself as an example, I always use Finnish input language in English Windows with location and regional formats set to UK although using the PC in Germany. Windows upgrade does not care about your regional settings. The installed core language is the key factor, everything else irrelevant.

    No, you do not put your system at risk. Microsoft's own Windows Defender and Windows Firewall can be on with real-time scanning when upgrading, but it is recommended you turn the third party AV products and firewalls off when upgrading. You can turn them on again when the upgrade is done.
