Windows 10: Win 10 Install Plan RFC
Win 10 Install Plan RFC
Please comment on the following plan.
I intend to
a. Buy a new 1 TB HD and install Win7 Home Premium on it.
b. Set a Restore point on my existing Win7 HD
c. Hold in reserve my original Win 7 HD
d. Boot the new intsall and wait for Win 7 to ask if I want to Install Win 10
e. Do the Win 10 install and see if I like it.
f. If I do then I'll copy data content across from 7 to 10.
I agree with all except step e. No need to wait. Download the ISO from Techbench or use Media Creation Tool to do the upgrade, create a USB flash drive or burn a DVD.
See Brink's tutorial here: Windows 10 - Upgrade Installation or here: Windows 10 - Clean Install
There's no need to install Windows 7 first either, if srfpala has the Windows 7 product key. Windows 10 downloaded from Tech Bench or with Media Creation Tool will activate with a Windows 7 product key.
1. Make a Windows 10 USB/DVD by downloading ISO from Tech Bench or with Media Creation Tool.
2. Remove old Windows 7 hard drive, install new 1 TB hard drive.
3. Boot from Windows 10 USB/DVD and install Windows 10 on new 1 TB hard drive. Click on "I don't have a product key", "skip", or "do this later" when asked for a product key.
4. After installation go to the activation screen under updates & security from setting, change product key, enter Windows 7 product key to activate.
Forgot about that, thanks.
