    Can I upgrade to windows 10 from windows 7 ultimate?


    Because i've heard that if you have ultimate you will get pro edition. But it says I need sp1.
    So do I actually need sp1 or I can just upgrade from ultimate to pro?

    Hello R08Y,

    Yes, you can upgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 10 Pro. If you don't have the SP1 update installed in Windows 7 Ultimate, then you just may not be able to keep everything when upgrading to Windows 10. You can verify before starting the actual upgrade at step 15 below, and safely close Windows 10 Setup at this step to cancel the upgrade if wanted.
