    When using a windows 10 install from a dvd, is the install program going to give me the choice of which partition and/or disk to install it to?

    The main reason that prevents you to install Win 10 is that you have low free disk space.
    There are steps to free around 10G
    - Disable Virtual memory on the C: drive and enable on the D: drive
    - Disable hibernation. Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    powercfg -H off
    - use CCleaner to clean all unnecessary files.
    - Go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete all files and folders (it has the updates that has been downloaded and installed. They are useless.

    Good news.....Windows 10 Pro is now installed and activated with license from my account. I did a reboot to make sure it starts ok and it does. It is on the C drive and all my stuff is still secure on the D drive.

    It is making me sign in with a PIN at boot, is there a way to disable that? My laptop is setup as Administrator and I just click to sign in. On this one I did not see an option during the install to skip the PIN part. I'm the only one that uses it.

    I had 32gb free the last time I was able to get into it and attempt the upgrade, and it did not work.

    Well it was a clean install. I had to give up on the upgrade. There was no cause that stood out as making the upgrade rollback. For some reason I found that my install DVD would not boot even though I had previously tested it. So I went into command prompt, checked DISKPART to see what the drive letters were - the contents of the DVD did show up. So I just ran the setup.exe file from inside the cmd. I suppose I could have tried checking the option to save my files and see if it would do the upgrade that way, but I just selected to not save anything and it worked.

    Everything from my win7 C drive is now in a windows.old file of 80gb, leaving me almost no space, so I'm moving that to the D drive for a few days until I'm sure I don't need anything from it. I've got that, plus the disk image, so I'm confident that I haven't lost anything.

    Excuse me Brucex64, but to launch setup.exe from running windows is the way to do the upgrade. The windows.old (80G) has your Win 7 on it.

    As you have a clean install, why don't you move C:\Users to the HDD? I also have a 120 G SSD with Windows and programs and have moved C:\Users (SSD) to the D:\Users (HDD). I have the speed of a SSD and the space of a HDD at low cost.

    Moving \Users to the HDD has some advantages
    - The SSD is used only to store Windows and programs.
    - All the user data files and also temp files, downloads etc are on the HDD.
    - You can do a clean install on the SSD and all your data will stay on the HDD

    Attached is Relocate users (Kari tutorial)
    As I moved C:\Users in Desktops and Laptops I can guide you.
