    Yes, but you asked me "how did you upgrade your consumer version to Windows 10?", so I told you. I know it won't work for enterprise, but that's how I did my upgrades. What else can I say.

    Just to be clear again...
    So the upgrade option when I boot using the Windows 10 Enterprise ISO works like windows update ?
    I mean like, it would just update my operating system files and leave everything else untouched (e.g. my files will not be deleted or something) ?

    If I were you I would do an image backup before doing the upgrade. Your files "SHOULD" be okay but Mr. Murphy delights in striking when he can do the most damage in the least amount of time.

    I can't say for sure? Like I said, I've never upgraded Enterprise to Enterprise. For the consumer version, yes, you get a page with a check box for "keep my files and programs.". Your options are, keep nothing, keep files, keep files and programs. You decide. You should be able to bail out if you don't like what you see.

    I have been wondering why I didn't receive the free upgrade notification and I read in Microsoft forums that Enterprise versions of Windows are excluded in the free upgrade.

    Is it possible to upgrade my Windows 8.1 Enterprise to Windows 10 using the Windows 10 Multiple Edition Installer from MSDN? Am I gonna lose my files if upgrade is possible?

    Or is it that...I have no other option but to do a clean install of Windows 10?
    Enterprise editions are from volume licensing. You need to get it through whoever provided your copy since they will have the volume licensing credentials.

    ► UPDATE to my query


    I now have the Windows 10 Enterprise ISO installer on my thumb drive.
    I also have the license key from the company.

    By selecting the 1st option, this installation of Windows 10 will just be something like a Windows update?

    Could you share how/ where / link you downloaded the Enterprise ISO? MSDN link? Please do share as I cant seem to find it on the site filters.

    Thank you for that. I'm downloading the Windows 10 Enterprise ISO from MSDN right now.

    From your experience, how did you upgrade your consumer version to Windows 10?
    Should I just run the setup.exe while in windows or I should create a DVD/Flash Drive installer then boot to that then there will be an "upgrade" option?

    Just to be clear with the upgrade, is it comparable to running windows update?

    You can't download from MSDN unless you have a subscription. There is an Enterprise trial though, https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/eval...-10-enterprise its good for 90 days use.
