    W7 ultimate x64 to W10 ?


    HI,

    I tried to upgrade my W7 x64 ultimate to W10 enterprise so I launched the installer through my W7 desktop but only got the "upgrade settings" WITHOUT the W7 installed softwares.

    Is this a localized issue (French W7 to a US W10) or is it that I'm only allowed to upgrade to a home or pro flavor ?

    Hi marcusus. Welcome to the TenForums @marcusus

    There is no ultimate version of W10. My W7 Ultimate upgrade to W10 Pro.

    I currently not aware of the free upgrade status to W10 as it has been about a month since I've done one. Would be interested to here from you if still available.

    Before trying the upgrade I strongly recommend you create a system image so you have a reliable restoration option.

    Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect

    Test the rescue media for any imaging tool you select.

    Here is our tutorial on the upgrade.

    It upgrades to Windows 10 Pro, not Enterprise.

    Windows 7 Ultimate is entitled to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.

    Attempting to upgrade from W7 to a different language of W10 will usually tell you you cannot keep your installed apps.

    You need to upgrade to the same language as your current W7. Download and run the Media Creation Tool to make an install USB in the correct language for your PC. See Option One, Step 6 in this tutorial.

    Alternatively, follow this tutorial.

    I've made an image backup with acronis backup adaptive restore that allowed me to switch from an old desktop to the actual one so the rescue step should be safe.

    I'll try to upgrade to pro version (I'd prefer an enterprise one as it is a full version) so I'll try this step later.

    Thank you for your help !
