    And for step #9, it says to uncheck "Download updates, drivers, and optional features (recommended)". Is this the best approach?

    What if there are some driver updates that might make the installation more successful?

    This is better for a repair, which is not what you are doing.

    Yes, the tutorial was concentrating on using an in-place upgrade to repair a system. But it's the best step-by-step description of the in-place upgrade process that I know of.

    You can check for updates during the upgrade, or wait to check using Windows Update after the upgrade has completed, the end result will be the same.

    Occasionally an upgrade can have problems, even when not doing a repair install. Not checking for updates during the upgrade can alleviate some of those 'problematic' upgrades.
