    How to upgrade customized win-7 to win-10


    I have a laptop with multiple partitions running 64-bit Win-7 Pro. While doing a fresh install, I followed Kari's tutorials and set up User Profile on another partition.

    Based on the above, I was wondering what is the recommended approach to upgrade to Win-10.
    Would upgrade to Win-10 from windows updates recognize that User Profiles are in a different partition? If it does then that would be very helpful as I can - take a fresh image of C:\ with Win-7 just in case, upgrade to Win-10 and then make another image of C:\.

    Any thoughts\suggestions\recommendations?

    Thank you for your assistance.
