    Windows 10 Free Update Partition


    Will the free windows 10 update allow me to download windows 10 on another partition?

    I have seen the link below and I don't see any sign of windows 10 asking to download on a partition

    You have to make an installation USB or DVD with the Media Creation Tool. Then you have to boot the computer from the USB or DVD created and under custom install options you can pick which partition to install Windows 10 to. HOWEVER - if you have never upgraded an existing Windows 7/8/8.1 to Windows 10 on that computer, a new install to a new partition will not activate. Installing Windows 10 to a new partition is not an upgrade - it is a new clean install.
