    I think this is unlikely since Windows should detect the newer hardware and decide compatibility upon that. Any older driver is ignored if the hardware is not present, but you never know. If indeed has the GT 630 driver installed and gets an error when trying to upgrade, he should use DDU to uninstall any traces of the old driver. Then do the upgrade and finally install newest nVidia driver directly from nVidia (not Windows Update).
    That's all I was trying to explain to this user......and IF a user does not un-install their graphic card drivers correctly, this could confuse windows when it was checking his computer. :)

    Of course, he can always download the ISO and do the upgrade which should ignore any drivers and let him go.
