    Install Win 10 as an update over 8.1?

    Just curious if their are any brave souls who actually updated 8.1 to 10? And if you did, what where your experiences like? No dual-boots, no drive swapping, no VM's or VHD's, a real live update.

    I've done it and I didn't have any issues.

    Just make sure you have imaged your C: drive "just in case"! Nice to have an escape route!

    For sure! I already had to restore 8.1 twice while attempting to get it and 10 to dual boot. Thanks for the tip!
