    10 Pro
    Thread Starter

    trying to gain ifo for options.

    I have Win 10 pro running well and have an image of it.
    I thought I would install 7, upgrade all the BIOS, drivers, etc. then image back to my Win 10.

    It was explained 7 would be wiped so I did not. I have well running Windows 10 from a clean install. I image after each OS is installed and good to go so later on if there is trouble I will have a fresh OS. Although I have images along the way. I always keep the original so it will act like a fresh clean install.

    [If - if, I wanted to go through the work of getting 7's upgraded drivers etc. to 10, I was a bit confused whether I would boot from the Windows 10 dvd or insert the dvd and run setup.exe.]

    I don't mean to cause a stir, I was asking to learn and hope this summarizes my ideas. I have chosen to stay where I am.
    Thank for your help

    Windows 7 Pro x64 Windows 10 Pro x64 Creators Update

    The upgrade advisor should be run first before considering an upgrade to rule out these issues.

W10 Insider Prev upgrade to Win10 full vs of W7/8 upgrade to W10
Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
