    But before you do- create a disk image of your Disk 0.... in case things go wrong.

    E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + external disk for image storage. (Option Windows Backup).

    We're not there yet- until the upgrade succeeds.


    Multiboot USB drives- there is a thread about that or a tutorial. I don't know offhand I'm afraid.

    There is a more specific description of how to do this- maybe related to Kyhi's disk (top of Software and Apps).

    Better to update with the image or can I use the update assistant?

    Do create a disk image first. That means running Macrium reflect with an external disk connected, and choosing 'Windows Backup' to create an image you can recover your PC from.

    All regular contributors here use disk imaging routinely as far as I know. So many advantages.

    A few people have problems with major upgrades. Act defensively.

    Your best approach is to create a bootable Win 10 medium, if that's what you're asking.
    If your update failed previously because of issues related to Windows update, this avoids those steps.
    Simpler is better.
    Plus if it doesn't work, you have the bootable medium to try,try,try again.

    At last I updated (I was out of town a few days) but I had to delete the hidden partitions on the second drive.

    Thank you so much for your super support!

    Excellent.. now create a new base disk image, and then keep it updated periodically & before/after major change.

    (I'd hoped hiding the partitions would be adequate for testing that- interesting that they still interfered- but you now have extra space on your disk as intended).
