    Installing Windows 10 through ISO file in Windows 7


    Hello,

    I am currently using Windows 7 Ultimate and I've a few questions to ask, so please try to answer-

    1. I've saved the ISO of Windows 10 in cloud storage which I did web upload when Microsoft made these available. So, will it also work for the upgrade?

    2. I've not updated it to Service Pack 1, so it won't work? Also, as I've not update it yet so my PC is eligible for the upgrade even after 29th July?

    3. I've unstable Internet Connection, so the Internet may disconnection while-in the progress of download. So, is Media Creation Tool will be good or bad because I can't see any pause option in it, so I'm afraid that it may not contain Resume option too. So, should I use the method to download ISO file directly?

    4. After installing Windows 7 SP1, there could be many updates there which will totally eat lots of data. So, can you tell me the only needed update names.

    Please try to answer all the questions, thank you!

    Hello Akash,

    As long as you do an upgrade install to the free Windows 10 from your activated 7, it doesn't matter which upgrade installation path you use.

    Can I reinstall Windows 10 on my computer after upgrading with free upgrade?

    Once you’ve upgraded to Windows 10 using the free upgrade offer or Media Creation Tool on an activated Windows 7 or 8.1 PC, you will be able to reinstall, including a clean install, on the same device. You won’t need a product key for re-activations on the same hardware. If you make a meaningful change to your hardware, you may need to contact customer support to help with activation. You’ll also be able to create your own installation media like a USB drive or DVD, and use that to upgrade your device or reinstall after you’ve upgraded.

    Thank you Brink for your reply!

    I tried the Media Creation Tool to download it but I cancelled it. However, due to this- new problem has raised.

    Actually, even after I cancelled it I found that svchost.exe is continuously taking data, even after several restarts. And when I again open the Media Creation Tool, SetupHost.exe also start taking data.

    I fixed this by deleting a few files, however, the same thing again happen when I open MediaCreationTool.exe

    You can see it in detail here- Media Creation Tool not working; continuosly data used by svchost.exe - Windows 10 Forums

    In that case, you could try upgrading to Windows 10 using the ISO file you created from Media Creation Tool to see how it goes.

    I don't have ISO file. I had stored the Windows 10 English 32-bit ISO file in a cloud storage website, when Microsoft had made it available. I haven't downloaded it yet because even it doesn't support any download manager.

    You could download it from another computer if you like to use on your PC.

    Yeah but can you try to tell me why do svchost.exe take too much data? SetupHosts.exe also start taking data but even it doesn't show any dialog that I could understand that it is actually downloading or not.

    I'm thinking to do a restore everything. Maybe it will solve with it. However, still can you tell me whether that ISO file will work for me or not in case I download that?

    I had saved the ISO file in UDisk (of UC Browser) and the size of the file is around 2.8 GB.
