    Will it mess up the week's worth of setting up and debugging problems on IIS to get my web sites running? Or is this upgrade fairly transparent?
    Always make a Macrium Reflect backup when you have concerns like this. Then everything will go smoothly

    Looks like I have 21H1. Are the other numbers important to be matched the same as well?
    2004, 20H2, 21H1 and 21H2 share a common set of system files. The winre.wim contained in the ISO for any of these will be identical, so my method would work too.

    You will not even notice it has been upgraded.
    I like the Repair install as it can repair many things and all you have to do is run setup.exe from running windows.
    Bree solution is also very good.
    Itīs up to you

    Excellent. Well I've ordered five USB thumb drives to arrive Wednesday. Then I'll download and make the install media from the link in this thread and make the bootable upgrade drive.

    I do have both Macrium and Windows Image backups. I've never tried to restore a Macrium backup, but I've been able to restore Windows backups without issue, so I have both just in case.

    Glad to hear it should be seamless.

    If you have an extra unused drive, it's a worthwhile exercise to restore a Macrium Reflect boot drive image to it at see it actually work for yourself and boost your confidence in the product .

    Windows Backup has been deprecated and Microsoft themselves recommend using 3rd party backup software: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...ore-deprecated

    Although is always good to have a Win10 installation USB drive, you donīt need one to do the Repair upgrade.
    With MCT ou can download the Win10 installation iso. Once downloaded, right click on the iso file and select Mount. On the virtual DVD select Setup.exe. In less than 1\2 hour it will be upgraded.

    Okay, so I can run setup.exe off the thumb drive that MCT created. I didn't choose the ISO mode.

    So if I run the Repair Install, it will automatically add the Recovery partition and shrink the C: partition to accommodate? Do I understand that correctly?

    I started the upgrade about an hour ago. It progressed to 81% about 20 minutes ago and has been sitting there since. Is it normal for the upgrade to "stall" at some point?

    It could take a few more hours for the whole process to finish, depending on your PC configuration, etc. So yes, it's very likely normal that it will pause several times like this.
