    Shawn, any chance you could change the name of this tutorial a wee bit? Make it

    Custom (Parallel) Install Windows 10

    I never think of this as a custom install. To me it's always been a parallel install, alongside the existing install. I always have trouble finding this until I remember to use the Search Tutorials under the Forum tab.

    The end result appears like a reset save files but with a Windows 10 iso.
    Another name could be reset save files equivalent.

    I think it's called Custom because you have two choices when you boot, Upgrade or Custom.

    Hey Rich,

    You may be thinking of the repair install method below instead for a parallel type install since it would use the same version/build as what's currently installed without losing anything.

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    The custom install method would be more for doing a clean install of whatever version/build instead, but have a copy of the old installation in the Windows.old folder unlike if you did a full clean install at boot.

    Yeah, I did used "Custom" since it was the option you would select during the Windows Setup process.

    Yup, that's the one. I don't know why I didn't see that when I searched as it popped up at #3 just now.

    Thanks Shawn.


    No, that requires you to be able to boot into Win 10. I really did mean a Custom Install but without deleting or formatting anything, just doing a parallel install to the C: partition along side the existing partition, which then gets moved into C:\Windows.old.

    The support for Windows 7 ends this month.
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...cle-fact-sheet
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...anuary-14-2020

    There are many threads with Windows 7 upgrade failure troubleshooting.

    Some troubleshooting steps may not fix the failure to upgrade 7 to 10.
    Or some end users may prefer alternatives to troubleshooting.

    Please consider another tutorial or updating this tutorial to include Windows 7 and 8:

    The tutorial has images for each BIOS and UEFI.

    There were no comments on UEFI hybrid (with CSM).

    When a custom install was attempted in UEFI hybrid it failed displaying a yellow triangle with exclamation mark:

    Windows cannot be installed on this disk.
    The selected disk is of the GPT partition style.

    Please consider comments on the need to modify CSM: UEFI hybrid (with CSM) to UEFI native (without CSM)
