Hi there

If you want to do an inplace upgrade of W8 to W10 in a VMware Virtual Machine UNINSTALL VMWARE TOOLS before you do the upgrade and then re-install them afterwards.

Set the ISO image as your CD /DVD drive and simply run the setup from WITHIN the existing Virtual Machine --works fine --on an SSD - 7 Mins !! to complete the whole thing on an 8GB HP Laptop with a standard i5 in it. HOST is running Windows 7 enterprise x-64.

Clone your OLD VM first if you think you want to go back to W8/8.1 again.

This seems to fix some VM freezes especially when shutting down the VM. (WKS10 and 11).
