    Hi there

    For Centos 7 / 7.1 (I haven't used Centos 6 / 6.5 for ages - so if you have that release you'll have to google further !!).

    If you have the latest kernel - download the kernel headers, gcc, kernel-devel, dkms and ensure you have EPEL rel 7 added to your repos.

    Then simply download latest VMware workstation / VMware player bundle from VMware site (if you are using VMware) and as root run the bundle.

    It should compile fine, Then start VMware as a user and point to your VM config file.

    From INSIDE the vm simply upgrade to W10 via Windows update -- you'll need your W7 key to activate the new W10 system..

    I'm using latest Centos 7.0 / 7.1 works brilliantly.

    Same procedure I'd imagine for VBOX users.

    Incidentally -- if you are using CENTOS with a GUI (GNOME, KDE etc) add the nux dextop to your epel list and install YUMEX -- this is a gui front end for Yum and when downloading say an rpm file it will install automatically (prompt for root password).

    Don't forget also to add ntfs-3g if you want to read and write NTFS files.

    CENTOS 7 -- to add EPEL repo : sudo yum install epel-release

    to add nux dextop (contains Multi-media - VLC etc plus other goodies like YUMEX. Run as root or SUDO.
    (If you have KDE desktop you can run a load of stuff from within the "File explorer" - Dolphin on KDE -- as a non root user type from a console KDESU DOLPHIN, enter root password and you've got the file explorer with root privileges).

    rpm -Uvh http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop...nux.noarch.rpm
    rpm --import http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/RPM-GPG-KEY-nux.ro

    Enjoy. !!!

    Cheers

    You might want to uninstall VMware tools in the guest, upgrade and then re-install them.

    Upgrading the guest to Windows 10 version 1511 might prevent VMware Tools related features from working (2139517)

    Hi there
    Thanks for that tip -- Until I did that I couldn't get any SOUND working in the Guest - not that for me is sound particularly important on the Guest - it works fine on the Host. However I do like to have a 100% working machine whether it's a VM or a physical machine.

    Uninstall VMWARE tools on the guest and re-installed worked just fine (although until the vmware video adapter was re-installed - a 640 X 480 display on a huge monitor looked a bit odd !!!!) --- Depending on your video you might find it easier to uninstall vmware tools on the NEW guest rather than from the old OS (W7) first . Do whatever works best.

    Cheers
