    Upgrading from Windows 7 Prof.


    Hello All:

    I am running Windows 7 Prof. x64 OEM on my HP Elitebook notebook.

    Do I upgrade to Windows 10 using the integrated upgrade tool (2GB) or do I download the upgrade from Techbench which is 3GB.

    What is the difference between the 2.

    Thanks & Regards

    Hello and welcome to TenForums

    There will be no difference in the end, the integrated tool (Media Creation) uses compressed files so it is smaller, it also detects your version so you are more likely to get the correct one downloaded. Tech Bench relies on you selecting the right version and language edition.
