Upgrading a Windows 7 or 8 Machine to Windows 10
Are you a Windows 7 or 8 user who has been considering the free upgrade to Windows 10? In this video, we’ll take you through the process of automatically upgrading a machine. If you were worried about the upgrade or concerned you might not know what to do, this tutorial should hopefully put your mind at rest.
Note that the upgrade process can in some instances fail. Usually this just results in you being returned to your old operating system but in a very small number of cases it has resulted in a PC that will not start. Use Macrium Relfect or a similar disc imaging tool to completely back up your PC or make sure you have a contingency plan just in case.
