    Upgrade Win 7 to 10


    I held off as long as possible to change to Win 10.

    The question now, with Win 7 being phased out, is how to do it.

    I may look for new hardware, (PC now is i5-3450 @ 3.10 Ghz, 32 GB memory)


    This is a work machine, no gaming etc.


    1), do I upgrade current machine to Win 10, and then transfer "everything" to new PC with Win 10, or

    2) Transfer from Win 7 machine to Win 10 machine?


    I hate PC changes. Too many software companies that need to allow a re-download of their software, such as Adobe , Quickbooks, etc.


    Any advice?

    :)

    Win 7 and Win 10 on network

    I have home network with separate modem, router, and WAP's. My Windows 7 computer does NOT list the Windows 10 computers on network computer list but the Windows 10 computers network list DO list the Windows 7 computer.

    Turned off firewalls, gave permissions, shared drives. Nothing allows Win 7 computer to access the Win 10 computers.

    Any suggestions for a fix?

    Upgrade Win 7 to 10

    Upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10 Puzzle

    Ok, so here is my problem.

    I currently have my 1.5 TB hdd partitioned in half. The first half is blank, and the second half has Windows 7 installed and activated. Unfortunately, I learned that I cannot combine the 2 partitions back together to diminish the partition split and maximize
    my hdd space like intended because I am only able to increase the first partition or shrink the 2nd.

    So my problem is that I would like to upgrade from my Windows 7 to Windows 10 (which I am fairly confident in how to do it) but I need to use the free upgrade available to me to install Windows 10 to the 1st partition and not the 2nd one.

    I created a USB bootable Windows 10 using the Windows 10 setup tool, but it gives me the following warning:

    • If you are going to install Win 10 on your PC clean for the first time, you'll need a Win 10 product key.
    • If you are going to upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10, you won't need to enter a product key.
    The problem is that I need to sort of do both. I want to upgrade my Windows 7 to Windows 10 but on the 1st partition instead of the 2nd one that currently has Windows 7.

    Does anyone have any helpful suggestions for me?!
