    But for what reason you can't, maybe you can clarify a bit.
    I haven't had any problems with Windows 10 in its entire history, I've even used a very old PC for testing purposes (Core 2 Duo from 2006) and the newest ones available. All have been able to be updated without problems always.

    It does it but after it reverts to previous version i dont know the reason.
    Tried with iso/assistant/ and windows update itself.
    I tried last version 22H2 and also 2004 no way.
    I never too had problem with pro version

    Indeed they are.

    No need to save data, no need to format.

    Your old windows (and user profile will be moved in the \windows.old folder)

    After the fresh install, just move your old user profile and programs that start w/o a proper installation back in the old path , import the profile (using forensit) and your windows will look the same as the old one (including app preferences, saved password in browsers and so on). Then refine installing the few programs that requires a proper installation (say Office).

    At the end of the day may be a better way than a proper in place upgrade, possibly requiring less time.

    Strange. Maybe your partition table or your bios have something strange and that's why upgrades failed.

    Use a native vhdx then and dual boot to it. (use winntsetup.exe if you have no idea of what I'm talking about)

    You don't need to go in the bios to dualboot.

    Just configure properly your bootloader. Use bootice for that

    I believe windows 10 italian version is a strange beast, it is not the first time it gives me problem.
    To resolve strange behaviour in the past i had to use the EN-US version.

    Albeit I prefer the EN version I use almost always the IT one because I'm also a translator of few programs, and having the IT version at my fingertips helps a lot.

    That said I never had troubles related to the localization.

    The only things you have to take in account is that MS genius translated also some system entities like some default usernames, so some scripts may fail if not properly translated.

    Other than that even mismatched in place upgrades (possible using a small trick) works as they should.
