    I know how to slipstream the Win10 x64 install.wim into the x86 ISO files. But the current process, which is an in-place upgrade from Win7SP1 or Win8.1 to Win10, requires launching the old Windows, then triggering SETUP.EXE on the upgrade (folder, DVD or USB). But the process I know, slipping x64 wim into the x86 wim, leaves us with a USB root SETUP.EXE which is x86 and WILL NOT RUN an in-place upgrade on an (existing) x64 system. Do you have a solution, to get an x64 SETUP.EXE onto the slipstreamed All-in-One? Please be patient with advanced amateur, perhaps using more words instead of shorthand you might use with pros. Thanks!

    Change Autorun.inf on the root like this

    Code:
    [AutoRun.Amd64]
    open=setup.exe
    icon=setup.exe,0
    
    
    [Autorun]
    open=setup.exe
    icon=setup.exe,0

    Thought it would work but didn't. Works on 32-bit but you still get that 'insert 64-bit' message on 64 bit. Whatever anyone can figure out would be appreciated.

    Yep, afaik in-place upgrades need separate architecture AIOs. This and coleoptere2007 make me wonder...

    Tested further, sorry, not working. Same message--my .iso program starting extracting when I ran the setup file from it so I thought it was working, but would have gotten that put in the x64 disc message at the end of the extraction. Sorry, I tried--just not an expert.

    Update: Probable solution--first comment on webpage with an aio .iso (this may upgrade your system but I don't think it will allow you to keep you programs, files, etc. Use the original MSDN downloads for that and to keep your stuff. It may also not give you the free upgrade to Windows 10; again, use the MSDN download for that):

    Here's what it says:

    "The ISO [an aio just like ours] works great for clean installation of all versions in it.

    "However using upgrade option some people reported error "use the other installation disc that says 64 bit"

    "I discovered a solution;

    "Open the usb drive with the win10 installation files.
    Do not run the setup file here.
    Instead open the sources folder, and look for another setup file (it is 277kb size)
    Run this file and your upgrade will run fine from Ms Fatima's AIO iso (whether 32bit or 64bit). I don't know why this is so but it worked for me."

    Awesome. Thanks for the information ;)

    Just to make sure.

    When I run the setup.exe from the sources folder, it allows me to keep my personal files and settings or no?

    Not sure--maybe not. Looked a little different than from the upgrade that allowed that. All you have to do to keep everything is use the staight Microsoft download, for your system, x86 or x64 (instead of an aio), and pick the correct version (Home or Pro) depending on what you have, so the upgrade will fit within their guidlines for a free Windows 10. Again, using that you definitely can keep all programs, data, etc.

    No, if you read further at Ms. Fatima's website (instead of taking the first SWAG at this issue), you'll see that other readers tried that and found it doesn't work. Any other ideas?

    What I did to solve this was to take my new Fry's 64GB USB3 stick (Friday code sale at $18.88) and Rufus it to put on the All-in-One. Of course, that has the x86 SETUP.EXE and won't work for x64 in-place upgrade from W7SP1 or W8.1. But I then took an ISO which was strictly x64 and created a new folder for it with the ISO contents. This way, I do the in-place upgrade by browsing to the x64 folder and triggering the SETUP.EXE there. As one might say, it's inelegant.

    All in one .iso's just aren't as critical as they were with 7 and 8 since Microsoft's MSDN .iso's contain both Home and Pro and OEM and retail versions all in one shot. There's just one for x86 and one for x64. So unless you have a real need for Enterprise or Education versions you can have just two discs or USB sticks that will cover both Home and Pro, again, one for x86 and one for x64. They of course will do clean installs and not only will do upgrades without any fuss, but will do upgrades that give you the free version and keep your programs and data, something the aios don't seem to be capable of at the moment.
