    How should I upgrade Windows 10 Version 1709 in my laptop, to Version 1809?

    Assume that I do not want to format my laptop and perform clean installation of Windows 10, since it is an office laptop.

    Thank you very much for your explanation.

    #1. Get 1809 Refresh ISO with language and architecture matching the system installed on your laptop.

    #2. Create backup of old system (recommended).

    #2.1. Disable or better uninstall 3rd party Antivirus (valid addition by @pf100).

    #3. Mount the ISO and run setup.exe. Follow the screens, it should offer to keep programs and settings.

    #4. Start process.

    #5. hold your breath and pray to your gods...

    In addition to what you said, I always disable/uninstall antivirus/antimalware (except Defender) before #3 mounting the ISO and installing. I've had a couple of ISO installs not work until I did that.

    I have found that it wouldn't upgrade from the .iso files until I disconnected from the internet. I never understood why but after I did that Windows 10 build whatever would then upgrade.
