    Hi Everyone

    Can I upgrade from windows 8 to Windows 10 or do I have to upgrade to windows 8.1 first and then to windows 10.

    Thanks

    Did someone test it without upgrading to 8.1? I will have to upgrade a notebook to windows 10, at the moment there is windows 8 installed but the upgrade to 8.1 fails because of some driver errors this model has.
    So maybe it would be easier to upgrade directly. I someone tested it I would be interessted.

    If you use Microsoft Media Creation tool, you can without any problem at all upgrade from a clean Win8.0 installation, without installing a single update.
    Just start Win10 setup.exe from your USB/DVD from Explorer inside an activated Win8.0, and you have a Win10 installation within short time.
    Don't believe all you read, trying it out is the best thing, and I have tried it out on several computers now.
    BUT if you are using the upgrade icon thing, then you are correct.

    It is an Acer v5-573G. Regarding the complaibing people in the net it is a bigger problem to upgrade to 8.1
    Already thought about going the easier way with 7 then 10 :)

    For systems running Windows 7 RTM or Windows 8.0 RTM that cannot be updated Service Pack 1 and Update 1 respectively; how can they qualify for the free upgrade?

    Persons running those releases will need to perform an offline upgrade using the .ISO file for Windows 10 which will be available

    From the link in lobo11 post.

    I checked on Acer website; all drivers for 8.1 and 10 are available, so u can use an option by following this guide and do a W 8.1 fresh installation. Once done migrate to windows 10. It's up to you. :)

    Nice! Should save me a lot of work and trouble. Will try it in some days too. Thanks :biggrin:

    Edit: upgrade from 8.0 to 10 worked fine with iso. Windows 10 was automatically activated!
