Upgrade to Windows 10 with Software Center
Instructions for upgrading DiscoverIT-managed Windows 7 or 8 computers to Windows 10 using Software Center.
Before You Begin
- Back up your local data. The update should not remove files or programs but it is recommended to back everything up.
- This upgrade may take several hours. Please plan accordingly.
- Restart your computer. This will make sure all programs and user sessions are closed.
Upgrade to Windows 10
Open Software Center. The easiest way to find it is to search for "software" in the home menu.
Within Software Center, go to "Operating Systems", select "Windows 10 x64 Upgrade", and select "Install."
The computer will automatically restart multiple times during this process. It will not prompt before it restarts.
