  • In theory it might be possible, but why?  At this point Windows 10 is not a free upgrade, so you will need the license for Windows 10 either way.  On top of that during the upgrade you would have no control to customize it, so any tweaks or changes would all need to be scripted or done manually.

    You are just asking for more trouble than it is worth.  It would be much faster and easier to deploy just a customized Windows 10.

  • Now, Windows 10 upgrade is free again.

    We can deploy win 7 pro and then upgrade to win 10 pro, it's working.

    I do this all day. 

    And the OS is activate.

  • Hi

    In a license audit you need to have a minimum of two things to be compliant.

    1) Proff of the first OS license (Your Windows 7)

    2) Documentation of your upgrade before the 29 of juli.

  • I d'ont really understand :) 

    What kind of documentation of upgrade before the 29 juli ? 

    And if it's not autorized : why the upgrade with MDT 2013 it's working again ? 

    Thanks to your help, I just would like to understand.

    That can be and inventory report.

    I did not said that is it not possible to upgrade to Windows 10 - I just pointed out that it is not valid offer after the 29 of july 2016.
