can I upgrade my Win7 home premium 64 to Win10 Pro 64? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am about to build my next computer based on GA X470 Aorus Ultra and AMD Ryzen 5 2600X. I am in Australia.

    I do have an original Win7 home premium 64. Should I install the latter, will I be able to upgrade to Win10 Pro 64?

    Thanks for your advice

  • Hi John.

    Yes, Windows 10 Home Premium x64 can be upgraded to Windows 10 Pro x64.
    You need to have a valid Windows 10 Pro Retail license, since the free upgrade to Windows 10 is not available anymore.

    Bye.

  • Hi John,

    According to the hardware configurations of your new machine, upgrade to Windows 10 Pro is a proper plan.

    You need a Windows 10 Pro license because free upgrade deadline has been missed.

  • AMD states that Windows 10 - 64-Bit Edition is what is supported with the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X CPU.  The old Windows 7 is not so you should go ahead and purchase Windows 10 Pro. Please review this article.

  • Personally, I would always stay away from an upgrade if I can.

    If you are looking to using Windows 10. Install Windows 10.

    A Windows 7 to Windows 10 upgrade could cause issues and have you starting all over again. 

    Just my 2 cents....
