  • You can in-place upgrade to any version of Windows 10 for which you have source media from any of the OS you mentioned.

  • Dear Sir,

    Are you planning to use ConfigMgr to upgrade the OS on your computer? If so, I hope the following information is helpful to you.

    The in-place upgrade scenario has the following features:

    • Upgrades the OS on computers that currently run:

      • Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1. You can also do build-to-build upgrades of Windows 10. For example, you can upgrade Windows 10 version 1607 to Windows 10, version 1709.

      • Windows Server 2012. You can also do build-to-build upgrades of Windows Server 2016. For more information about supported upgrade paths, see Supported upgrade paths.

    • Retains the applications, settings, and user data on the computer.

    • Has no external dependencies, such as the Windows ADK.

    • Is faster and more resilient than traditional OS deployments.

    For more details please refer to the following article:

  • Yes i am planning to use SCCM to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro 1809 but getting an error while add upgrade image. I downloaded windows 10 Pro media using Windows 10 Media Creation Tool.

  • Hi,

    The Windows 10 upgrade package must be the same edition, architecture, and language as the clients that you upgrade. For more information, please see:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/osd/get-started/manage-operating-system-upgrade-packages

    Also make sure you have permission to access it.

    Please also note that the following tasks are not compatible with the in-place upgrade. They require you to use traditional OS deployments:
    Changing the computer's domain membership, or updating the local Administrators group.
    Implementing a fundamental change on the computer, such as:
    Changing disk partitions
    Changing the system architecture from x86 to x64
    Implementing UEFI. (For more information on a possible option, see Convert from BIOS to UEFI during an in-place upgrade.)
    Modifying the base OS language
    You have custom requirements including using a custom base image, using third-party disk encryption, or require WinPE offline operations.

    Here is a step-by-step blog for your reference:

  • I've never heard of anyone downloading the media using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool to import in to SCCM. Typically we download it from MVLS. Be sure to extract the .wim from the iso file. Maybe you are browsing to the iso instead which does not work.

  • We don't have vl. All OEM. Yes there is no wim file that's why it was not working but after extracting install.esd file to install.wim, it is extracting Windows 10 Education Edition and not Pro.

    Any Suggestions?

    Thanks.

    AS far as I know the "free upgrade to Window 10" was a limited time offer from Microsoft and has expired. In other words, it's not legal to upgrade your OEM licenses.
