Windows 7 Pro -> Windows 10 Enterprise: Is it possible?

    Question

  • I've got 300 computers that have Win7 PRO on them currently and valuable app's that I can not quickly go find software for to reinstall.  I do need Windows 10 enterprise on our network before 2018.  Any help is appreciated.

  • Hi Eclifton,

    What is the exact deploying environment? Do you have MDT or SCCM in the environment?
    First of all, you should get the Windows 10 Enterprise license.
    Welcome to the Volume Licensing Service Center
    https://www.microsoft.com/Licensing/servicecenter/default.aspx

    We could perform in-place upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise. It will keep the software.

    Before we upgraded to Windows 10, we should check the compatibility issue.

  • Thanks for the response MeipoXu.

    We do not have SCCM currently as our Microsoft Deployment server.  We use the DELL Kace environment.  I've put my Volume Licensing .iso's and come to the conclusion I can not upgrade my pc directly from Win 7 PRO to Win 10 enterprise. I also tried going from Win 7 PRO to Enterprise and that did not work as well. I suspect I have to reinstall all applications. If SCCM is an option that will let this work, let me know. I'm going to reach out to DELL to see what they say.

    "I've put my Volume Licensing .iso's and come to the conclusion I can not upgrade my pc directly from Win 7 PRO to Win 10 enterprise."
    Have you booted with Windows 10 Enterprise ISO and choose "Upgrade" install?

    As far as I know, it should be available to upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise from Windows 7 Pro.
