I decided today to upgrade my Windows 8.1 Microsoft Surface Gen 3 to Windows 10. I decided to document the process to this upgrade.
The first thing I did was click the little Windows 10 bug in the right had corner system tray
I then went threw the screen to upgrade after sitting looking at this screen for over an hour
on a 100 meg connection this should have never taken an hour so I decided to go to Microsoft’s ISO site and download and install Windows 10 manually.
After you download the tool a screen comes up asking if you want to upgrade this PC or create ISO I clicked on upgrade this PC.
Then it starts downloading Windows 10
The next step it will start and say Creating Windows 10 Media
Windows will then Check Your PC Before upgrading
You will need to Accept The License Agreement
Windows will then check for update one last time
Windows will then make sure your ready
Then Your Ready To Install!!!!
Installing Windows 10
After The Install Choose Your Profile
Pick Your Settings
Enable Cortana If You Would Like
Check Out Your Apps
Windows 10 is installed and ready to use
I would say my overall experience upgrading was fine. I was kind shocked when the Windows bug gave me a hard time but I just went the manual route. The Surface Pro is a Microsoft product so I expected the upgrade to go smooth but that is not always the case with Microsoft products. Overall good upgrade experience.
