Upgrade from W7 Ultimate

Forums General Discussion Observatory computer setup Upgrade from W7 Ultimate

Dr Paul Leyland

I wasn’t sure whether to revive this thread or start a new one but then plumped for this.  Background: today is the re-awakening for my W7-Ultimate observatory controller.  Windoze Update just brung over 66 updates (it’s been asleep since April 2 after all) and a dire warning that security updates will not be available after January 14 2020.  Actually, Enero 14 2020 because it’s a Spanish install but we know what it means.

The material posted above indicates that W10 home should work fine but it isn’t clear whether that is through a fresh install or after upgrading from (presumably) W7.  Can anyone set my mind at rest please?  The hassle of re-installing everything anew is daunting so I’d much prefer to upgrade.

Thanks,   Paul
