Hi

 

I've got a Toshiba laptop, Windows 7, T5870 Core 2 Duo. Can I upgrade from W7 to W10 using a 64bit version of W10? The current W7 installed is 32bit.

 

Second question. Does the recovery partition get updated with Updates as well as the Windows folder?

 

The reason I ask is that Toshiba put software on the hdd when new that allows a recovery disc to be created. It would be nice to think that if I made a recovery disc now that it would include all updates released since the computer was new...........

 

 

John

Yes, you can use 64bit and no it does not update the recovery partition. If you selected to do a factory reset you would have Windows 7 after the reset finished.

Thanks JohnC.

 

If I download a Windows 7 ISO (God help me, with my internet connection speed) is it straightforward to slipstream updates into it?

Reviewing your post again, you can't do a Windows 10 64bit upgrade on a 32bit system. You would need to do a clean install of Windows 10 64bit.

 

It is not very straightforward but you would need to mount the Windows 7 iso and then add the rollup update that Microsoft just released. Or just download the rollup update and after installing WIndows 7 run the update to bring it up to April 2016
