Hello guys, i am trying to update windows 8.1 to windows 10 using a windows 10 Disk, i try to boot the laptop and go through the Windows DVD installation process but i get an error after pressing the upgrade button, that i have to disable Microsoft creation tool, restart and do the upgrade from windows, but its not working that way it is saying use the other installation disk that says 64bit, note that both version are on this Disk so im a bit confused, any ideas ? i really need to upgrade and my connection sucks there is no way to do it online.

The best way and less prone to issues is to upgrade Windows 10 is to perform a Clean install. However it is your choice. I also highly recommend that you create an image backup with the following programs prior to install. See the following link to guide you either way. Also read the last link regarding preparing for Windows Creator Update. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you, it's a banking computer and there is no way to do a clean install or time for all that backup, i ended up doing the upgrade from a Windows 10 ISO file, ran it on windows 8 and continued the operation.
