Upgrading to Windows 10

If you purchased your PC with Windows 10 already installed and have no interest in dual-booting, this appendix isn't for you. Go straight to the Introduction, or Chapter 1, at the beginning of this book, and forget all about upgrading.

If you purchased an upgrade version of Windows 10 to replace your current version of Windows and you haven't installed that upgrade, this appendix helps you complete the upgrade. However, you don't have to read the entire appendix to install your upgrade. Just do this:

  1. Insert the disk that came with your Windows 10 upgrade into your computer's disk drive and wait a few seconds.
  2. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to install Windows 10 by upgrading your current version of Windows.

When the installation is complete, remove the disk from your disk drive, put it someplace safe, and ignore the rest of this appendix. If these two steps don't quite get the job done, read on.
