Deploying Windows 10 Upgrade to Windows 7 systems silently


Using the SyAM Management Utilities you can silently run the Windows 10 upgrade to your Windows 7 systems.




Copy the files used for the Windows 10 upgrade to a folder in your shared apps folder




Create a batch file to run the silent upgrade


@ECHO OFF

mkdir c:\windows10

xcopy /Y \\192.168.200.37\apps\windows10\*.* /s c:\windows10

timeout 50

cd \

cd windows10

setup /auto upgrade /quiet


**PLEASE NOTE** It is recommended to run through a few test systems first, if the system does not upgrade run the command on the system without the /quiet so you can see if there are non compatible applications that need to be removed before it can upgrade to Windows 10



Create a Third Party Template to run the upgrade



**PLEASE REMEBER to check off "Do not Check for process completion" as the system will be rebooting as part of the upgrade process


This means the job will report back its success but the upgrade is still taking place.



Give the systems 30-60 minutes to complete the upgrade.


Then select the systems, right click and choose Refresh. This will then update the interface showing their new operating system




Now you have confirmed the upgrade you and remove the files used for the upgrade.


Create a batch file to remove the folder used for the upgrade



@ECHO OFF

C:

cd \

rd c:\windows10 /S /Q

exit
