Windows 10 Installs Automatically On Windows 7 And Windows 8

Windows 10 can Install Automatically On Windows 7 And Windows 8 through Microsoft Update. Why did they not do this before?



Read more on Upgrading to Windows 10 via Microsoft Update here.

Has anyone tried it?

Does it actually work successfully?

If it works flawlessly then this will be the best thing since sliced bread.

Last weekend I did a fresh install on my Windows 8.1 system. I only have a Windows 8.0 install on my flash drive, so I have to update to 8.1. This time, instead of going to the store to update, the 8.1 was installed through Windows Update. It worked flawlessly. I would assume that Win 10 will work exactly the same way. No more need to download it through the store, ya!

Yeah, Windows releases are usually around September - October. Think i'll wait for the full release or a build that is 100% stable before upgrading.

Saying that though, i'm sure they said in that Windows 10 live stream on the 21st of Jan that the retail preview of Windows 10 will available in three weeks. That was two weeks ago, so it should be dropping next week if true, might be worth using that if it is coming. The Windows 8 retail preview was pretty much the full retail version and had little to next to no bugs.

3D Mark are also working on a DX12 benchmark for windows 10 so that is one reason to upgrade now I suppose
