My friend has Windows 7 Home Premium. Which version of Windows 10 will it be eligible to upgrade to?

I have a volume license for Windows 7 Professional, should I update computers with Windows 7 Home to Windows 7 Pro before doing the upgrade to Windows 10?

Or will all the updating computers get the same "free version" of Windows 10?

I have googled, but nothing I've read is specifically identifying the version of Windows 10 I will get when I update.

Does anyone here know more?


Windows 7 Home Premium will get Windows 10 Home. Windows 7 Professional will get Windows 10 Pro.

Here is the upgrade matrix: Here is the upgrade matrix: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-specifications

Yes, you should update your Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional if you wish to get Windows 10 Pro.

  • I just googled Windows 10 Upgrade Matrix or Upgrade Paths or something along those lines. There are a bunch of articles with the information. Here is the one I used: neowin.net/news/… – MC10 Jul 15 '15 at 19:58
