Hello All,

We have server 2012 standard, with around 100 users using Windows 7 pro, we would like to take advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 10 that is available over the next couple of weeks to upgrade all these users. Would appreciate any advice or tips. Possibly even a group policy - Just any best way of doing this the fastest and most efficient way possible.

Many Thanks.

You need to test a few machines.

Windows 7 machines (especially older ones) have legacy and incompatible software. You need to remove this and test.
The likelihood you could mass upgrade 100 old machines and come out fine is nearly zero.

Read my article on Windows 10 one year later.

You are very welcome.  Good luck. I think Windows 10 is a good operating system and I am using it, but most of my clients are letting existing Windows 7 machines retire in due course.
