I also searched hours and hours for a free tool, but I did not found any. Profile Wiz from forensit was the one we bought and used then.
This is the manual process, you can also automate it. I have written a .NET profile migration that automates it, perhaps I'll share if the above doesn't work for you
Login with admin user (not one of the users)
Load hive, browse to original profile, select NTUSER.DAT (not NTUSER.DAT.LOG) and type a name
Open permissions to the name you gave and give new account full control and force inheritance
ist. Each key here is associated with a user account on this computer. Go through each key and look at the "ProfileImagePath" string. Find the one that is for the profile you get when logging into original account (usually username.computername)
Change it to original profile path
Browse to original profile
Open permissions and give new account full control and force inheritance
Restart and log in with your account

For 1 machine simply boot from the current OS and then start the upgrade process using the download windows 10 media tool.
on a larger scale use microsoft Deployment Tool that is fully explained @
Note: there are 2 different upgrade scenarios, there is using hard link migration (faster) and the save the users data, wipe reload and then restore users data.
