How to upgrade multiple Windows 7 computers to Windows 10 on one site

I need to be able to upgrade multiple Windows 7 installations at a client site to Windows 10. Is there a way to do this using some sort of script rather than having to manually upgrade each one of the units at a time?

you can use a tool like MDT which requires a server and pxe.  or SCCM.  other than that the only way is by using a boot stick or something like that.

the only  winning you have from upgrade is that it does bnot cost you a licence per PC
But all other facts point a fresh install out as the better option.
btw - i'm just having such a pc in, and am doing a fresh install of windows 7

I never had any problems with a single upgrade from win7 - and I did many, many. Just worth noting that there is no official reason it should not work well.

I'm beginning to get the feeling that single one-on-one upgrades or new installs are recommended! :D

@McKnife - That was sort-of said in jest. Some of the customers we will be dealing with will only have one or two computers. Others may have a hundred - at this point we are not sure, hence the original question.

I'm pretty sure that when there are only a couple, we will probably just upgrade manually but we'll have to suck it and see.

Thanks to all for the comments. They were all helpful but I'm not sure there is any single comment I can put a finger on at this point that represents the solution.

Cheers
