Note that the new windows 10 21h1 is here: https://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=3350.msg36418#msg36418

Has anyone tried to upgrade a previous version of Windows by mounting the ISO and running the setup program? My experience is that upgrades fail constantly. I can't understand why upgrading Windows is so difficult to do.

Have experience of failure of upgrade from Win7 (final update) to Win10. I.e., Win10 installs mostly correctly, but that's useless - many Win7 apps runs incorrectly on Win10, or can't get their settings from registry, so you need to reinstall them. Also, upgrade doesn't clears all the garbage, leaved after Win7 on your disks. So, in my opinion, it's easier to make a clear installation of Win10.

I agree. A fresh W10 installation is always the best way to go. The problems I've had involve upgrading Windows 10 to a higher version. I'm am constantly getting failed upgrade errors and I almost never find a solution on Google.

Even Dism++ full cleanup doesn't work for me.

This is clearly badly written software. Since when has anybody had any trouble updating any distro of Linux, including Android? I've never had a Mac but I'm sure their OS is easy to upgrade assuming the computer supports it.

BTW thanks for privatezilla. I never heard of it until today.

If you have nvidia optimus linux upgrade is a mess.Full clean install is recommended for optimus.
I did in-place upgrade via setup.exe using custom ISO 21H1 and took 10 mins to upgrade w/o any issues.
