Windows 7: Fresh install of Win 7 Pro prior to Win 10 upgrade

Fresh install of Win 7 Pro prior to Win 10 upgrade

I am going to do a fresh install of my Win 7 Pro DVD prior to the Win 10 upgrade. Isn't there a way to downloads an iso file that has all up to date patches/SP's, etc and burn that to a new dvd rather than go through all the updates/SP's...etc ?

Thanks....TiminAz

No need to install 7 again look at this tutorial Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums just under step 7 talks about it.

You only need a genuine activated Windows 7 SP1 to upgrade to 10. It doesn't need the 200+ updates that came after SP1 for the upgrade to work. I've tested this.

Ok..sounds good...isn't there an iso file to download that would have SP1...rather than start from the original dvd without SP1 ?

Pay attention to what Bongo posted above. You don't need Win 7 installed, you can clean install Win 10.
