I am trying to run a .bat file to upgrade from 7pro to 7ent but does not work. i have followed the set up for upgrade to w10 and works fine.
i am using a .bat ( Setup.exe /auto upgrade /installfrom c:\windows7_media\sources\install.wim /dynamicupdate disable )
to call out the install.wim in windows 7 enterprise source files. but i get this error.
"An unkown command-line option [/auto] was specified"

any suggestions

Hello Castane9,

To upgrade from 7 pro to 7 enterprise, you do not need the "/atuo" command at all. I have created a script that does the upgrade and works for us. I use the following:

 %systemdrive%\win7\setup.exe /unattended:C:\unattend.xml /noreboot

We use an unattended xml file. I copy this to the root C: drive.
