  • As I understand it, that is already in the command. The switch "/auto upgrade" is what keeps the files and settings.

    I have a question for you though as I am trying to do the same thing. When I try to run the registry check it keeps telling me it failed. Are you running into this or have you gotten that far?

    Below is my error:

    Checking if registry 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion' value 'ProductName' is equal to 'Windows 10 Pro' did not succeed: (0)

    Thanks and good luck! - cmurphy 5 years ago
