Windows 10 Professional Upgrade

HP ProBook
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

We just purchased this laptop, it came with Windows 7 Pro, with a free upgrade disk to Windows 10 Pro. However, there is no dvd drive, and we don't have an external dvd drive. Is there someway to do the update without using the dvd? It's aggravating to have to go out and buy an external dvd drive just to update one laptop.

You should be able to upgrade with the Media Creation Tool.

You can download the tool here:

https://www.microsoft.com/software-download/windows10

Follow the steps in the tool for upgrading to Windows 10.

Do not forget to back-up you data first!

As it turns out, if you have Windows 7 Pro, and you just use the Microsoft online upgrade, it'll upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. So in the end it turned out to be fairly simple.
