Windows as a Service offers a new way to build, deploy and service Windows workstations. This process has been so daunting for businesses that Microsoft has had to repeatedly extend support of older builds of Windows 10. This session aims to show you how to keep Windows upgraded based on our real-world experiences with Windows 10 and Configuration Manager. We will walk you through each step; some areas will seem light and easy while others will be quite deep and complex. We will cover: - Planning - Pre-assessment - Building the tools, scripts, etc. for the upgrade - Setting everything up in Configuration Manager - POC, Pilot the Upgrade - Ready for production

What you will learn:
  • Windows 10 In-place upgrade from Windows 7/10 to newer version of Windows 10
  • How to conduct pre-assessment and catch problematic machines BEFORE they would fail the upgrade
  • Go from 0 to hero all while putting final control of the upgrade in your users' hands
  • BIOS update and configuration during the in-place upgrade
