The easiest way of upgrading your computer to Windows 10 is via Software Center. Using the upgrade option via Software Center, allows you to start the installation just before you leave work. Your computer will be finished and ready for use again the following morning.

What do you need to do before starting the upgrade?

  • Make sure that Cloud Services (Dropbox,GoogleDrive, iCloud, OneDrive etc.) are synchronized.
  • The computer must be connected to the UiB-network with a networks cable.
  • Disconnect memory sticks/external hard drives, etc. so you are just left with the USB mouse and USB keyboard connected to your computer.
