    Windows 3.1 > Windows 10


    No need to do any windows updates.....

    Just download the windows 8.1 Setup media > Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help

    And then just run the setup.exe from within your current host OS...

    You can also jump right to Windows 10 by downloading the windows 10 setup media > https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/techbench

    And again just run the setup.exe from within your current host OS
