This article provides instructions on how to update your machines to either Windows 10 or Windows 11. It covers the necessary steps and requirements for upgrading to these operating systems.
Update Windows via IT automation profiles
To automatically update your machines to Windows 10 or Windows 11, simply create a new IT automation profile and select the 'Upgrades' task. After you select the Upgrades task, apply the profile to your devices, and run the task when desired.
To upgrade your machine, it is necessary to have a valid license for that specific version. Windows upgrades involve time, utilizing network and disk resources, and possibly requiring multiple restarts.
If the device meets the compatibility requirements, enabling the "Upgrade to Windows 11" checkbox will initiate the upgrade process from Windows 10 to Windows 11
If both options are selected, the profile verifies the eligibility of the device and proceeds with upgrading to the most compatible and up-to-date Windows version, whether it be Windows 10 or 11.
- The "Upgrade Windows 10" option in the IT Automation profile is designed to update Windows 10 devices to the latest available version of Windows 10. It does not support upgrading older versions of Windows, such as Windows 8, to the latest version of Windows 10.
- The "Upgrade Windows 11" option in the IT Automation profile upgrades eligible Windows 10 devices to Windows 11 and updates existing Windows 11 devices, both to the latest build.
