Upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10 on Parallels for Mac OSX

Before you start, it is a good idea to back up your existing Windows 7 virtual machine that you are about to upgrade because once you've converted it to Windows 10 there's no going back.

You will need to first download and run the Compatibility Update kb2952664 from here:

32-bit Version http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/updt/2015/05/windows6.1-kb2952664-v10-x86_57787952e4f934ba3ff690d94463a63b1df4a72f.msu

64-bit Version http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/updt/2015/05/windows6.1-kb2952664-v10-x64_6cb844c61ff4a77098ee895e0f2904d494ff5d24.msu

Then you need to download the Windows 10 Installer application:

32-bit Version

64-bit Version

This application MUST be run with AS ADMINISTRATOR for it to work properly. Then you just follow the prompts on the screen to convert your working virtual Windows 7 machine into a Windows 10 edition.

This is a follow-up to a demo I made last year (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgAC2hWAUgI), but this time around I am looking at the newly released Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
