    I've searched and searched but have so far found nothing about this, excuse me if this hasnt been posted.

    Does the Windows 10 upgrade work on small tablets? So far all ive found are people manually installing the ISOs and drivers which is a mess.

    Can anyone confirm it working on a 32GB windows tablet?

    To my knowledge, most tablets are Windows 8 with Bing, and MSFT mentioned they hadn't finalised how to upgrade these versions.
    I might be wrong, or using outdated information...

    upgraded my hp pavilion x2 10 2in1 (32GB) with 8.1+Bing to windows 10. It will remove the wimboot partition and you basically get that space back (+/- 2-3GB). after the upgrade, you will get windows 10 home.

    I have a HP Pavilion 13-p111nr x2 and according to their website, tablets/laptops with less than 128GB free space will need an external hard drive in order to complete the upgrade. I keep getting an error code and I cannot complete the upgrade.

    I had it running on a Dell Venue Pro 8 inch with 32gb hard drive. All was running well, but I rolled back to 8.1 because I wasn't a fan of the edge browser for tablets.

    Did you have to do anything to make it work? I think I did not have enough disk space when I tried the first time and I got a 'Something happened' error message. Now I am downloading the OS on USB stick and deleted what I could, including the recovery partition.

    To me is help factory reset, restoring initial state, then immediate upgrade via downloading mediacreationtool.exe and then choosing upgrade.

    Thanks. I will try that if what I have started fails again.

    I copied the iso to a SD card and ran setup from there on a Stream 7.

    I have an SD card. When I used the ISO tool and installed directly it gave me the option to store the download files on the SD card. Everything went smooth once I tried using the ISO tool.

    I upgraded yesterday with the media tool without creating an ISO first. It went relatively quickly, too, thanks for the tips.

    I installed Win10 on my HP Stream 7 via Windows Update as an in-place upgrade this morning. Went fine -- actually, it went much faster than I expected. I wish MS gave some more tips on "tablet mode" vs "desktop mode" on tablets, though, as I couldn't find my way back into OneDrive settings after telling it not to sync anything at first while in tablet mode (no icons on taskbar in tablet mode).

    Upgraded my Acer W4 last weekend.

    Initially after the upgrade, there was some screen lag but after Windows 10 installed some updates and restarted, it was smooth.

    Installed mine by extracting the Win 10 installation files from the ISO and running the setup from my SD card. Needed at least 6 gb free. The installation took some time and had me worried that it was stuck. Fortunately, it installed successfully and there was no major issues.

    I haven't but i would guess it won't be a problem as long as the tablet has an SD slot.

    I updated an Acer Iconia W3-810 with 32 GB successfully. However, OneDrive had completely filled the rest of available memory, and clearing 15 GB of free space would be a challenge, so I did a Keep Nothing upgrade with a USB stick. Worked fine.

    In tablet mode, hold the finger on taskbar until menu pop-up then choose Show all notification icons.

    When you say Windows update, is that where you use the command prompt to make it update or did it download regularly?

    Win 10 installed easily on my old Dell Venue 8 Pro (32) and it works fine. The only problem so far is that in Tablet mode Landscape, I only have one column of tiles as if it were running in Portrait. I've tried everything I can think of to change or add another column and am beginning to think it may be a limitation of the screen resolution and tablet size. If anyone has a fix Id be much obliged.

    Mine downloaded regularly and showed up in Settings> Update but there said it had to be installed differently. From the Desktop I think it was. But still simple, I didn't use command prompt,just clicked the link and it took off merrily on its own. Easier than when I did the Preview builds and this time there were the voice prompts telling me to just let it run.

    Thanks. I checked again and it started right up. Much easier than trying the manual way, which failed over and over. So now my Stream 7 is charging so that I can attach a USB drive with enough storage (my SD card only has 8 GB). I hope the battery lasts long enough to install!

    Thanks. I just toggled to desktop mode to get the icons needed, but my complaint here is that there is NOTHING that tells you this on first boot with a tablet (so if you don't already know the differences between tablet mode and desktop mode, you're pretty much left to wander in the dark for awhile).

    k72 -- my update downloaded regularly through Windows Update after I had reserved a copy using the "get windows 10" program on my Stream 7. Installation was completely normal & finished within an hour.
