Perform an in-place upgrade
The simplest way to upgrade PCs that are currently running Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 is to do an in-place upgrade, which automatically preserves data, settings, applications, and drivers.
Perform a traditional deployment
While newer scenarios such as in-place upgrade and dynamic provisioning may reduce the need for traditional deployment methods, some organizations may still need to opt for an image-based deployment of Windows 10.
Use dynamic provisioning
With Windows 10, you can create provisioning packages that let you quickly configure a device without having to install a new image.
