windows 11
While the older AMD desktop with 4 gb and an SSD and a B95 CPU took way under an hour to upgrade from 10pro, the ASUS notebook with more modern hardware, NVME SSD, faster I7 8550U CPU, 16gb, and all that took hours to finish the upgrade to 10pro. But it is working good anyway.

The older desktop, I used an upgrade by downloading the media creation tool, and started the upgrade in file manager.
The newer notebook 2 in1 PC, I used windows update. I was quite surprised how much longer it took, like all morning to do that.

Yep. The In-Place Upgrade is much faster than Windows Update. :-)
