      This is a shout out to all Ask Woody Experts.

      I am preparing to upgrade my Windows 7 Pro 64 bit pc to Windows 10 Pro using the Media Creation Tool. I’m at the stage where you’re asked to accept the license terms before final installation.

      I understand I will need a password to login once Windows 10 is officially installed. Problem is I never created a password to login to Windows 7. I am the “Administrator”. Do I need to create a password for Windows 7 before I click “accept” to install Windows 10?

      I await any advice.

      After the download of the Windows installer, if you are connected to the network when you go through the install, it will force you to create a Microsoft ID and you will be required to also create a password.
      If you do the upgrade disconnected from the network, you can create a Local Account and if it requires you to also create a password, you can change back to no password afterward for the Local Account.
      You do not have to create the password in Win7 before you start the upgrade.

        I think I will disconnect from the internet and go the local account route. I pray this upgrade occurs with no problems!
