Inplace-upgrade with USB?!

Hey, We have some of small customers at my job, it causes som problems that they dont have SCCM, or other deployment tools. So they have decided to handle out usb sticks with .ISO file. And in my world, Its almost forbidden but well, lets do the best of it.

Ok. So what I know, we need to pay attention to some stuff.

* Power suppy
* Diskspace
* If the user pull the usb out
* Some popup´s so its easy for the user to go through this.
* If the user is already on the latest version. then we dont need run this.
* Make it run totally offline. (so its not need of any network connection)

Just follow the steps, and download the script here.
USB-stick –

1. First thing, We do a .bat file that trigger the script, just because they cant rightclick on the powershell script and run it as admin.

@setlocal enableextensions
@cd /d "%~dp0"
PowerShell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "& './Install-script-utan-preq.ps1'"

Save this in a folder.

2. Now we need the iso, in my case Its ‘Windows 10 Pro Swe’, put it in the same folder as the script.

3. Open Powershell ise, and start your script.
Always start a powershell script like this, because you should. Always

<# .SYNOPSIS   Name: Install-script.ps1 .DESCRIPTION   INplace upgrade from 1511 to 1703 .NOTES     Updated: 2017-09-11     Release Date: 2017-09-11   Author: Pontus Wendt #>

Always start a powershell script like this, because you should. Always

4 – Lets begin with Prerequisite

4.1 Check if the 1703 version already exist

Write-Host "#Check if you allready have Windows 10 1703" -ForegroundColor magenta
if ((Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_OperatingSystem -Namespace root/cimv2).BuildNumber -ne "15063") {
   #Script continues
} Else {
     $wshell = New-Object -ComObject Wscript.Shell
     $wshell.Popup("You allready have Windows 10 1703 installed",0,"Done",0x0)
         If ("OK" -eq "OK") {
  }  Else {

4.1 Check If you have a powersupply connected. there´s a bunch of code down here now, thats why I need to see if the computer is a Laptop or not, otherwise the results get very strange with desktop´s or hyper-v machines.

#Do function Get-Laptop
Function Get-Laptop
 [string]$computer = "localhost"
 $isLaptop = $false
 if(Get-WmiObject -Class win32_systemenclosure -ComputerName $computer | 
    Where-Object { $_.chassistypes -eq 9 -or $_.chassistypes -eq 10 `
    -or $_.chassistypes -eq 14})
   { $isLaptop = $true }
 if(Get-WmiObject -Class win32_battery -ComputerName $computer) 
   { $isLaptop = $true }
Write-Host "#Check if a Powersupply is connected. - CHECK" -ForegroundColor magenta
If(get-Laptop) { 
 if ((Get-CimInstance win32_battery).batterystatus -eq "2") {
   #Script continues
} Else {
     [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Hey, you need to connect the powersupply to continue, plug it in and try again.')
         If ("OK" -eq "OK") {
  }  Else {

4.2 Check if the computer have more than 5 Gigabyte left on the disk(C:)

Write-Host "#Check if the computer have more than 5GIG on C: - CHECK" -ForegroundColor magenta
if ((Get-CimInstance Win32_Logicaldisk).Freespace -gt "5000000000") {
#Script continues
} Else {
     [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Hey, you dont have diskspace for this upgrade, please try to remove files on your C: or contact the servicedesk.')
         If ("OK" -eq "OK") {
  }  Else {

5. Lets start the installation

5.1 Remove the C:\Win10 folder, (In case its corrupted files in the folder)

Write-Host "#Remove the C:\Win10 folder" -ForegroundColor magenta
Remove-Item  -Path "C:\Win10" -Force -Recurse -ErrorAction Continue | Out-Null

5.2 Create folder C:\Win10

Write-Host "#Create the C:\Win10 folder" -ForegroundColor magenta
New-Item -ItemType Directory -Path "C:\Win10" -Force | Out-Null
Remove-Item  -Path "C:\Win10" -Force -Recurse -ErrorAction Continue | Out-Null

5.3 Install the 7-zip on the machine ( We want to extract the .iso to C:\Win10)

Write-Host "#Installing 7-zip" -ForegroundColor magenta
.\7z1604-x64.exe /S -ErrorAction Continue | Start-sleep -s 10

5.4 Extract the .ISO to C:\Win10

Get-ChildItem .\SW_DVD5_Win_Pro_10_1703_64BIT_Swedish_MLF_X21-36776.iso | % {& "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" "x" $_.fullname "-oC:\Win10" -aoa}

5.5. Start the Inplace-upgrade
