    Hi,
    has anyone done this.
    I have a Surface pro 3 (256GB I7) and would like to use Win 10 Enterprise natively without loosing my existing Win 8.1 setup... its my main work computer.

    I have used win 7 USB download tool to install win 10 E on a USB stick, but I can't get it to load.

    Your help is very much appreciated

    Sepp

    My SP3 would only boot from a USB when I held the volume down button along with pressing the power button.

    I think some others have been successful in installing via VHD, perhaps they might be able to help.
