I have two laptops one laptop use clean installation, and the second one uses an upgrade. I got the fact that clean installation only makes 15% - 20% installation faster. It might be because, in Fresh installation, you still need to erase the existing content, and it will be slower than the fresh installation if you do secure-erase. In conclusion: Before upgrading, do a clean-up of your Windows 10. Uninstall the unused software Use disk check and clean-up the disk Defrag your disk If you want to do a fresh installation, never choose secure erase; just use common erase. And don't forget to deactivate your software license that needs activation (i.e., Office, PDF reader, Video Editor software) Don't forget to keep your notebook connected in the power outlet so you will have faster installation than in battery That's it! Happy upgrading! //
