My son wants to upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on his laptop.

I used to dual-boot it with Linuxmint, then I wanted to re-partition the 
laptop to keep fragmenting to a minimum (!)... Before starting the 
laptop for the first time, I imaged the hd to an external hd (500GB, but 
it only used a fraction of that)... I'm preparing to back up the data, 
and test this original image before proceeding... He's a gamer and so at 
some point I hope to run the gaming version of Ultimate Edition and/or 
Steam from an USB3-connected external hd. He has tried Linux, so he's 
got an more of an idea of what the laptop is capable of.
I didn't see an easy way of doing LoL under Linux, so he's not impressed
with Linux.

I told my son that, if possible, he'll want to keep his options open so 
he can go back to 8.1 if he doesn't like version 10.
