    Replacing Windows 7 on HD 1 with Windows 10 on HD 2?


    Hi!

    I upgraded to build 10240 today and hence have a clean Installation of Windows 10. This is instaled on an extra Partition of my 2nd harddisk while my live-System (Win 7) is on HD 1.
    The question is: could I use some clonig tool to copy the Windows 10 Partition to my 1st HD and therfore making it my live System without having to go trough the upgrade Win7/burn iso/make clean install - process on July 29th?

    Thank you!

    :)

    Get Windows 10 App appears on old HD but not on the new HD

    I have an old HD that I have Windows 7 Home SP1 installed. I reserved a copy of Windows 10 and see the "Get Windows 10" app on this old HD.

    I bought a new SSD HD to replace the old HD and installed my Windows 7 Home SP1 and all updates to this HD but I do not get the "Get Windows 10" app symbol in my system tray. I have made sure all necessary updates have been done but still no luck.

    I am not sure what to do because I do not want to upgrade to Windows 10 on the old HD but cant get the "Get Windows 10" to appear on the new HD.

    Re-upgrade - following a reformat

    HOW DO I - re-upgrade to Windows 10 on a PC where I have had to replace the failed HD ?

    Having replaced the HD and used the Hewlett Packard System recovery disks

    I Have no (Windows 7) Licence numbers as the HP PC came with the operating system (Windows 7) installed.

    Thankyou
