    Running windows 7 inside windows 10 and Updating to windows 10


    I struggle against change. I fear the abuse that may come from Microsoft as I have watched how Computers have caused enourmouse trama over the last ~30 years. - since ~1986 around when DOS 1.1 came out. I have watched the industry torture those in small office situations. For the small office users - our time has not at all been respected and we have been pushed into buying in hopes of saving only to find out we have been duped. Computers were at first such a huge heartache for everyone and often it made things take much longer. Many men threw up their hands and said IM OUT I RETIRE.
    I am uncomfortable with windows 10 and how it has forced updates on folks. We have our windows 7 machines now and they are really the first machines that really made us productive. XP kinda but the hardware was not up to par just yet. But windows 7 has been a great experience for me.

    I have been hearing a lot about being able to create one large file that is my windows 7 computer called a ISO and I can take that file and mount it like as if my computer would be just like having a windows 7 computer. All my programs that wont run on 10 now will.
    And apparently I can also run windows XP as well inside of windows 10 by using the virtual machine that comes with windows 10.

    So for me and any other users who are interested in this idea - How well is this working out ? Do xp and win 7 setups run fast as virtual machines.? Do the newest builds and versions disable the Virtual Machine setups or make them slow and useless or have the windows 10 updates been respectful of the virtual machine setups ? that run in the virtual machines ?

    :)

    Windows 10 Activation (Insider)

    I bought Windows 7 Pro OEM key from G2Play.net for 12€ to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro - worked like a charm but be advised if you buy a OEM key you can not download the Win 7 iso from microsoft and have to get it elsewhere.

    Running windows 7 inside windows 10 and Updating to windows 10

    Windows 10 Activation (Insider)

    Hi!

    I signed up in the windows insider program and got windows 10 free - the windows 10 insider preview updated to windows 10 pro.
    Today i got another SSD and did a raid 0 on my system forcing me to do a clean install of windows but now it wont activate anymore.
    Signing in with my microsoft account that was linked to the insider program didnt help.
    Maybe i got this problem since i quit the insider program for several days and signed up again after i found out that my win 10 wont activate anymore.
    Any ideas how to fix it?
