    Are you installing from the Media Creation Tool?

  5. "On google, selected DOWNLOAD NOW and the process started with above results. Not familiar with Media Creation Tool?"

  6. I'm not familiar with your method, but the fact it was found through a Google search makes me wonder if it is legitimate.

    If you aren't using the system tray app to upgrade, then I would definitely use the Media Creation Tool.

    Windows 10

    You can choose to make an .iso file or a USB flash drive for installing later, or upgrade the system now. If you choose that option, you'll be given a choice to keep your files, or clear everything.

    staubrj561,

    1. There are only 2 "official" Windows 10 ISO download sites:
    Media Creation Tool (MCT)
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/soft...load/windows10

    Tech Bench
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/soft...load/techbench

    Which one did you use ?
    I would speculate that you were using the first link ...... MCT link.

    2. You said "selected DOWNLOAD NOW ".
    Are you sure you did not select "Upgrade now" ? Like this one..............

    3. You said " Downloaded/installed but requests a product key for Win10???? "
    What is the exact wording ? Can you post a screenshot where it requests a product key ?
    Did you try entering the Win 7 product key ?
