    upgrade questions, windows 7 pro to windows 10


    Hi all, hope your having a great day.. I have a few desktop's I would like to upgrade, I have 3 that have windows 7 that I installed not long ago.. and I have 1 desktop with vista that came with it from the factory, it has the product key on the case, the other 3 I did a fresh install of win 7 pro,all separate installation disc with keys, I have 2 later desktops that have win 10 in them with separate keys and disc,heres the question.. can I upgrade the pc's with the win 7 using the win 10 disc from my other pc's and use the key from the win 7's to activate them??,would like to get win 10 in all of them.. Thanks guy's..

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    i've seen this when the stock USB drivers went kaput. Only ever seen it once - i used a PCI USB 2.0 card and connected the mouse and keyboard to that, and manually updated the USB 2/USB 3 drivers.

    upgrade questions, windows 7 pro to windows 10

    Dual Boot Windows question.

    Talking basic Windows for Windows, not upgrading to Windows 10.

    Upgrade path:
    Windows 7/8/8.1 Home upgrades to Windows 10 Home
    Windows 7/8/8.1 Pro upgrades to Windows 10 Pro
    Windows 7 Ultimate upgrades to Windows 10 Pro since there is no Ultimate version of Windows 10.

    But basic Windows Home license can't activate Windows Pro versions same for Office packs.
