  1. Upgrade Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro


    I have a computer that I am attempting to upgrade to Windows 10. It is currently Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. I have attempted to use the Media Creation Tool to do this as I have done probably a 100 times at time point and I am not able to upgrade without erasing all the settings and apps. Those options are grayed out with a message at the end of the Windows saying "Your files, apps, and settings can't be kept because you're installing an edition of Windows that's different than the one you're currently using."

    I have tried a fair amount of options based on online searches (disabling Anti-virus, checking the languages/regions settings, registry settings for Program Files) but have not been able to by-pass this.

    What I suspect may have happened is this. Originally I think this system had Windows 10 Home installed and somewhere along the line Windows 7 Pro was installed over it. Is it possible that the Media Creation Tool is seeing Windows 7 Pro and remnants of Windows 10 Home and doesn't know how to overcome this? Is there a way to force Windows 10 Pro onto this system without a clean install? Any and all suggestions welcome!


    Thanks!

    :)

    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.

    Query on Clean installation of Windows 10 Pro on Windows 7 Pro PC.

    Original Title: Windows 7 Pro (from MS upgrade key) to Windows 10 Pro - Clean Install

    My Gateway NV7923U X64 came with Windows 7 Home installed.

    I purchased an upgrade key from MS and upgraded to Windows 7 Pro.

    I need to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro and then do a clean install.

    • Will my existing upgraded Windows 7 Pro now upgrade to Windows 10 Pro automatically, or do I need to perform additional steps?
    • Will I be able to do a clean install and have Windows 10 Pro after upgrading?
     
  4. Upgrade Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro

    Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    I have bought a legit "Windows 10 Pro" key of a key website. It is legit since i'm currently using it for over a year now. I currently have Windows 10 Pro installed on my PC and I want to do a clean install. I just can't find the windows 10 Pro download in the tool. But if i could use a windows 10 pro key with a normal windows 10 install, I'll be good to go.
