    Upgrading from WIN 8 to Win 10

    hello,

    I have a desktop running Win 8

    Can anyone provide a step by step upgrade path/instructions to delete Win 8 and load/run Win 10..

    thanks
     
  3. How to reinstall Windows 10 if my computers used the free upgrade from 7 and 8?

    Will windows 10 still accept the license keys from 7 and 8 now if I reinstall my computer?

    Does Microsoft keep a list of users who upgraded to Win 10 using their 7 and 8 keys so that when users need to reinstall windows 10 the old keys would work?

    Do I need to call in Microsoft to ask them to activate my Windows 10 when I give them my win 7 keys?

    Both computers are laptops. The windows 7 machine had the serial printed on the back, and I needed to enter that when I upgraded to 10. The windows 8 machine had the serial built in inside its boot system so I didn't need to enter the key when I upgraded to 10, but I did manage to write down the keys using a fetcher program.
     
  4. Upgrading laptop from win 8 to 10

    Upgrade from 8.1 to Win 10

    Hi Roy,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    • Is this laptop compatible with Windows 10?
    • Are there drivers for Windows 10 for this laptop on HP website?

    I would suggest you to temporarily disable/un-install any HP's software if you have installed.

    Also, I would suggest you to start the upgrade by un-installing the updated drivers and installing basic windows drivers.

    Follow the steps mentioned below:




    • Right on the start icon and click on device manager

    • Expand Network/Device adapters, Select the adapter, right click and click on un-install.

    • Restart the computer.

      Now start the upgrade from an ISO and see if that helps.

      Hope this helps.
