  1. Upgrading to Windows 10 Professional using a windows 7 Professional Key


    Hi,


    Hoping someone can give me a proper and definitive answer on this as there are multiple conflicting answers.


    1. Can you upgrade from windows 10 home to windows 10 Professional using a Windows 7 professional Key ?


    2. Can you install windows 10 Pro and activate it using a windows 7 Pro Key ?


    3. Can you upgrade from windows 8.1 to windows 10 Pro using a windows 8.1 professional key


    4. Can you upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 Professional using a windows 7 Pro key


    5. If you are able to upgrade will that key now register as a windows 10 pro key and not a windows 7 pro key any more ?


    6. After upgrading will you still be able to roll back to previous OS ? (incase you need to format and reload or for whatever reason)


    I have also found two articles (Listed Below) stating that it is possible but would rather get a proper answer from the OEM

  3. Windows 7 Home Premium -> Professional Upgrade

    I think it will work.

    System Builder always includes a 32-bit or 64-bit disk.

    All Windows 7 keys work for both 32-bit and 64-bit. You can switch so long as you have the media (ISO/DVD) but switching between 32-bit and 64-bit requires a clean install.

    What you linked has no media, only the key. Just follow the instructions @newtekie1 gave in post #7 and it should be good to go so long as the key is legitimate.

  4. Upgrading to Windows 10 Professional using a windows 7 Professional Key

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
