    win7 upgrade to win10 using USB


    my motherboard failed and I installed a new MB. My HD has win7 loaded and I am trying to upgrade using a USB drive. I get a message say I cant upgrade from USB I need to boot from HD. I can't because new MB is a Z390 and wont recognize the USB ports so I can log on to Win7 on my HD. How do I upgrade using the USB? My win key works fine so that is not an issue.

    :)

    Win7 to Win10 upgrade issue ... 0xC1900101-0x30017 and then 0x40017

    hi, Andre,

    yes, i think my note did say that i already created the bootable ISO on a DVD and started the Win10 upgrade from there. i already contacted the vendor and he gave me a list of Win10 drivers, suggested the bootable ISO upgrade method but did not recommend
    a new BIOS update.

    My PC is a ZOTAC CI320none with an Intel processor running a licensed Win7 Home Premium SP1.

  3. Hardships converting from Win7 to Win10

    I recently upgraded a number of Win7 PCs to Win10 and found that all of them got activated without me purchasing a Win10 licence. I do not know if this is universal or just plain luck. You could do this to find out:

    1. Use the free version of Macrium Reflect to create an image of your Win7 installation. Park the image file on an external USB disk.
    2. Run the upgrade via this link:

      Windows 10 herunterladen
    3. Complete the pending updates.
    4. Check if Win10 is activated.
    5. If it is not, reverse the upgrade, using Macrium Reflect.

    Win7 --> Win10 upgrade

    When MS made the Win10 free upgrade available, I upgraded my win7 system to win10. Some time after that, I had a disk failure and reinstalled win7 because it was my understanding the free win10 upgrade was no longer available. That was a year and a half
    or so ago. Now I was just reading that, in fact, Microsoft keeps that information on a server and that I could, in fact, reinstall win10. Is that correct? I would really have to put win10 on and then find out it wasn't licensed and I had to go back and reinstall
    win7.
