  1. Windows 7 trial (no product key supplied) to Windows 10


    Hi, I have recently moved to a new hardrive and currently running free version of Windows 7. The laptop is 7 years old. Question:

    1) Will Windows allow to upgrade to Windows 10 from free version of Windows7?

    2) Is it better to buy a new Windows 10 and keep the old machine running on windows 10; in addition, buy a new machine


    Thanks

  2. 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.

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Two quick ways to use your Windows 7 key during the install:

    1. When asked for the serial #, put in that Windows 7 serial # and continue on. It should activate as soon as it hits an internet connection.

    2. When asked for the serial #, at bottom of window click on the I don't have a serial # text (or whatever it says). It will then ask what version you want to install, ie. Home or Pro. Be sure to install the right version that matches your Windows 7 key. Then once you get into windows you can activate by putting in the key. Some people prefer this method, not sure why honestly. Easier to do #1, since the installer will see your key and know which flavor of Windows 10 you are trying to install.
