Re: Win 10 free upgrade


I did the free Windows 10 x64 Home version upgrade yesterday on my W10 compliant hardware, software and drivers.  As happened before, the process went off without a hitch.  I was working out in the shop while most of the process took place.  It completed the upgrade within the two hours or so that I was off doing other things.

For what it is worth I THINK I remember reading that  if you install Windows 10 and use the Windows 7 key it nullifies the Windows 7 operating system and you can't use it anymore because the key is no longer associated with Windows 7 but now Windows 10.

Hi Phil,

I haven't tried it yet. I have another 500 GB SATA drive I could try it 
on. May do that this weekend.

I believe there is a way to do the clean install with the ISO and the Win7 key. Can't recall the steps right now.

After downloading the ISO from MS a few weeks back and using a Win 7
key, it worked for me.  I did the upgrade though, not a clean install.
Probably should have done a clean install.
