Default Upgrading to Windows 10

Hello all,

If you still want to upgrade your Windows 7, 8, 8.1 to Windows 10 you still can.
Microsoft left a windows open that will allow you to still do the free upgrade. I don't know how long this windows will stay open....so upgrade now while you still have the chance.

Here is the link: Just follow the instructions

You Can Still Get Windows 10 for Free from Microsoft’s Accessibility Site

Just a update: I did upgrade 2 laptops and this does work.

Just a note: When you are upgrading you do not have to put in a product key, and when it's all installed....It will activate automatically when you go on-line.

I now have a digital licence with both laptops, and I can re-install Windows 10 anytime i want.

Yeah but the product number of the OS that you are upgrading from must be valid and be registered on the Microsoft upgrade website as a valid product number. Some issues with Windows 7 product numbers were causing problems initially. I do not know whether those issues have been addressed yet. Of course if the computer has UEFI bios then that is not an issue as the product number is stored in the BIOS. I think thats the way it works. I know that I have had some problems when upgrading from Windows 7 in the past when some upgrades would not validate.

Pete try it out, it should work for you. I've upgraded 2 laptops using this method.

Did you try upgrading using the media creation tool?

If so, then try the link below...it should work for you.
