    Hello Hendry,

    To get the free upgrade to Windows 10, you are agreeing to no longer have your Windows 7 key that you upgraded from activated for Windows 7 while you have the free Windows 10 installed and activated.

    Basically either or, but not both installed and activated as the same time.

    If you want both, then you need to either use a different Windows 7 key, or purchase Windows 10 to get a Windows 10 key to activate with instead.
