    windows 7

    upgrade back to window 10 after crash?

    my computer couldnt boot after a migration so, after a lot of trouble I installed windows 7 ultimate on my new disk. I still have the windows 10 disk with all of the data I just cant boot from that disk anymore.
    is there anyway of getting back my windows 10 instalation or reinstalling windows 10?
    BTW this all hapened 4 days after the free upgrade ended so I could not have used the free upgrade.


    I installed windows 10 as it was before using the windows 10 update tool(MediaCreationToolx64.exe - Google Drive)
    It automaticly used my windows 7 key and it worked, no guarantee it wil work in the future.

    Windows 10 Pro x64 - XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

    Sorry the free upgrade has finished you will need to purchase a copy of Windows 10 unless you can persuade Microsoft otherwise ...

    Mircosoft still offer installation options such as ISO files - If you activated your windows 10 on your hardware use the ISO or USB stick to install it will activate automatically
