    This would be a better deal:
    Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit | eBay

    Windows 7 Home Premium - $50. Except a second install to get Windows 10 Home 64bit would be required. Or use the getosstate.exe and genuineticket.xml file method to move to Windows 10 Home 64bit the first time.

    Ah, right, forgot about that as a one-step alternative. I'm still trying to get used to that after Brink posted the tutorial and gave some legitimacy to it for me.

    Too bad it won't work to go from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Home, eh?

    If I get stuck with Windows 10 Professional on one computer, I will not be too disappointed. Just have to take an hour or so to get it configured and install all the programs.

    Yes, it worked!!! It was still a lot of work installing and cloning the OSs, but I now have Windows 10 for $49!
