    Good point there Cliff. They buy it first and pay and then I'll upgrade it if they want.

The only issue is wouldn't the resale value go down and be considered used instead of new once the seal of the box is broken?
    The requirements for the Free Win10 are either Win7 w/SP1 or Win8.1. My opinion is to convince the buyer/s to let you upgrade/update from the stated Win8 to Win8.1 [Free from the Store] then decide on Win10.

    Using the ISO you do not need to go from 8 to 8.1

    Neither SP1 for Windows 7 nor Window 8.1 is required for the free upgrade. Non-SP1 Windows 7 and Windows 8.0 upgrades just fine to Windows 10.

    Just checked with Microsoft and the Surface Pro 2 actually has Windows 8.1 Pro. Never used them so don't remember which Windows 8.x Pro it came with.

    After I said that, it reminds me that I have a ASUS G73S that I completely disassembled 4 years ago meaning took every screw and component out that came with Windows 7 Home Premium before I even turned the machine on. Was planning to run FreeBSD/Linux on it. In any case, looks like that machine, I will either have to put it back together and put the original HD back in to update to Windows 10 before July 29, 2016 unless there is another way to register the key with Microsoft.

    Good thing someone put up this guide:

    It won't show up in Windows Update, but you can use either the Media Creation Tool or ISO downloaded from Tech Bench.
