    windows 10 Problem


    A year ago Microsoft sends me a free update link for windows 10 since I have a genuine windows7 ultimate
    At the first I made an upgrade for the windows7 on a different hard disk after two months I had some problem so I made a clean installation for the windows 10 on this new hard disk
    Yesterday windows was download an update during this download I shut down the PC after an hour I turn it on again
    I got the blue screen said you have a start up boot failure
    I tried to go to safe mode with no success then I put windows10 usb to repair the system with no success after that I start the pc to have a big surprise its start on the old windows 7 which I had on the old hard disk even I boot from the new one I try to reinstall windows 10 with no success because it says you do not have a genuine windows pleas activate your windows I try to inter the key for windows 7 it did not accept it
    When I boot from the old hard disk I find that I have a genuine windows
    What can I do?

    Everyone got the message that they could download Windows 10 when it was released. Since you are having issues, just reinstall Windows 10, but do not choose to activate during the install process. Once you get logged into the desktop then let it activate from the info that is on Microsoft's servers that will match hardware id info with your volume license that they assigned your machine.

    Just click 'I don't have one' if asked for the key.

    Exactly. There is a Volume key that Microsoft has to allow you to change home to the Pro version. The only issue is that they took away all of the best reasons to use Pro over Home when they made those items Enterprise and above.

    I do not have the permission to do so
    After finalizing the usb
    I have a message say you have a fake serial key activate first then update to windows 10
    That on the new hard disk
    I have the same windows on the old one already activated

    With a Windows 10 ISO you should be able to do a clean install of Windows 10. When asked for a key select "I don't have one" If you can save any data you don't want to lose first. With a clean install you lose everything.

    You don't have to start with a working Windows 7 so you can upgrade it to Windows 10. When you did the upgrade last year Microsoft put a digital licence on their activation servers for your PC. You can now do a clean install of Windows 10 and it will be activated automatically.

    You must install the same type (Home or Pro) as you had before. Just say 'I don't have one' when Setup asks for the product key and Windows will get your digital licence from the activation servers.

    You can get to that point if you boot from the install media.
