    Is it still possible to upgrade to W10 from W8.1 Pro?


    My current laptop is having BSOD issues for the past few weeks. I've thought of trying to fix it (or reinstalling the OS), but then why not just upgrade to W10? I currently have the key that I used to install my current W8.1 Pro. If it's still possible, what would be the steps that I would need to do?

    Yes it is possible - all methods still work. The deadline to upgrade passed without anything actually changing.

    Just a quick note, to solve the crash, try to disable windows "fast startup/start"; I was also havind BSOD lately on win 81
    and that solved the problem for me.
    Also if your BSOD is hardware related, upgrading will not give any benefit.
