    I would guess that just a few hrs would be long enough to activate.

    Definitely try and do a clean install of Windows 10. If it installs without issue, great. If it activates, even better. But worst case would be you have to go though the upgrade process of 7>10. But at least we know it's working.

    Currently replying from iPad.


    the new ISO/DVD worked however told me it was not active and I could not activate it so currently reinstalling 7 then going to try to upgrade straight from the same DVD. And see how that goes.
    Will keep you posted as best as I can

    Sp 1 is included in the update.
    i did not try any other updates did not know I needed to.
    I must have misread it and thought they meant reinstall 7 then try 10 straight away.

    I recommend you install all updates before trying to upgrade to 10 again, keep checking until there are no more updates also make sure your windows 7 is activated.

    I thought a user could install Windows 7, activate it and then jump into upgrading to Windows 10. Maybe I'm wrong, but I know my brother's system wasn't up to date on his Win7 machine and was able to upgrade to Win10. The only issue I had was he didn't have enough space on his drive.

    will download other updates now and see how it goes.
