    It actually depends on the type of windows 7 disk safe01 has.
    It says Windows 7 Upgrade Kit on the packaging.

    If I understand the upgrade requirement correctly & you have that windows 7 upgrade kit installed. You will need to upgrade from windows 7 to windows 10 and see if it activates. If it doesn't activate, you can call Microsoft and tell them you upgrade from vista to 7 then to windows 10. If the activation completes or Microsoft gets your computer activated. Then you can do a clean install right away or you can wait. Just ignore the request(s) for the key during windows 10 clean install. Once 10 is up and running it will see you have digital entitlement. Note, if Microsoft gives you a new key, you might have to change to that key after a clean install is completed.

    Thanks. I don't know if I want to do all that though. I'll probably just upgrade to W10. Thanks for the info though
