    Any Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 can be upgraded to Windows 10. Period.
    As long as its a Legal Version of Windows.

    Sorry, I don't understand! The PC was built for me and windows 7 was installed with OEM software. The software has been verified by MS.

    your last line says it all.
    He's stated earlier tried 2 keys, Belarc + sticker, that option is only applicable to OEM comps.
    Gigabyte, apart from a very few exceptions, do not supply to OEM's

    Windows 10 will take OEM and Retail keys as long as their legal keys.

    from what you posted in the W7 forum it was an upgrade from Vista.
    Built comps only have a system builder/retail key, 1 and 1 only.

    post the Mgadiag on the W7 and we can tell for sure

    Does not need too, as Showkey will show any and all Windows keys and display which type they are OEM or Retail keys.
    Plus .....do not want this user to post His Windows key in a public forum either.....

    It looks like you are trying to UPGRADE from within an installed version of Windows 7? If your Windows 7 is genuine and activated, AND you have downloaded the correct edition of Windows 10, the upgrade will not ask you for a product key at all. In Windows 7 please open an elevated ("Run as administrator") command prompt and enter:
    slmgr /dlv

    Please post the results here. Also run:
    winver

    Please post those results here. Then we can tell you what might be going wrong.
