Windows 10: Windows 10 upgrade
It makes a difference what Windows 10 ISO you choose. To be sure you get the right one, download and run ShowKeyPlus. That will tell you what version of Windows 7 you have installed now. Also I believe when you choose the language, British English is International English.

Ther is also a MediaCreationTool
It makes a difference what Windows 10 ISO you download. You have to match the version of Windows 7 you have installed. To be sure, download and run ShowKeyPlus. That will tell you exactly what version you need.

When you choose a language, I believe British English is the same as International English.
You have to download the Windows 10 ISO from the link I posted. Place it in the folder you created on the Desktop. Right click on the ISO and put the cursor on 7-Zip from the menu. A new menu will pop up. Then click on Exract Here.
ok got my key , when you say ISO it says mediacreationtool i can't see a ISO file
I HAVE CLICKED ON THE WINDOWS CREATION TOOL AND IT IS STARTING TO DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 , I WONDER IF THIS ONE WILL WORK ? FINGERS CROSSED
It's not that you need the key, you need to look at the Product Nane. If it says Windows 7 N, then you need to download the Windows 10 N iso. If the is no letter after Windows 7, then download the Windows 10 ISO with no letter after it.
Don't plug in you flash drive or create install material. Part way down the page clich the little download arrow next to Windown 10. Click on which ISO you want to download, then click Confirm, then you choose 32-bit or 64-bit and click Confirm, next you language and click Confirm.
I see what you are talking about. The link I posted looks different. I was using my iPad to answer your questions. I think that's why.
Go to this page and download the Windows 10 ISO. Follow the steps I posted above.
Its just windows 10 home premium I have
The pic of the window that I have up and attached , there is no download arrow next to windows 10 .
On the download in the folder on the desktop there was a media creation tool and a little arrow when I right click that , below 7_Zip there is CRC SHA and an arrow, go across there and there is CRC-32 CRC-64 SHA-1 SHA-256 not sure what they are should I have clicked CRC-64 ?
I HAVE JUST FOUND THE ISO FILE ON THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE SO I AM NOW DOWNLOADING IT , IT WILL TAKE 4 HOURS ITS 4.2GB , CAN I LEAVE IT TILL TOMORROW ? IF I DO WILL I LOSE THE WINDOWS 10 FREE , DON'T KNOW IF I SHOULD JUST LEAVE IT OVERNIGHT TO DOWNLOAD , WHAT DO YOU THINK .

Look at the bottom line of ShowKeyPlus. OEM Edition, what version does it say?
Are you downloading the iso? See my post above, click on Tech Bench.
YES I am downloading now from the tech bench , my version is 1.0.5835 and is windows 7 home premium so I choose just windows 10 .Do you think I can leave it running and get back to it tomorrow morning as it is not even up to 1gb yet or will it be to late to get the free windows 10 , its 23.18 hours here and am getting tired . I don't really want to stay up for 4 hours waiting I have been with it for hours already as you know .
I feel that we as experts on this forum should try and persuade any novices who are not sure about upgrading to Windows 10 should help explain why its good for them to upgrade from earlier versions.
So I'll start off:
• Latest security
I have some Win 7 upgrade dvds from Microsoft, previously used on pc's that have now been upgraded to Win 10.
Q: Can I use a Win 7 upgrade on an old Win XP unit ? Will it be refused as an already used key ?
What I am aiming to accomplish is...
Had Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit OEM-SLP on HP laptop and got the Get Windows 10 icon a few weeks ago. Reserved copy but as it didnt download i went to Microsoft and downloaded the Media Creation tool to upgrade that way. After install all worked...
my bro windows 8.1 pro OEM
i dont get tray icon windows upgrade
i did click windows update still noting to get tray icon windows 10 upgrade
Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
