    Can't you just upgrade again ? Other way would be to do clean install.

    Download the Windows 10 ISO file, mount it in Windows 7 with a program like WinISO, and run setup.exe from the mounted ISO file.

    If you upgraded from 7 to 10 in the free upgrade period you already have a digital licence for 10 on the Microsoft activation servers. You can do another upgrade or a clean install. Either way, if asked for a product key click 'I don't have one'. Your Windows 10 will be activated automatically from the existing digital licence.
