    Upgrade to 10 pro


    My old computer that died had Windows 10 Pro on it, so got a refurbed Dell Optiplex with 7 Pro on it. Is it possible to upgrade to 10 on this machine without spending a lot of money for the 10 OS?

    Yep. Download the Windows 10 ISO file:
    Windows 10 ISO Download

    Mount it using a program like WinCDEmu:

    Run setup.exe from the mounted ISO file.

    Following the link provided I went there & read the article as to how to download & install 10; no luck. I've tried 2 times to run this application 'MediaCreationTool' & each time got the following error code 0x1800103-0x90002. After the first time I went online searching for an answer. Found this from an individual who said he deleted the folder; $Windows.~BT. I cut the folder & moved to an external HDD & ran the program again & got same results plus the folder had been recreated. Have no idea what it is.

    Why not download the ISO file using option 1?

    Apparently you deleted the wrong thing...
    ...I deleted all the files inside the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder and run the setup again and it got past that error.

    You should be able to clean install Windows 10 on the Dell and use the Windows 7 key on the COA of the Dell to activate Windows 10.

    Navy correct if I`m wrong

    You can use the links above to download the Iso file, or just click here Access Denied

    And use this simple program to burn the Iso file to DVD at the slowest possible speed.

    Can you not, just run the MCT and select "upgrade now"? And skip downloading anything? Or have they removed that part? I get an "update now" option but I'm already running Windows 10.

    You downloaded the wrong ISO, You don't want "Single language". You want the one labeled "Windows 10". It's multi edition Home and Pro.
