    Once your Windows 8 is installed and activated, you have two choices. You can install all updates, and wait for the GWX icon to appear and do an upgrade to 10 from Windows Update, or download the Media Creation Tool and manually upgrade. This assumes that you have a retail license of Windows 8 (not an OEM one). If you have an OEM, you either need to buy a new license of Windows 10 or a new license of 7 or 8.x and upgrade.
