Upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 is still Free in 2018

The free upgrade ticket from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 is supposed to end in 2017 and was extended in 2018 by a couple of weeks. But believe it or not, the offer is still on the table. So, grab it while it’s still available.

Upgrade from Windows 7

All it requires is a genuinely activated Windows 7 to start with. As long as it’s activated, you can start the upgrading process and enjoy the free Windows 10 without paying a dime.

Sæktu Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant Tool from Microsoft and upgrade right from Windows 7.

Fresh install Windows 10

If you wish to have a fresh start on Windows 10, sækja Media Creation Tool from Microsoft, prepare a bootable Windows 10 installation USB drive and all you need to get start from there is to get a legit Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 product key handy, and enter them in when prompted during the fresh installation of Windows 10.

What I have tested so far

So far, I have successfully:

  • installed Windows 10 on a Vista-preloaded machine using a legit Windows 7 key
  • upgraded a 5-year-old genuinely activated Windows 7 computer to Windows 10
  • installed Windows 10 on a Hyper-V host using a legit Windows 7 key, og
  • upgraded a genuinely activated Windows 7 virtual machine to Windows 10

Long story short, it seems that as long as you have a legit Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 product key, you are still able to enjoy the free upgrade and jump to the Windows 10 wagon without buying a license.
