  1. Thanks for fixing the links and for the guide. Quick question, if I activate Windows 7 after upgrading from XP to Vista to 7… then I shouldn’t need a product key for Windows 10 as long as it’s before the end of the month, correct? Windows 10 upgrade from the activated Windows 7 should do it automatically, correct? Or do I just skip activating Windows 7 and then use my Windows 7 Product Key to activate Windows 10? Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Ujn,

      That is correct, if you first activate Windows 7 and then upgrade to Windows 10, just press skip when prompted for a key during the upgrade process. When the upgrade is complete, Windows 10 will be automatically activated.

      You can currently use a Windows 7 key to activate Windows 10, but only with new installations (i.e. not upgrades).

      The free upgrade to Windows 10 ends on 29th July 2016.

      Kind Regards,
      Chris.

    1. Hi Ujn,

      I really appreciate you letting me know about this. It seems the article has become broken after a WordPress plugin update a while ago. My apologies!

      Should be fixed now.

      Thanks again,
      Chris.
