    This question should be asked in a Windows Forum, which is more appropriate for this kind of topics
    Windows 10 was available as free upgrade from previous Windows versions until July 29 2016: if you download Windows 10 ISO using the Media Creation Tool and use that ISO file to create a Windows 10 installation support, you need to have a Windows 10 Retail Product Key code (i.e., a license) to be able to install and activate Windows 10.
