"Free" windows 10 upgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been unsuccessful in completing a Win7 Home to Win10 upgrade. I have attempted it from within 7 about a half doz times and get a variety of error messages. It has even reached the stage where it wants to abort and recover 7! I have attempted it both from within 7 and by creating an install disk from the downloaded msi file and attempting a upgrade of 7 to 10 via that route. again no success.  I have been able to do a fresh install of 10 on this box with no issues.  I should also note that this box has successful run both win 8, 8.1 and the beta version of 10. My issue is the serial number for current the win10 install.  I need one, as the only way I could install the production version of 10 was to do a new install of 10.  I have no intension of buying a copy of 10 as I feel that I am qualified for the free upgrade from 7 to 10. How do I go about obtaining one?
