Hey guys,


Just letting you know that you can still upgrade to windows 10 for free from windows 8/8.1 and 7, and I know this because I recently upgraded my mates laptop to windows 10, using his license that is embedded into the mobo.


How?  I used the media creation tool to do the upgrade.

There is caveat to upgrading, 

''If you have a PC running a genuine copy of Windows 7/8/8.1 (Home or Pro edition only, properly licensed and activated), you can follow the same steps I did to upgrade it to Windows 10.''


The link has good step by step instructions.   There is some explanations at the beginning of the Blog, the How To starts at the big blue screen.
