Upgrade to Windows 10 for free (especially from Windows 7)

Support for Windows 7 is now officially over, which means Microsoft wants any holdouts to upgrade to Windows 10. The idea is that Windows 10 will help keep your devices running securely and smoothly.

If you have an older PC or laptop running Windows 7, you have two options. The first is to purchase the Windows 10 Home edition, which costs $139 on Microsoft’s website. The second way is to use the free upgrade offer from Microsoft. Technically the offer ended in 2016, but at the time this video was posted, it still worked.

I take you step by step through the upgrade process and show you how we handled a few frustrating moments we encountered on the way.

  1. Who needs to upgrade?…raise your hand! What are you upgrading from? If you're in an upgrading kind of mood here's the easiest way to upgrade to iPhone 11 or 11 Pro https://youtu.be/UOQz1EOc1bY

  2. It’s worked. Went from windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I had to retry it like 5 times thought because it would stop at a certain percentage. But then It finally worked! Thanks!!!

  3. Just want to thank you for this excellent video. I downloaded the free upgrade to Window 10 yesterday with no problem. Thank you.

  4. Will upgrading to windows 10 from 7 wipe out my files on the computer? and what about my software, will there be any changes? Mercil

  5. This video is just too cool – very clear and extremely helpful in navigating thru something I've been dreading either doing myself or forking over the $139 for a Windows 10 purchase and $100 to a computer shop to do it for me. Your "Control panel –> System Security –> System" tip showed an already activated Windows 7 version so no activation key was even necessary. An update was necessary to run incompatible software like next year's TurboTax, system updates, and others. Total time < 2 hrs from start to a new, free, Windows 10 system. (I can't imagine who the one out of twenty thumbs down disgruntles are, but put me in the 19 our of 20 who say "Good job, great video and very grateful!"

  6. I let the installation run overnight and now I am not able to log on. My account for the laptop is not available only "Owner" and I am unable to reset the password.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

  7. This didn't work. I recieved a message the installation failed in the safe_os phase with an error during replicate_oc operation

  8. I am so glad this was provided. Windows 7 was acting up. My clock was not updating. Also files starting to not save automatically. Had to rename them. If don't got lost forever.

  9. I did the upgrade and now it's just black screen with a flashing -? But it has not been an hour yet so maybe it's still going to work?

  10. Another way to get Windows 10 for Free. Let's say you don't have an OS on your computer but want to install Windows 10 on it for free. All that is required is a version of Windows 10 iso burned onto a USB or Flash Drive and a Windows 7/8.0/8.1 License Key. The License key dictates what version of Windows 10 you are going to get, either Home or Pro and of course will give you a choice of either 32 bit or 64 bit Windows 10. Start out with Windows 10 version 1809 iso that has both 32bit and 64bit on it. You can get the iso file by going through the procedures you went through in your video, just don't chose the install now option. You'll need a small utility called ISO to USB in order to burn the iso file onto a usb stick. I would recommend a 16GB or bigger stick to burn the ISO on to. When you boot the USB on the machine to install Windows 10 on, it will ask you for a License key during the installation process. Give it your Windows 7/8/8.1 license key and it will fully license Windows 10 to run on that machine after installation.

  11. After upgrading to 10 what’s happens to 7 ?? Is that still running in the background and taking up space in hard drive??

  12. just wondering going through the download process now but dont know my product key is there a way to find out what it is? or will it download anyway as i have windows 7?

  13. Awesome this worked great except for windows 7 being so clunky it failed multiple times before it went all the way through.

  14. It's July 17th 2020 and this actually works.
    Thanks for sharing such a great way to upgrade. May u have a peaceful life.

  15. Do i need a super fast internet to do this? Our internet is so slow and that is my problem before i do this

  16. I got the error first time but now it is installing. I will Edit when I am done with everything. Hope it works!

  17. I have installed windows 10 exactly by your method but it is showing that
    the installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during REPLICATE_OC operation


  18. Thank you! I’m downloading on two old laptops with windows 7! I hope this solves a lot of issues I’ve been having lol

  19. uh, did you actually mean no more support for serial mice & keyboards? not sure I've heard serialized? that and what you held up was a PS/2 keyboard and mouse which I can assure everyone WIN10 supports PS/2 keyboards as I am typing with one right now. if someone commented on this already I missed it. confess I only looked at the first page worth of comments.

  20. Thank you so much brother. I've downloaded windows 10 update and everything so far is going good. Now it is downloading windows 10 progress is 60% I hope that the update will be successful 👍🏼

    Edit: It worked. Everything worked fine. I just needed the product key and I got it. And now it is working in updates. The whole setup was fast. Only here it is taking more time for working on updates. But I can wait for that. I'll update this comment when everything is done.

    Edit 2:- I got the whole upgrade done it successfully worked as the video said except for one thing the keyboard and the mouse didn't stop working. Also my pc before also was not genuine and now also it is non genuine. Other than that it still works. I stopped using my pc from December as my exams were going on after that my pc stopped working as it works on HDD and then now this month in July I tried to start my PC and it worked. And then suddenly when I was trying to update my internet explorer 8 I came to know that microsoft has stopped that version and now only internet explorer 11 works and Microsoft edge browser is released. I tried to install internet explorer 11 and came to know that microsoft stopped all services on windows 7 this January. I got disappointed but thought let it be what can we do but Thanks to you brother for this video. Because of you my dream came true for windows 10. But still my hardware is old and slow I need to upgrade that. Once again thank you so much. ❤️ From 🇮🇳

  21. It did work for me too👌👏. Upgraded from activated Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro, and it dint ask the key to enter at any stage. It was super easy and smooth. Thanks for the nice share. I could save approx. 10,000/- INR

  22. what if my windows 7 is not activated/ not genuine, how can i upgrade it to windows 10? please help me, need to upgrade my pc to use it in my online classes.
