    Use Your Windows 7 Key to Activate Windows 10

    Via Forbes -

    Microsoft Changes Windows 10 'Free Upgrade' Rules

    “If you install this build of the Windows 10 Insider Preview on a PC and it doesn’t automatically activate, you can enter the product key from Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 used to activate the prior Windows version on the same device to activate Windows 10 by going to Settings > Update & security > Activation and selecting Change Product Key,” he explained.
    Unclear at this time if it invalidates the key for the original O/S it came from.

    Well, at least it makes the process easier

    I read it was invalidating people's OS before they switched the key rules. I was only going to update if I had the option to roll back, too much fuckery with PC games right now anyway.

    I rolled back my tower pc weeks ago when 10 first came out. It gives you that option for a month and I did it within the window. Not sure what happens after that month... but I was getting BSOD's like mad.

    Have Win 10 on three machines - haven't had any issues so far other than Edge not working on a bunch of sites.

    Is there a limited time frame to install the free upgrade or as long as I've accepted it I can leave it indefinitely?

    I thought it was a year to do the upgrade - i'm not sure if there's other ways to get around it though...
