It’s still possible to upgrade Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 computers to Windows 10 without paying for a license. The offer to upgrade for free officially expired on the 29th of July last year, but Microsoft still offers the possibility of a free Windows 10 upgrade.

I’m still waiting for Microsoft to offer me money to use Win10.

Any data being sent to Microsoft isn’t “Constitutionally” protected because anything in the cloud is fair game no warrant required.

Unfortunately the media creation tool doesn’t work to create a USB bootable. So has anyone got this to work? It’s already clean formatted to Fat32 and I tired a NTFS formatted version neither work. I did find a link that works to allow you to create USB bootable version to install for laptops without OD.

I tried it and it created a USB drive. So the one from Microsoft only creates DVD media not a actual USB drive. As long as they keep it open I will try again after making both the Windows Disc and USB drive will do a clean install. My latest try on Windows 10 upgrade over Win7 was a good up til I tried to use IE11 and FF of which both Browsers froze and didn’t do anything and Corta also froze for any search. That should’ve been my first indication something was wrong.

I used RUFUS to create the usb bootable from the downloaded files. Is this what you are looking for?

The link I got works fine and it created a Bootable Windows 10 Pro USB that can be used to format on laptop w/o OD. That’s something one needs now both DVD and USB media options.

My brother gave this a updater a try with a computer that never had Windows 10 and also confirms it works fine. :wink:

He had a desktop running Windows 10, but in order to upgrade the RAM he had to update the BIOS. During the firmware upgrade, Windows gave a BSOD, bricking the motherboard and apparently a common issue with his MSI motherboard, which can only be fixed with a replacement chip and SMD soldering. :doh:

So he dusted off a desktop that still had Windows 7 and gave the update tool a try instead of trying to apply years of Windows updates. About an hour and a half later, he was running Windows 10 and also checked that it was activated.

I did my past upgrade switch so I can install and not have to worry about buying Windows 10 Pro. So I don’t have to pay since I got my upgrade during the free time and all I do is activate and it’s a go.
