Windows 10 officially came out, all users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will be able to update for free during the first year, so they will have the license forever and will receive the corresponding updates for free. Those who do not update during the first year of the launch will have to pay to update. Today we will explain how to install windows 10 from Windows 7.
For Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, the update process is virtually identical. The first thing is to book the update to Windows 10, at first you would have to see the Windows icon in the system tray, clicking on it you can make the reservation. If it is not in the system tray try the following, enter the “Control Panel”, “System and security”, “Windows Update”, you may get the option to reserve Windows 10.
In case you have a “pirated” copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you can upgrade for free to Windows 10 and you will have an activated copy as if you had paid for it. Therefore you will receive all the updates that Microsoft is launching.
To get Windows 10 for free you have to be a member of the Windows Insider program. This implies installing all the new Builds that are going through Windows Update; you will be a beta tester. If at some point you decide to abandon the Windows Insider program, Windows 10 will no longer be activated. Then you will have to install a legitimate copy of Windows 7 or 8.1, then you can upgrade to Windows 10.
Once you are a member, you can install Windows 10 in two ways. The first would be downloading an.EXE that will be available on the Windows Insider page, when executing the .EXE, the download, and installation of Windows 10 will begin. Once again we recommend making a backup, although at the beginning the update process did would have to erase nothing.
Installing Windows 10 from scratch without having to update will also be possible. Normally Windows Insider can download the latest ISO image. Right now it is not available, but on the day of the launch, it will be available again. Simply download the ISO and transfer it to a pendrive or DVD. If you choose a pendrive, Microsoft has a very useful tool, makes the whole process much easier.
