    Go online or to a shop and buy a copy, that way people who make or develop things earn the money to be able to buy other goods or services and that is how we all manage to live.

    I am sure someone with a kinder disposition who will help you, will come along

    Hey there. If before upgrading you have genuine copy of Windows, then you rolled back, you should have genuine copy again. If it turned out to be not genuine, then your Windows isn't genuine in the first place. It's a cracked copy, probably installed by your PC seller and they claim it to be genuine.

    With ISO, yes. If you don't want to lose your data, in Media Creation Tool you should select 'upgrade this PC' instead of 'create installation media for another PC'.

    I don't think that's right, I think you can do the same upgrade from an ISO as you can from the MCT.

    To the OP, you can install Windows 10 even on non-genuine Windows, it just won't activate. When it doesn't activate, you can't personalize it, but it's usable. To be able to personalize an un-activate installation, you need to shell out the dollars to buy Windows 10, which will activate it.

    There was an article on this on the main page a couple of weeks back.

    Upgrade from ISO doesn't wipe out the user data.

    It has nothing to do with people not wanting to help, there are cases of people with legitimate issues with losing genuine status, in which cases most here would gladly help. But little info was given regarding your current setup so ....

    U can use iso in two ways to install
    1.if u use it while using ur windows 7or 8.1 then it won't wipe anything...it will store ur previous version of windows files in windows.old folder and u will able to undo all changes and use ur previous version of windows
    2.if u boot iso then all data will be wiped (depending on u in which drive u want to install that will be formatted for installation of w10)

    It has been indicated elsewhere that users without a genuine copy of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 can be upgraded to Windows 10. However, the non-genuine status of their OS will be carried over once they upgrade to Windows 10 - they will not be "activated". Also, those with a non-genuine copy of 7, 8 or 8.1 will not have received the notification to reserve a copy of Windows 10 (before July 29). Hence, by either using the wuauclt.exe in Admin Command Prompt or the other methods of forcing the update in 7, 8 or 8.1, a user (even without a genuine copy of the OS) should be able to upgrade to Windows 10.

    Again, a genuine OS can be upgraded to activated 10, and a non-genuine OS should be able to be activated to non-activated 10.

    Additional info: If indeed you were already able to initiate the upgrade process and that you encountered some error and found yourself back to a previous version of the OS, then the information provided by other users (i.e. looking for the License Key for your previous OS version and activating that OS version, and then upgrading again to Windows 10) is the correct way of upgrading to an activated version of Windows 10. The steps are exactly the same - the same steps that you were already able to do before encountering the upgrade error.

    Also to add to what gpobernardo said, if you enroll on the Windows Insider Program your windows 10 will be activated. But, as of right now the program is on hold due to the release of windows 10, so it will still show the activation message. Just wait until the program is back and it will activate. ONLY DO THIS IF YOUR ARE WILLING TO UPGRADE YOUR PC WITH POSSIBLE BUGS AND CRASHES ANY TIME A NEW UPGRADE IS AVAILABLE. IF YOU ARE WINDOWS SAVVY DO IT. If not then I don't recommend the program to you.

    Couple of things:

    1) If your PC was running a genuine copy of Windows 7 then you can still go back to it, options are either a clean install or use the restore option in Windows 10

    2) If I were you I would do this:
    - Backup existing data somewhere
    - Download genuine Windows 7 SP1 ISO from DigitalRiver and perform a clean install using the Windows 7 USB Tool
    - Activate it using your license key (provided you have one, check on your cabinet for the sticker with the key in case of OEM). If Windows is activated then proceed further. If you are having trouble activating it then call MS and they should be able to assist. If you do not have a key then unfortunately there no point in reading further
    - Download all Windows Updates till you don't see them anymore
    - Download Windows 10 ISO from the MS website and perform an upgrade within Windows 7, the OS will activate automatically once upgraded
    - If you are having trouble activating then reach out to MS again, they should be able to help

    I would like to point out that I have tried a non-genuine upgrade in a VM from Windows 7 to 10. I used a program that I probably cannot mention here to make it genuine (I've since deleted the VM) I got the notification just fine, and used the cmd prompt to force the upgrade, upon the upgrade being completed I had no issue with the product key, although I am curious to see what would happen if I used the same Microsoft account on another computer. Would it still be classed as genuine or not?

    The key being genuine or not is not tied to your Microsoft account but the hardware configuration of the machine.

    I had a non genuine copy of windows 7 and updated to w10 a few days back. But after upgrading, there was a watermark showing that windows needs to be activated (which requires a key that I didn't have). So yes, microsoft will detect that you have a pirated copy.

    You don't lose your data if you choose the option during setup. I used the iso method.

    Plus, my graphics card got all crazy cuz the driver needed to be updated for w10 support. It caused a lot of unnecessary ruckus, so in the end I reverted back to windows 7( you need to create a system restore point before install in order to do it). After reverting back the non pirated status still showed up. So in the end I used the WAT remover tool to get things back to normal.

    You can upgrade your non genuine Windows 7 to Windows 10 non genuine edition :)
    If you go to Control Panel -> System and your Windows 7 says it's activated, when you upgraded to Windows 10, it will be activated.

    If you are indeed suffering from sudden loss of activation after rolling back from 10 and you have an OEM install, the Key is stored in your BIOS and this tool will reveal it so you can reinstall a legitimate copy of 7 or 8.1.

    ProduKey - Recover lost product key (CD-Key) of Windows/MS-Office/SQL Server

    If you do not have an OEM copy, you will have to find your install disk or correspond with the OEM or shop where you originally obtained the Windows.


    If you never had a key to begin with, we do not discuss piracy on this board or help others to get paid software for free.
