[TechWorm] Microsoft says no Windows 10 UPGRADE for Pirated versions - Page 3

post #21 of 28
the question I'm really interested in is can we do a clean install for free?
I don't do upgrades.

And if we can't then it'd be just plain dumb to have to install either w7 or w8.1 on a newly built pc or whatever and then having to upgrade that as well to get w10

You can most likely upgrade the key itself.

People said the same thing when upgrading from Win7 to Win8 and then Win8 to 8.1, yet I've used the keys they gave me after each upgrade processes atleast 10-15 times for clean installs so far.

The problem to my understanding of the issue is that Windows 10 upgrade comes via ie or Spartan browsers. I could be wrong of course but that's how I understood it to work.

When I upgraded from Win7 to Win8, the installation complained about my key and asked me to call a number.
After listening to the automated service and typing in my key and a couple of numbers.. I received an entirely different key that was a Win8 Pro Retail key.

I'm planning on repeating the same process this year considering I've already done it 2-3 times for some friends.

Keywords: I could be wrong.

I am not an employee. I'm an end user. It's been reported that future upgrades will come from Updates via ie's last stand or Spartan's launch. If I knew everything about this issue I would have my own corner office overlooking the Puget Sound. thumb.gif
