I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I own several computers. Some PC's and a mid-2010 iMac 27 inch. Windows 10 upgrade worked fine on my PC's. After I signed up for the upgrade on my iMac Bootcamp running Windows 7 Ultimate, Apple announced it will not support my particular iMac version. I
have tried to no avail to stop the Windows 10 upgrade, which has failed several times. I have uninstalled Windows updates associated with the upgrade: KB 3035583, KB 3033929, and KB2952664, and hidden them in Windows Update. Any suggestions as to how to stop
Windows 10 upgrade? Any work around to install the upgrade on my iMac?

Thanks, Jeff

Yes, these entries were carried over from W7 and are not required in W10 because Media Centre is no longer part of W10. You can safely delete these.

I upgraded yesterday and it took almost nine hours! I lost my internet connections but after another call for updates it was recovered..
My concern at present is that I have the "store" tile but cannot get to the "store" as it blips and goes to blue. Another thing is some of the tiles on the start screen have a white cross on a black circle. When clicked they warn you cannot access the app and should consult with the System Administrator to remedy. As I am the only user who do I consult with? If anyone can help me I would be grateful...

I have windows 7 enterprise x64 installed on my machine. I've been having troubles for a while. Many updates don't install, and device drivers won't install when a new device is plugged in (extremely annoying). I thought that I could do an in-place upgrade install and possibly fix the problem, but I'm getting the following error message (on both an attempt to upgrade back to win 7 enterprise and also to win 8 enterprise):

"An error prevented a required compliance check from completing. Cancel the installation and try upgrading again."

I've wasted hours and hours on this. Microsoft wants $300 to help me, so I'm hoping that someone here can help me. Thanks in advance for all the help.

Where are the log files for this.

I upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 a few months ago. Ever since, I have experienced the desktop randomly freezing, followed by a pop-up telling me that an audio device had been unplugged and then re-plugged or, that the display had stopped working and then restarted again.
Trying to update drivers for either proved unsuccessful as Windows 10 takes over and tells me that the latest are installed.
Tempted to regress to Windows 7, but that might be silly!

Yes, I believe you can. Windows 10 is free for at least the first year from release.
You can still get the Windows 10 ISO downloade and be able to upgrade using that instead of the downloaded installation files too.

Hi , Can someone please help, since i upgrades from 8.1 to 10 my pc runs really slow.
My pc was running on 8.1 32 bit with no problems.
Can anyone please help.

A:Pc running slow after windows 10 upgrade.

Do you mean the PC is slow to boot or is slow when booted? If slow when booted, the first step would be to look at running tasks using Task Manger to identify processes having a high CPU / memory / disk load and troubleshoot accordingly.

If the PC is slow to boot, you could consider the following:

Try Autoruns and disable any start-up programs you don't need?Run SFC/SCANNOW to check for system problems?Are there any mapped network drives or mapped drives which may slow logon?

I upgraded to Win 10 about a year ago on Microsoft's free upgrade program. I get the impression that my PC is now full of all sorts of unwanted crud - it has slowed to a crawl, and no amount of scans, cleaners, etc seem to help.
I want to completely scrub the drives (I have two full data backups) and reload the OS and software. I have all the software, but am not sure that the ISO I made when upgrading to Win 10 will still work if I load it and try to activate it. I have the product ID, but I guess that is generic to Win 10 Pro, and not specific to my license. With the free upgrade program, I never of course had a Product Key. With the Free Upgrade program now over, what will happen if I reformat and reload Win 10? Will I be able to activate it?

A:Reformatting a PC that is running a free upgrade Windows 10 Pro

Yes.

Web search on "digital entitlement". Microsoft's activation servers will automatically activate new Win 10 install on the same hardware.

A:Games running slow after windows 10 upgrade

Stymir Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the problem you're up against is that Microsoft only supplies drivers with the most basic functionality, and what you really need for FULL functionality is the specialized drivers written for the specific hardware found in your HP PC -- and unfortunately, there are no HP Win10 drivers for your PC. HP only guarantees Win10 compatibility for machines made after August, 2013. HP does not have any schedule indicating when, or IF, they will be producing drivers for the older machines.This means that your PC is most likely NEVER going to be fully functional under Win10 because the drivers it needs for full functionality simply do not exist!  To restore full functionality, you would need to do a factory reset using HP Recovery Media to its original pre-installed OS. Good Luck

I just bought a Hp Pavilion dv8000 laptop off of Ebay for my son. The previous owner installed Windows 7 on it and the computer runs real slow. The mouse is jumpy and lags. Some of the letters on the keyboard does not work and I searched online and found out these are common issues for the computer with an upgrade to Windows 7. Big problem is that when they installed Windows 7 they did not create a backup drive so the computer only has the C: drive so I can not restore to factory default like I would like to do. Anyone of any suggestions for me?

As in, keep all of my files and programs? Or will Windows 7 Ultimate clean my computer of everything? Because I hear that in order to save anything, I need to move it to an external hard drive. And if that's what I have to do, what's the difference between the Upgrade version of Windows and the System Builder of Windows if they both wipe my computer clean? If the only way to save anything is to move it to another storage space?

A:I've got Windows 7 Ultimate, the upgrade edition. Can I upgrade from Windows XP?

Yes there is no direct upgrade from XP to 7.  You need to do a clean install.  You can use WIndows Easy Transfer to simplify moving your documents and settings across.  Programs need to be re-installed in 7 (the upgrade advisor will tell you of any known compatibility problems).  It's quickest and easiest using an external HDD.  Guide here.  The installer is the same for all - the difference between the different versions is in the license.  The Upgrade version will not accept your product key if you try to install it on a computer that doesn't already have an OS.  The System Builder (OEM) version is tied to the machine it's installed on - the license does not allow for it to be transferred to a new PC.  The "full" retail version can be used for upgrades or installation on a new PC.

Ignoring whether it "shows up", what happens when you set your BIOS to boot from the DVD drive first and then restart your PC with the installation disc in the DVD drive?

I have got myself into a bit of a mess.

It did so I purchased an upgrade to windows home premium. When I enter the upgrade key it says I need the current key is invalid for upgrade and that I need to phone a number. Does this mean the software I brought is useless. I didn't want to buy a disc as I had read that using a upgrade key meant everything was kept. Is there anyway I can use the software I've brought. The computer recognises the key as an upgrade one.
Thanks.

A:XP to windows 7 upgrade incompatibility issues caught by Upgrade Advis

1st, you can't upgrade from XP to Windows 7, you have to do a Clean Install which means boot the DVD and format the drive, so nothing you do to XP will have any effect.

Having said that, you can cheat

See here: Upgrade Install - XP to Windows 7

My recommendation would be to do an image backup of the XP system then do a Clean Install (with format), apply all updates then start restoring your data from the backup. All software will have to be reinstalled, it can't be copied from the backup to Win 7.

Good tutorials here:

I'm about to buy a new laptop from Costco with Win 7 Home Premium. On my old (now smashed) laptop I have a Win 7 Ultimate install. Can I just use the Ultimate serial key to do the Anytime Upgrade on the new machine? I keep reading that I need to buy an "upgrade key."

Thanks

A:Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade with non-upgrade Ultimate license?

Hi,
You will need an upgrade key to initiate the ultimate download, but if you can manage to obtain an ultimate installation cd your serial should work, also if you use this winisoutils - Windows ISO Disc Image Utilities

you can change a windows install cd (if you have one) into a universal edition one, very handy.

to answer your question an upgrade key is not the same as a serial, the upgrade key is just to download the installation while the serial activates it, and a serial from one edition will not work with a different edition.

hope this helps

A:Re: Satellite Pro A300-2C4 'Windows 7 Professional Upgrade DVD' to upgrade

Hi TKG

Upgrading from WinXP to Win7 is not supported by Toshiba nor by Microsoft.
The only possible way to upgrade (go from 1 installation with some data to Win7 and keeping your settings and data) is from WinVista SP1 or later.

So regardless of how You look at it, You need to get XP out and either begin with WinVista factory installation + any 1 million updates that were released after this, OR
you can boot up from the Win7 media directly and install clean.
The second method saves a lot of time BUT have some negative side effects - namely not all drivers and utilities will be available in the final system if installed clean.
Some packages from WinVista works well in Win7 and are for that reason expected to be in the system during the update.
Hence, if You do a clean install, they will be missing.

However, they might not cause any trouble for You if they are not there, but that is not known until You're there and can see what You are missing.
Basic functionality should be expected though (WLAN, LAN, Sound, video....so on)

So, think about what You want to do and get busy with either recovering your unit with the WinVista set, updating, and then running the Toshiba Upgrade DVD, Win 7 upgrade and finally the Toshiba upgrade DVD again, OR just install Win7 clean + adding as much as possible / needed from the Toshiba Upgrade DVD.

Good luck!

Windows 8 is an upgrade...it's the only way it comes from what I've read. So no you wont have to go back to any OS. It should upgrade over top of your existing OS, that's why it has a new product key. According to my understanding of windows 8 as it stands right now.

Bought this laptop Nov 13, tried upgrading to 8.1 but pc would not work. Took back to pc world where they rolled it back to win 8 and it was then ok. However, microsoft not supporting 8 any longer and telling me i must upgrade to 8.1 or 10. obviously I have aready tried 8.1, and hp website says that my model has not been tested for 10. Help!!

A:Windows 8, can't upgrade to win 8.1, can I safely upgrade to...

NBrooks1 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about your wanting to Upgrade to Win10 and wanted to help. The only "safe" upgrade is one you can revert back from if it goes poorly or you change your mind about it. While Microsoft tells you that there is no risk in the Win10 Upgrade, because they let you believe that you can always revert back to your original OS and setup within 30 days, the ugly fact of the matter is that the Win10 GoBack function has proven to be unreliable -- and when it fails, it can leave machines in a corrupted state -- which doesn't always happen, but it does happen often enough to be a problem and you won't get any warning in advance that it is going to trash your PC!If that is not bad enough, the Win10 Upgrade is know, in some cases, to corrupt the Recovery partition stored there by the OEM that built the original machine.  This pretty much guarantees that no HP Recovery is going to work.So, if you are determined to to the Upgrade, you need to protect yourself against the problems prior to doing that -- and the best way to do that is to make an image backup of your OS and boot partitions on an external drive or large USB stick.What I recommend is the following:1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR)2) Run MR and choose the option: "Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows" to write a full backup to an external drive or USB stick3) Use the option to create a boot USB stick or CDMy experience is that MR, when using the High Compression option, typically can compress the saved image file to about 50% of the USED space in the OS partition.  This means if you have an 80GB OS partition, and 40GB is used, MR only needs about 20GB to store the image file.I use this all the time and it typically takes less than 10 minutes to do the image backup and about the same time or less to do a restore.  Plus, MR has the option to Add a Recovery Boot Menu entry.  This allows you then to boot into WinRE, and you can then use that to do a restore -- when you can't boot into Windows!NOW, you have the means to restore a full working system from the external drive or USB stick in only a few minutes.Have fun experimenting with Win10!Good Luck

I want to install a retail copy of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on a laptop that came with OEM W7 Home Premium x64. I have dozens of applications installed and don't want to do a clean install. But when I select "Upgrade" after running the setup program (within the running Home Premium installation), I get a message that says I must exit and select Windows Anytime Upgrade which directs me to purchase a new product id. I've already purchased two copies of Ultimate and don't want another. Is it possible to do an upgrade without Anytime Upgrade? Thank you.

A:Upgrade without Windows Anytime Upgrade

Yes, you can insert the Ultimate Product Key into Anytime Upgrade and it will unlock the extra features just like an Anytime key: Windows Anytime Upgrade - How to - Windows 7 Forums

I would save a Win7 backup image first of Home Premium so you have an easy path back if you decide you want to use your Ultimate Product Key elsewhere - retail keys can migrate anywhere you want for life as long as they're only installed on one machine at a time.

Likewise save a Win7 backup image of Ultimate after it's unlocked to use in place of reinstalls so you don't have to double reinstall: Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

A:Store does not recognize my Administrator User account when attempting to upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1

You are not alone. Several have had the same problem with no resolution. I think it has something funny to do with the User Accounts. Making a second account with admin privleges doesn't work. I would try to reinstall the OS from the hidden image and try again. A Refresh like Dell tried will not do the trick, as it retains much of the data from before the Refresh; you need a clean start. Don't do anything witht the Admin Account other than let Windows set it up and set your password. All updates need to be installed before the upgrade will show in the Store. I have upgraded five Win 8 installations and have had zero problems.

We've been having some problems upgrading some Windows 7 SP1 to Windows 10.  The PCs are joined to a domain on different client networks, and when going through the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant, the error comes up and says 'Windows 10 will not run
on this PC.'  The reason it says it will not run is because the PC is going to a domain and to contact your system administrator.  Has anyone run into this problem or have any ideas on how to resolve?

I am attempting to do either an upgrade or clean install of Windows 7.  The HP laptop I have is currently running Windows Vista.  
The error message is:
Windows cannot copy files required for installation.  The files may be corrupt or missing.  Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation.

I bought the .ISO file from eKey Market for about $55.  

I've tried resetting the laptop to factory settings, and still get this error. 
I've made 2 different DVDs with the .ISO files on them.
I am using an external USB CD/DVD drive.
What is the problem?

Hey everyone, just registered ? this is my first posting.

My family just ordered a new computer from Dell recently (through a monthly payment deal with our ISP), and it's still in transit to be delivered. I just recently discovered that the OS is Windows Vista Home Basic, which apparently is non-upgradable to Windows 7. What a rip-off.

I just had some questions. What would be the best path for me to take to get Windows 7 installed on this computer? I would probably need to delete the Home Basic OS and do a clean install, right?

I'm thinking about contacting Dell and having this order canceled or refused and waiting until I can order a model with Windows 7 preinstalled, but I'm quite impatient so I'd be willing to do something that wouldn't create such a delay.

Damn, I didn't think any PCs were still being shipped with Home Basic! This sucks royally!

I attempted to upgrade my tablet running 8.1 to Windows 10. I couldn't clear enough space for the install without wiping everything I had stored, so, as instructed, I added a media card for the update. Everything installed and went through the update, but
when it began to boot with Windows 10, it failed and immediately attempted to restore 8.1. It could not find a restore point and now will not boot windows at all.  It tells me to use a recovery disc/drive, but I do not have one and cannot make one since
it won't boot up. How can I re-install windows 8.1 (or 8 or 10) without having to acquire a new key for my tablet that is less than 1 year old?  I have an installation USB made for 10, but I don't know if it will work without having to input a key, and
honestly I am not sure if the tablet will boot from usb.

I purchased my HP Pavilion a6532f in 2009 and it came preloaded with Windows Vista. It has an AMD Athlon X2 CPU, 3gb RAM, and shows that it supports 64bit OS. I plan on upgrading to 8gb of RAM, I can get this working. Since Microsoft will no longer support Vista soon, I installed Windows 7 64bit (did not upgrade since you can't do an upgrade from 32-64bit). The install completed with no glitches and installed all my drivers. My problem is with Windows Update. It never stops seaching, even after 8 hrs.  I start the "Windows update" as normal, but it never finishes searching.

A:is it possible to upgrade Windows 7 Home Premium(Trial) to Windows 7 Ultimate?

It's not possible, neither can it be made possible as the upgrade wouldn't install from a trial version, and even if it did, it would cause persistent problems.

You have to install the non-trial version as a "clean" installation on to an empty partition.
Back up all your important data first to another drive or to DVDs.
Applications will have to be re-installed once the non-trial version is up and running.

MICROSOFT HAS CONFIRMED that being a Windows 10 Insider does not guarantee a free copy of the operating system.
 
The company is using the Windows Insider programme as its biggest ever beta test for what is being billed as the final or definitive version of Windows, or Windows-as-a-service.
 
But Microsoft has made it clear that its generosity stretches only so far, and that being a beta tester is an honour in itself.
 
Windows 10 will be offered as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users when it launches later this year.
 
Windows 8 has reached end of life, and customers will need to take the free upgrade to Windows 8.1 first, which is still subject to holdouts totalling 5.88 percent of the OS market, according to this month's Netmarketshare figures.

A:Video problems after Windows 10 upgrade and subsequent rollback to Windows 7

Hi YOSHI00,
If the system works fine with an external monitor, then we could definitely suspect the LCD itself. In order to isolate the issue, turn off the system. Press and hold "D" key and Power button to turn on the system. On the LCD itself, the screen should start changing solid colors. If it does, then the LCD is fine. This is the LCD built in self test - http://dell.to/1ow1G4W
Also, turn off the system and press and hold the "fn" key and power button. It should initiate the diagnostics. If you encounter any errors, make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. 
If there is no display when you initiate either of the tests, then the LCD might have gone faulty. This is just a co-incidence and drivers would not cause the LCD to go faulty. It should work outside the OS environment. 
If there is display when you run the tests, then the LCD is fine. So, you could go to device manager and uninstall all display adapters. update the BIOS from - http://dell.to/21y0qdO and restart the system and check. If the display comes back, then download the video drivers from the same site and install the drivers.
If the system is under warranty, then contact us via Twitter - @dellcares for faster communication. If there is no warranty, then we can help with a paid service call if required.
If you wish to replace the parts yourself, then you could contact - http://www.parts-people.com/  - see direct link - http://bit.ly/1R1YE23
Lastly, your system model is not compatible to work with Win 10 - see this link - http://dell.to/1RRxqsj

A:BSOD on windows 7 after upgrade to SandyBridge [moved from Vista/ Windows 7]

Hello,

Start by removing your webcam, if possible; also, uninstall the drivers in Device Manager. If you can't remove the cam, disable it in Device Manager. One crash seemed to be caused by that.

The other crashes may or may not have been caused by the webcam. Just to make sure you are not affected by the Intel storage controller defect, see here: How to dodge the Intel Sandy Bridge recall | PC Pro blog

Also, run driver verifier: Driver Verifier - Windows 7 & Vista (BSOD-related) - Tech Support Forum

Since you did a hardware upgrade, it is a good idea to run some hardware diagnostics, in case a component is faulty.

Windows 7 and 8.1 users who have started their system today may have noticed a new update notification in the operating system's system tray area that allows them to reserve an upgrade to Microsoft's upcoming operating system Windows 10.

Microsoft Windows 10 will be offered as a free upgrade to systems running a genuine version of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, and the update notification is part of Microsoft's effort to notify users about the offer and get as many users as possible to upgrade to Windows 10.

The company pushed out several updates for Windows 7 and Windows 8 in previous months that prepare systems running those operating systems for Windows 10.

We have compiled the list of updates for Windows 7 and 8 which you may want to check out for additional information.

Common one this one but in our from internet Windows 7 drops randomly 10 Windows upgrade after access case it wasn't a driver issue - it was a DNS issue For us this problem all seems to centre around DNS Windows seems to occasionally and randomly change which network adaptor it's going to route DNS requests to For those who don't know - DNS is a system whereby a name like Google gets converted to a unique machine address such as DNS servers are external computers that provide this service If this service doesn't work properly you won't be able to browse any Windows 10 randomly drops internet access after upgrade from Windows 7 websites properly One solution if you're using WiFi is to disable your Ethernet adaptor in Windows by going into Control Panel - gt Network Connections This will force Windows to always use your WiFi connection for DNS requests So how about if you use your Local Area Connection for something else - maybe for NAS Network Attached Storage such as an external hard drive My father has such a set-up with a static IP address at each end so that he can access shared storage However for some reason Windows was asking this connection for DNS which obviously wouldn't work You can confirm this by opening a Windows command window and typing nslookup and pressing Enter If it shows the IP address of your LAN adaptor instead of the Wireless adaptor this is what's happening The fix is to go into your Local Area Network adaptor Properties same menu as shown in the picture above then go to Internet Protocol Version and click Properties then click Advanced then select the DNS tab If there are any entries in the quot DNS server addresses in order of use quot box then click on each in turn and click Remove It would be worth making a note of anything in there before you Remove them just in case Note that if you access a share on an Ethernet link by a share name e g Share xxx then you may need to change this to use the device's IP address e g share Hope this helps - it sorted out our network problems immediately as Windows then always used the only DNS server it knew about which was the WiFi one For reference this was a non-Broadcom WiFi dongle and updating all the drivers both for the WiFi and the LAN made no difference - it was definitely down to the DNS issue Good luck all Richard

Easiest is to install each with the other HD unplugged, then set preferred as first HD to boot in BIOS setup, trigger other using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key. This keeps each independent to come and go as you please.

If you don't like that method then you can install EasyBCD to Win7 to add Vista to a Win7 Dual Boot menu which will leave them independent.

hi
can anyone help. I had windows 7 32bit installed on PC have upgraded to windows 7 64bit but seem to have lost network adapter driver. Any advice would be apprecited, I have no network or internet access.

A:UPgrade from windows 7 32bit to windows 7 64 bit lost network driver

I had a similar problem when loading XP onto a laptop that had been running Vista. I didn't have the wireless network driver for it. So ...
Open System Properties.
Click on Device Manager
Scroll down to the Network Adapters section
Find the wireless card item
Double-click it
Select the Details tab
In XP, it showed a text like this. It's the unique ID for the network card.PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4229&SUBSYS_11208086&REV_61\4&6C79FC5&0&00E0
On my Win 7 box, I don't get a tangled description like that. Instead, I get plain, readable text:Intel(R) 82567V-2 Gigabit Network Connection
Either way ... google-search for that text. In my case, I found a web page at Cnet with all the necessary drivers. They had XP 32-bit, XP 64-bit, Vista 32-bit, Vista 64-bit, Win 7 32-bit, and Win 7 64-bit. They had it all. Easy.

A:Will I loose data if I upgrade from Windows XP Home to Windows XP Professional

You should be OK with an upgrade, just make sure your computer is clean before doing it. Dump the trash, do a disk cleanup, defrag the HD etc.

Like the title said, I'm getting random BSOD after upgrading to SSD and RAM.
Initially I thought it was the Intel Rapid Technology, because the system improved after I've installed. But now it still BSOD, but less frequent.

Here are my dump files and jcgriff2 files

Edit: Sorry I didn't put my CPU config, silly me.
Asus u46SV
Intel Core i5-2410M

GeForce GT 540M
OCZ Vertex 4 128GB firmware v1.5 (Latest+NEW)

A:BSOD After SSD upgrade and Ram upgrade in Laptop. Mostly IRQL errors

Welcome
Have you updated to the latest firmware for your SSD?






Quote:
STOP 0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner,
Backup tool, compatibility

STOP 0x0000004E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
Usual causes: Device driver, memory

STOP 0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM),
Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS


Suggestions:

Kaspersky does cause BSoDs. Please uninstall it and use Microsoft Security Essentials (at least to test)

Free up your start-up, keep nothing except the antivirus
→ Startup Programs - Change

Take memtest. Run for 4/5 passes
→ RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Run Disk Check for file system errors and bad sectors on it

A:Problems while attempting to upgrade from windows vista to windows 7

Im not sure about the IDE controller, I think it will work with Windows 7 but i cant be sure. I would clone the hard disk as it is now onto another hard disk of the same size, make sure thats bootable and working, then install windows 7 on Hard disk 1 (The original one) incase theres problems and you need to revert back.

For the programs:
I dont think theres a need to uninstall them, but if you want, make sure you have a copy of the installation files for those programs, save them to a external HDD and then uninstall them.
If their not uninstalled, whats the worst that can happen? If they dont launch in the new OS, then they can be uninstalled from there and then reinstalled if needed.

Please help me...

Its most definatly possible. All you will need to do is run windows setup and it will install over your home edition. You would probably be better off formatting your hardrive first. I've never installed pro over home edition but I have installed home edition over windows 98 several times. I hope you have good luck with you rinstall.

I need to know if I can buy an OEM version of windows 7 or 8 and activate using it's key, or if I can buy the full version of windows 10 which is for new installation, and use it to activate? I do NOT want to reinstall new since I have many programs I do not want to reinstall.

There is no such thing as a trial version of Windows 7. You CAN install and use Windows 7 without activating it for 30 days, and with some tweaking, extend that to 120 days -- but the running version is the full one, not a "trial" version.

Microsoft will give those who tested the next version of Windows through the Windows Insider program a free upgrade path to Windows 10 when the OS is released to manufacturing, meaning you will be able to upgrade to the final RTM version without the need of a clean install. Update: In light of the confusion caused by the ambiguity of some of Microsoft's announcements, we have posted a new article explaining Windows 10's free upgrade offer.
When this news was first revealed by Microsoft's Gabriel Aul through Twitter yesterday, there was a bit of confusion as to how the upgrade would work, with some people speculating that the free upgrade meant a free Windows 10 license, however that is not the case.

A:Windows Insiders get free upgrade path to Windows 10

Looks like they messed this up:

"Windows 10 for current users of Windows 7, Windows 8, 8.1"

From what I know (and what they wrote), only owners of Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 will be able to get the free upgrade. Owners of Windows 8 and Windows Phones 8 will have to upgrade to 8.1 to have access to that free upgrade (anyway, they can upgrade to 8.1 for free from 8).
