Upgrade to Windows 10

Tue 8 Nov, 2022 12:22 pm
I was running Windows 7 Professional on my PC. The disk looked like it might fail someday soon, so I bought an SSD and gave it to a shop to replace the old drive.

The shop said that the old drive was in too poor shaped to clone it to the new SSD, so he is installing Windows 10 on my machine and will copy my personal folders over.

Previously, when I upgraded to a newer version of Windows, it was important for me to keep the Windows disks around in case a repair were someday required, but when I asked him if I were in essence buying an upgrade kit, he said no, that Windows 10 could repair itself and I didn't need to have my own Windows 10 disk. What was he talking about and was he right?

Windows 10 can be installed or repaired directly from secure Microsoft servers over the internet.

All you really need to have locally is a valid Windows 10 license code on your computer. I would make sure to always have the code for a valid Windows 10 license on hand in case you need to re-input it.

Your old valid Windows 7 license could also be a valid Windows 10 license. I'd bet that it probably is. But I didn't double check to verify that.
