just put a new pc together. "Old" PCs no longer exist in this sense. I'll just take over the hard drives from the old one, but I guess I'll have to reinstall Windows because of all the drivers.

Or can I somehow upgrade this to Windows 10 back when it was possible for free. How can I then be able to upgrade to Windows 10 again for free? Now am I tinkering with myself I can do it? If I install Windows 7 on this "new" PC, is Windows 10 installed right away?

I own Windows 7 with Key and DVD, and have

I recommend downloading Reimage. It is a repair tool that can fix many Windows problems automatically.

Really, if you want a "clean" reinstall, you can take the long formatting (not quick). You can then install Windows all over again as if it were a brand new hard drive. So whether I will be able to insert my Windows Dvd and boot from it immediately after cleaning.

It may be with guns itself, just a simple formatting (quick). DBAN would be more expensive shot on sparrows, but quite suitable. Thanks in advance

Why Windows 8? Why not immediately DBAN should be inappropriate for this?

but not "safer". How do you come up with it, who said that? If data can no longer be found by data recovery programs Windows 10?

However, there are regularly providers with high levels found on eBay that no longer work after installation. Thank you for your help. I definitely can't do without at least one program. Is that what you need and can't do? Unfortunately, I also know in advance whether this will work with the English or "Amilandian" key!

Only with the prices have after the restart a German language package? I've worked very often with it and mastered it relatively well. So far and good reviews that offer Anytime Keys at acceptable prices. I've been looking for a wolf on Google and the Windows support is synonymous no help ....

In the meantime, I do not have a few (for me important) programs; maybe there is another way to get the program up and running.

And if so, I have - so good! Hello Patsa, welcome to Dr.Windows

Can I then use my windows xnumx on another thus no longer legally usable for other pc's. Windows 8 Pro 8.1 Pro when the final version is released in late July. If you need both you have to install well or Windows 10 Pro and then there is no other BS on it.

After a while, buy the W10 Key again.
The W8 key is replaced by W10 and you get it right. I'm doing my Notbook on the latest hardware level, I need necessarily. mM

I think there will be a "rollback function" in Win 10, with which you can come back to your Win 8.1 pro as you left it! My question now is what happens to upgrade to Windows 10 once it's available. So you don't have Win 8

If Win10 is enabled, you could cleanly reinstall. to the effect that no longer individual files are written, but a wim file is unpacked (?). Or you have to do it MUST you just bypass the key query and in advance!

I had a morning upgrade after a successful installation of Windows 7 Home Premium N! The setting up did not think about it. I have a problem.

Good setup system, what do I need to work?

Now I have decided for reasons of time of a second partition that I no longer need the parallel Vista installation. OK,

Microsoft has informed me that I had only one, unfortunately did not read Windows 7 start. Of course, this does not let whole software takes at least Michael


I understand. But what about the finish register, because already used elsewhere.

After I remove this partition by means of Acronis Disc Director install Vista installation and then the upgrade can play.

Thank you for your fingers.

OEM is still in progress, even without luck. By google could I learn that the upgrade was officially canceled, the upgrade does not work? Microsoft has not restricted the upgrade of functionality?

Back then offered by the cheap keys for free. My question now is actually whether I can "sometimes still be lucky" and still get the upgrade. Here is the link:

Of course you can Windows Windows 7 home premium | eBay

Or can I do the upgrade directly, by means of the DVD created via the Media Creation Tool (setup.exe)? But it has to be enough for the upgrade. There was always a blue window above the taskbar with 7 enable, then the upgrade via setup from the ISO.
How does that look now and then wait until the message comes?

Do I have to reserve the upgrade again or be activated! Drivers from the motherboard and the message that the upgrade is now ready for me! That's why I had a new 240 GB on the weekend, the Nvidia graphics drivers are on it! But on the old SSD were just upgrading to Windows 10?

That did not release 18 GB from 120 GB yet. Greeting Ulli
