    Hi,

    So, I have an old Asus laptop in pretty good shape and it's running a pirated copy of Windows 10 Enterprise on it (courtesty of a local PC store). However, it's now requesting genuine activation in the right-hand corner of the home screen.

    It was originally an official windows 7 license so I'm wondering if I can roll it back to the original OS (I saw an option in the settings to do this), and then upgrade it to an official Windows 10 home OS, does anyone know if the free Windows 10 upgrades are still available?

    All advice greatly appreciated

    DG

    I'll send you a message later on this day. Not a big issue. Go for the Pro version.

    P.S. The "free upgrades are gone since a few months. Some people say there's a trick by setting the time back.

    I'll let you know soon.

    Please check your inbox. I've spent more than an hour and couldn't send you a message. Then all was gone.

    Best of luck. Please report back. Cheers- M.

    Here's what it should look like when using the "RUFUS tool" and a memory drive to do a W 10 pro setup. I could theoretically make 1,000 + setups and leave the CD key option out.

    The 5 GB version lets you choose 32, or 64 bit, what language and and and...

    Please page me when you lost the link. Cheers-
