    Friends i want to ask a question , Can I install the windows 7 with Oem key and upgrade it to windows 8/8.1 or 10 for free ?
    If yes then where do I find the installation media for windows 7?
    Did windows 8/8.1 media creation .iso will accept the Oem key of Windows 7 ?

    You really should not hijack someone else's thread -- as the original question here pertains to Windows 8 and your question is about Windows 7. You should start your own thread, instead.
