    Is it activated?

    If yes, see here for how to use the Media Creation Toll to install the Win 10 upgrade: Windows 10 - Upgrade Installation

    Curious, why are you asking about upgrading a Windows 7 computer to Windows 10 in a Windows 8 forum?
    Both eightforums and tenforums exist? Just curious
