    I did a good 1 hour plus upgrade from Windows 7 Home P 64 bit and went smoothly, but my old dv9720us Laptop has driver issues with video card in system says Windows 10 will not be compatible. Windows 10 Home for the install went fine. At they end in system had to activate Windows, which is giving me issues will not activate.

    hey !

    Just downloaded windows 10 iso file and burned it to DVD.
    I'm upgrading from 8.1 Home to Win10 Home 64bit and also i have another machine with Win 8.1 Pro, which i'll upgrade one day in the future.

    My question is, where can I find product key for Win 10 now, i just can't find it anywhere.
    Do i have to wait for an email from microsoft ?
    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks,
    Best

    I'm not getting this... I read on this forum that it's recommended to wait until you get a notification on your PC that your Windows 10 has been downloaded and ready for upgrade while at the same time, Microsoft has officially released a Windows 10 Media Creation tool to download Windows 10 and upgrade whenever possible?

    Which one is the correct statement?

    Yea, just read at ms site :

    "! Where is my upgrade? It's coming"
    "if you reserved your free upgrade, it's on the way..... watch for notification in the coming weeks"

    Did you get a notification? If not, are you able to upgrade with that downloaded ISO of Windows 10 right now? Where did you get that ISO from?

    Also, regarding your question about the Windows 10 key, I read this on Microsoft's website about clean installs:


    "Note

    If you upgraded to Windows 10 on this PC by taking advantage of the free upgrade offer and successfully activated Windows 10 on this PC in the past, you won't have a Windows 10 product key, and you can skip the product key page by selecting the Skip button. Your PC will activate online automatically so long as the same edition of Windows 10 was successfully activated on this PC by using the free Windows 10 upgrade offer. "

    Won't work if trying to do a clean install, only work if upgrading an existing Windows 7, 8.1 PC, using ISO,
    many asking on Ten Forums.
