    Hello,

    I don't know if this has been asked previously, but what will be the modus operandi for converting a windows 7 installation to windows 10 once the latter hits the market?

    Will there be a kind of key conversion webpage or will we have to go through windows update ? HAven't seen anything official from MS on the topic.

    Thanks a bunch

    No need to convert @ the moment the keys just working but for the future what will Microsoft do we just have to wait and see ;)

    Thanks for confirming lack of info - not interested in the technical preview at the moment but will update when it is officially released.

    Micro$oft will probably want you to do a full upgrade one time so that the OS itself will convert your Key to Windows 10 so anytime after that you can fresh install when you want, The 7/8.1 key upgrade for windows 10 is still foggy but most people say you need a day one upgrade from 7-10

    Thanks d1glow.

    I have a bunch of win7 keys from a former technet account, looks like I won't be able to convert those then if the conversion is a 1-time thing.
