    Is it still possible to upgrade Win 7/8 with KMS activation to 10 and get the digital activation?

    Tried 2 methods:
    Win 7/8 and Daz, Microsoft Toolkit or KMSPico activation and Assistive Tools upgrade (creators edition install) and
    Win 7/8 and Microsoft Toolkit with Daz, Microsoft Toolkit or KMSPico activation and copying the genuineticket after clean install (anniversary update install)

    No method has worked, all giving activation error due to blacklisted keys.

    Any other ideas?

    Unless I've missed something, the daz/clean install windows 7/genuineticket.xml/Windows 10 1607 method still works. Haven't tried it with RS2 Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I just installed Windows 7 on a laptop yesterday with and used Daz to activate. Right now it's installing 10 assistive version. I tried using a usb drive earlier this morning but that didn't work so I'm doing the on line upgrade and so far it's still installing
    M$ isn't telling me which edition, I'll find out after the install

    This Toshiba laptop started out with Vista on it, needed an o.s. upgrade so I put Windows 7 home premium on it. I Installed Daz to activate, updated windows last night and this a.m. I got 10 on it. FedEx is supposed to be here this afternoon to deliver a SSD for this laptop. I'm going to use macrium reflect to clone over to the SSD
    Yes... 10 is activated

    Whats wrong with just clean installing Windows 10 and using an unblocked windows 7 or 8 key to activate? Microsoft allows this.

    I don't think you can do that if you activate with Daz. Daz only enables OEM generic key used by the OEM's in the boot process, sure it's a legal key but I don't think M$ is going to accept that key if you try to use it to activate a clean windows 10 install, But you can "Upgrade" to 10 if you used Daz to activate windows 7

    How bout this one I can't figure out. I got a friends Win 7 Asus laptop last night. Never had anything on it but the original OEM Win 7. I wiped it out and installed 10 Home and was going to activate with the oem serial on bottom of laptop but there was no need to...I went into system info and it was activated. How can this be? I do this stuff all the time and never seen this?????

    I helped a friend to do an upgrade yesterday and it went flawlessly. I used the ' Assistive Upgrade Tool' from the Microsoft website and it activated after completing the installation.
