    We know that M$ will guarantee the right digital license until next Friday but we have a very big demand to upgrade older systems and back again the same ONLY to ensure that license.
    My question is there any possibility of ensuring that digital license WITHOUT upgrade Windows now?
    A program, application, or anything that deceives Microsoft and tell that the machine was upgraded without even having been just to not lose the right to upgrade in the future...
    If anyone knows , please help us in this endeavor!

    Thanks!

    Does that mean i can use gatherosstate on my Win7 machines now and upgrade to Win10 after 29th July 2016???
    Does this still work if i change my HDD to a SSD?
    Is the HDD not involved in the HWID? What´s with computer with more than one HDD?

    Afaik, the ticket has to be used before the free offer ends, you can do it using a spare hdd with 10 on it.

    Since RS1 gives you the option to link your system's HWID to your MSA, changing hardware won't be a problem anymore. When the normal HWID activation doesn't work you can use the activation troubleshooter and use your MSA.

    Too bad. Lots of work to update as many computers as possible till end of friday.
    Maybe i get 11 hours more through different time zone (9 hours) and daylight saving (GMT +2)? ;)

    Hmmm... four Notebooks, at least five desktop computers...
    There is also one Netbook (is Win7 starter qualified for upgrade?) and one Nettop with W7 home (but no clue how to get this apart for changing HDD). Then there are three tablets laying around running Win8.1. But i guess there are no drivers for these in Win10. :(

    Afaik it will stop fridaynight 00:00 redmond time, but as daz just said in the chat, maybe they will be running the upgrade servers for a few days longer in case they get problems because many users will upgrade at last minute.

    An easy way create Windows to Go USB one or more with the correct Windows Upgrade like 7 Pro/Ultimate or Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 10 Pro Th2 April update anything else will be Windows 10 Home Th2 April update. Boot these machines from Windows to Go USB. once it boots correctly Activate that USB using the corresponding Windows key. This way you reseved your digital rights for Windows 10 for that PC. Now shutdown PC remove USB & power up it will run the existing OS. Now use the same Windows to Go USB on another PC & activate with a new key Whenever you decide to upgrade to Windows 10 your PC will be activated with the corresponding Windows edition.
    PS: This method works if you have Genuine Windows 7 or 8.1 Keys

    yes you can
    use a tool called WinToUSB. You can find by google & download the free version. using USB 3 will make your task much faster.
    wishing you best of luck

    WinToUSB fails on my system. I tried with 32GB USB pen drive and 1TB HDD.
    It creates a foldeer structure and writes about 150MB of 0kB files onto the disk. Progress is shown as zero percent since four hours.
    I don´t think there is any further progress. :(

    Upgraded first notebook.
    I got code 0x803F7001 and under activation it reads: windows activation servers not reachable. :(
    My internet connection is working fine.
