    Do not understand nothing, or maybe only the fact, that you did not receive a Windows 10 automatic?
    But why and what You did then - used Media Creation Tool?
    It works absolutely perfectly.

    I don't know why I didn't receive the upgrade notification.I went through the checklist and then downloaded MCT.

    and Media Creation Tool seems to be working so far. slowly.

    Apply this registry and check updates. (No need to install Windows 7/8.* updates, simply upgrade.)

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
    "AllowOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001
    [Note]
    If you hide new 10240.16393.150909-1450.th1_refresh edition, and check updates again, it will show old 10240.16384.150709-1700.th1.

    If you ran the tool and checked check for updates so the install runs smoothly, don't. As long as win 7 or 8.1 is activated, just download the win 10 ISO and save it, place it in a folder on desktop and extract the ISO and run the setup.exe which will upgrade your OS to win 10.


    An upgrade will save your personal data and programs, if you don't care and will clean install sometime, just save what you want, and burn the ISO to a flash drive/DVD. Follow the upgrade trick under upgrade problems 1aa here.

    This will allow you to skip the upgrade and clean install. - here

    I did see that and was thinking about it. I might still do a clean install. Just wanted to try official MS solution.

    Whether you have a genuine activated OS or injected one, this is how windows 10 checks the OS to see if it's activated and allows upgrade.

    You are only skipping the upgrade and clean installing, you're using the same MS ticket that checks the activation using upgrade, so the trick just saves the info and allows a clean install. Still officially activated.

    Welcome back means that the upgrade has been successfully completed. Ask piercekalton. But the upgrade looks like a long journey.

    I understand I just meant I was trying their "solution" to the "Get windows 10" notification not showing up

    The only "problem" I have now is that it's Windows 10 Home because it was Windows 7 Home Premium.

    I guess the only solution to that is Enterprise KMS? Or clean install Win 7 higher version, get the ticket, then clean install Win 10?

    edit: what does injected mean? the Daz Loader solution?

    Yes, well Media Creation Tool is a small file, so I'm guessing that "Getting updates" for 3-4 hours it was downloading the OS. Then it was "Copying files" for 1-2 hours.

    I wondered your old system is not update to date, especially Windows 7. And you checked updates when upgrade.

    Now you are on Windows 10 Home. To get free Pro:

    1. Create another partition about 25-30 Gb, e.g. X:
    2. Mount Windows 8.1 Pro ISO, and apply it to X:\
    3. Run Command Prompt (Admin), and run the command to add Windows 8 Boot item
    Code:
    bcdboot X:\Windows /addlast
    4. Restart to install Windows 8.1
    5. Upon completion of installation, at first login, do no accept free upgrade offer
    6. Do not check updates
    7. Activate Windows 8.1 with KMS tool and restart
    8. Check if activated by
    Code:
    cscript slmgr.vbs /xpr
    9. if activated, copy gatherosstate.exe in Windows 10 ISO\sources\ to C:\
    10. Double-click on C:\gatherosstate.exe, and there will be a GenuineTicket.xml generated at C:\
    11. Restart to Windows 10 Home
    12. Unhidden folder, and copy Windows 8.1 GenuineTicket.xml into C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\ClipSVC\GenuineTicket
    13. Run Command Prompt (Admin), and run the command to set Windows 10 as default Boot item
    Code:
    bcdboot C:\Windows
    14. Copy QJNXR-YD97Q-K7WH4-RYWQ8-6MT6Y, and go to change key and upgrade to Windows 10 Pro

    Settings > Update and security > Activation > Change Product key > Paste QJNXR-YD97Q-K7WH4-RYWQ8-6MT6Y > Start upgrade

    15. Restart
    16. Run Command Prompt (Admin), and run the command to activate
    Code:
    cscript slmgr.vbs /ato
    17. Once activated, run the command to change genuine Volume:MAK key to Retail and activate again.
    Code:
    cscript slmgr.vbs /ipk VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T
    Code:
    cscript slmgr.vbs /ato
    [Note]
    If disk space is not enough for a new partition, please clean up Windows.old by disk cleaner from Control Panel.


    Good luck

    Injected, yes Daz.

    If you didn't buy win 7 or 8, there's no reason to go through the mess. Clean install win 10 pro and use KMS, this will change it to a VL pro, or you can use Enterprise. If you bought 7 home, then do the same and KMS win 10 pro.

    Or you can install 7 pro or Ulti, activate with Daz, then do ticket, then clean install 10 pro.

    Xinso also posted a way.
