    To be able to upgrade from an activated windows 7 sp1, to establish a valid hwid, you can use all available builds, 1511 is only needed for an upgrade from an 8.1 install with KMS activation.

    For 7 SP1>10 and get free HWID you have to make sure it's properly activated and that there are no exclamation or question marks shown in the device manager and the lan drivers are installed.

    When you have a valid win 7 key you can directly install 10 (the edition the key is for on 7) and use the key for activation.

    When you don't have a valid win 7 key, you can install windows 7 SP1 and activate it using DAZ Loader and upgrade to 10 or go the gatherosstate route.

    Or install 8.1 and activate by a KMS solution and upgrade to win 10 build 10240 or 10586 to establosh the HWID and do a clean install afterwards with the most current official build.

    To establish a hwid you need to upgrade to 10 from within the activated 7 SP1 (make sure the LAN driver is installed) or go the genuineticket.xml route .
