Default Re: Windows Defender

If the machine was originally running XP then it may not be Win 10 compatible, but having created a system image and the means to restore with it, you may still be able to get Win 10 free.

Some have inserted a Win 10 install disk or USB while in Windows Explorer and started it where it has installed Win 10 and digitally activated.

It does check to see if the machine is compatible before it does install.

You can create Win 10 install media after reading the instructions at https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...load/windows10

When using an ext. HDD for system images that already has stuff on it, test to see if they work.

To perform a repair install with a Win 7 install disk, it must include SP1.

If yours doesn't and you have a valid retail key for that install disk then you can download the ISO if it accepts the key from https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...nload/windows7
