This question already has an answer here:
I have a laptop that was shipped with Windows 7. For some reason, the PC was always extremely slow with Windows 7, so on one day of frustration I took a spare drive and installed Ubunto into it. However, even though the performance was great, we kind of missed having Windows on that PC (full MS-Office compatibility, Amazon Prime Video in HD, among other details that only work on Windows).
When I heard about the free upgrade to Windows 10, I decided to delete the Ubuntu drive and install the Insider Preview. The laptop now runs quite smoothly, better as new. However, I am wondering how the upgrade process would be in this case:
I could install the old drive and click the icon after running all the upgrades, but I have no interest on upgrading to Win10 over the old Win7 installation, it is just too full of HP-Bloatware, I want a clean install.
Is or will there be any way to get a Win10 key using the product key from Windows 7?
