What Version Of Windows 10 Will We Get?

Microsoft will be offering like-to-like upgrades. Well, more or less, since there are fewer Windows 10 editions, compared to Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Windows 10 Editions based on Windows 7 Editions

“N” and “KN” editions follow the upgrade path of the parent edition (e.g., Windows 7 Professional N upgrades to Windows 10 Pro N).

Windows 10 Editions based on Windows 8 Editions

Some editions are excluded: Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise, and Windows RT/RT 8.1. Active Software Assurance customers in volume licensing have the benefit to upgrade to Windows 10 enterprise offerings outside of this offer.

Can I Perform A Fresh Installation Of Windows 10 After The Upgrade?

After you upgrade to Windows 10 using the free upgrade offer, you will be allowed to reinstall Windows 10, including performing a clean install. You will also be able to create your own installation media using a USB flash drive or a DVD for the reinstallation.

However, you can only perform the reinstallation on the same device on which the upgrade was performed earlier.

You Can't Reserve Your Free Upgrade?

If you haven't received the Get Windows 10 notification yet, something is definitely wrong. Please check to make sure that :

  1. If you are running on Windows 7, it should be upgraded to Windows 7 SP1.

  2. If you are running on Windows 8, it should be upgraded to Windows 8.1.

  3. You have already downloaded and installed the latest Windows updates (via Windows Update).

  4. You did not block or uninstall any necessary updates for Windows Updates to work properly.

  5. Your PC does not meet the minimum requirements to run Windows 10.

  6. You are using genuine Windows.

To fix the first four issues, just run Windows Update manually and install all available updates. PCs that do not meet the Windows 10 minimum requirements will not display the Get Windows 10 notification until after the 29th of July, 2015.

If you are sure that you are using genuine Windows, your device may not qualify for the free upgrade if your PC was purchased or managed by an educational or corporate entity. Those using Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise, or Windows RT/RT 8.1 will not qualify for the free upgrade.
