Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 7

I have build a new PC and I want to install Windows 10 on it. I already have Windows 7 Home Basic running on it. I want to know whether I could upgrade my Windows to Windows 10 Home or not and also I want to keep my files. Is it possible to upgrade it with the media creation tool from Microsoft.

Please tell me fast.

Thank you

RE: Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 7

If the 7 copy came from a Dell system, you will need to purchase a license for Windows 10 -- you can't transfer an OEM license to a new system.

RE: Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 7

The option for "free" upgrades to Win 10 ended last July. So either way, you're going to need to buy a new license from MS to run Win 10.

BTW: This is Dell's forum, so why do you keep posting non-Dell questions here?
