BEAVIS1122,,

If the win10 disc installed on your computer you could not activate it because it clearly states No Key Code.

beavis1122,

The free upgrade to Windows 10 is over. You would need to purchase Windows 10.

is there anyway i can get windows 7 or 10 on hd with having to purchase it?

maybe best to buy a cheap computer with 7 pro on it and using a clone to get it on new hd ?

BEAVIS1122,

When you install a cloned Windows OS onto a PC the operating system configures itself to that particular computer your removed it from. . Unfortunately, while cloning does create a perfect copy of your hard drive and the operating  system. It will try to compensate by installing new drivers automatically, but if it can't.. If you transfer your existing OS to a new PC, much of that hardware is going to be different – and that can be a shock to your OS. It will have drivers for certain hardware, but that hardware is gone. It will try to compensate by installing new drivers automatically, but if it can’t find the right drivers it will likely crash.

If you are thinking of purchasing another computer with Windows on it and transfer the OS. you may want to just purchase the OS and avoid all cloning the OS for another computer.

Click the link below to purchase a recovery disk for your computer to install Windows 7. Actually, the disk are pretty cheap from what I am hearing.
