I'm eyeing an inexpensive Notebook that comes with Win 8.1 shipped. I know the free Win 10 Upgrade ship has long since sailed, but has anyone recently tried to install 10 using an 8.1 product activation code? I'd hate to spend $125 on the Notebook just to drop another $100 to get rid of 8.1.

"Customers who use assistive technologies" can still get it for free through Microsoft, but you don't actually have to use any assistive technologies to download and install it. I have installed and activated it successfully on an 8.1 desktop.

If you're still on W7... this upgrade works.

Re: Windows 9+1 Thread

Creators Update out April 11th. You can manually install it on the 5th.

If you hate Windows and Windows 10, you can probably make your own OS for 1/5th the cost.
