need to go back to w-10 from w-7
« on: October 05, 2018, 08:47:52 PM »
I restored my computer back to when new.
I went from w-7 to w-10 but when I restored it it went to w-7
which was out of the box.
I can't seem to find how to get it again. I need to get back to w-10
for the right updates.

Do you have a DVD writer, a blank DVD and or a thumbdrive? (caution anything on the thumbdrive will be erased) You need one of these to create a Windows 10 installation disk. You have to do a new install, it will not allow you to upgrade directly from Win 7. It will work basically like the original upgrade, keep all of your and should reactivate automatically after installation. If it ask for a key just skip it.

You will have to download the the Windows 10 Media installation Tool.

It is located here:
