Can You Still Upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10?

Microsoft has now officially ended support for Windows 7. Continuing to run Windows 7 on your computer means that you are vulnerable to security risks, viruses and you will no longer receive updates for your operating system. Microsoft wants Windows 7 users to either purchase a full license of Windows 10 or purchase a new computer with Windows 10 already installed on it. According to rumours, the activation server is still running that would allow Windows 7 users to upgrade to Windows 10 for free for one year after the launch of Windows 10. In this video tutorial, I test that theory out and see if I can upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and complete product activation.

Disclaimer: I'm going through this process for purely educational and entertainment purposes only. The main laptop that I use day to day runs an entirely legitimate copy of Windows 10 that came with my PC. If you decide to follow these steps in the video on your own Windows 7 PC, you do so at your own risk.
