Windows 7: Upgrade from Win 7 pro to Win 10

Upgrade from Win 7 pro to Win 10

I have a new ASUS laptop, bought with Win 7 pro pre-installed (although shipped from Asus with Win 8.1).

It is not receiving the Win 10 "upgrade" and I am advised to use the recovery disks supplied with the laptop.

Is there an instruction sheet I can download which explains how to put Win 8.1 back on this laptop? - I have 3 disks:
1.Recovery Media for Win 8.1 - marked Boot DVD Disc 15091-2190000 N5799 V1.0

2. A two pack CD set - marked Recovery Media for Win 8.1 - Recovery DVD 1 of 2 15091-202D0000 N5650 V1.0 and then disc 2 of 2.

How do i use these, and which comes first. OR is there a preinstalled partition which recovers to Win 8.1 ?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Review this and post a screen shot,
Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

I would remove the hdd or ssd and install a new if you intend on reinstalling win-8 with the supplied disks so your 7 install is unaffected from the upgrade to 10 or reinstall of 8

You can also do a reliable system image if you don't a clean install media for win-7
