Windows 7: Win 10 upgrade on Win 7 volume (site?) license install?

Win 10 upgrade on Win 7 volume (site?) license install?

Hello all,

I should first mention that I am a XP fanatic, have 4 computers, 1 desktop with xp pro, 1 laptop with xp, one desktop (this one) with win 7, and one desktop with win 8.1. Of those 4 puters only 8.1 has the (free) Win 10 notification. My problem is I can't get the win 10 notification on this 7 install, and I suspect that's because of one of 2 or 3 reasons, itemized below. And BTW I want to install win 10 on 7 instead of 8 as a test because I don't want to mess up 8.1 before I know how good (or bad) 10 is for me, so I want to use 7 as a guinea pig first. I have spent too much time and effort getting 8.1 to look and act like XP. I never actually wanted 7 or 8 but since M$oft forced everyone and stopped supporting XP it seems I have to get around M$oft somehow, or else go to linux (which I am actually using on another HD).

(1) My 7 install is a copy (DVD burn) of a school M$oft Win 7 system grant and the 7 copy won't allow 7 activation (???)
(2) I am networking all 4 computers of which 8 is the host and the other 3 puters are clients, so win 10 can't be "shared" with networked puters (???)

I have been unable to formally activate my win 7 copy install even though it works fine and has all updates, the same as any activated M$oft windows does. However in spite of the functionality of the 7 copy install I can still get the warning that this copy of windows is not genuine. I delete that irritation by using SLMGR -REARM. Of course that's only a temporary fix for the error message but at least it removes the irritation while I'm using 7 which is otherwise completely functional.

Now to recap, it's my belief that win 7 should be eligible for the win 10 (free) upgrade because obviously the windows 7 school issue (site or volume license?) is genuine from M$oft, but if my 7 copy install is permanently invalidated because of the reasons I gave above, it should be able to be "fixed" so it becomes eligible for the win 10 free upgrade and I could then use it for my guinea pig.

Am I wrong, and/or does anyone know how to "fix" this win 7 copy install in my particular circumstances, or it that in fact not possible, and if not why?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I doubt there is any shortcuts to genuine copy of 7
I wonder if you even have sp1 on the 7
I'd contact the school on how to get the install genuine

Or just buy a oem/ system builders copy and enter that activation key they are still pretty cheap on Newegg/.. less than win-10 pro but similar priced as 10 Home version that is about
10 Pro for

Hi ThrashZone, and thanks for the response. Shortcuts to genuine copy of 7? I guess I'm not understanding the use of terms, because why would I need a shortcut when I already have a genuine copy of 7, which comes from the school that M$oft gave it to?

Yes I do have sp1, cause as I said I downloaded all updates without any problem, and this "copy" of 7 works like any activated copy does, except it does not seem to know it's genuine which is why apparently, it keeps saying it needs to be activated, but won't activate. Anyway, as for sp1 it shows in system properties.

So I still think there must be a code that identifies 7 as genuine (because it is) and/or changes the wrong code(s) that disqualifies activation, because I'm getting error code 0x8007232B that is supposed to mean the DNS name does not exist. I've tried everything suggested on the web to fix that so called error but nothing works. I'm not even sure why I can't activate because I shouldn't have to anyway. I didn't have to with a different school copy of XP (Home) which is working fine on the laptop.

BTW this 7 copy is 32 bit, not 64. Would that make a difference? I don't think I can install 64 bit 7 (school) which DVD burn I also have, because I don't think this Dell has a good enough CPU for 64 bit.

You don't need to "get" or worry about the notification thing.

You can bypass/ignore it and instead just download the Win 10 ISO and get it on a USB stick or burn it to a DVD and then install from that.

You have to do an "upgrade install" over an ACTIVATED existing install. If that is successful and itself activated, you can then do a "clean install" if you prefer a clean install.

But you have to resolve the activation issues, if any, on current machines first--otherwise I don't think you are going to get very far in getting Win 10 activated.

Yes ignatzatsonic, that makes sense. But that still leaves me with the activation which evidently I can't do (don't know why...see my "error" data I posted earlier (DNS name does not exist), and I'm not sure that's the only error I may or may not get even if the DNS name issue is resolved. Please see what I already posted for ThrashZone (code data). I'm now waiting for further analysis. Do you have any input or comment for that data yourself?

I'm guessing this version of 7 activated through the dns at the school and if your not attending it breaks.
Pretty much why I said contact the school for advice ?

OK, that makes sense, except that I didn't need to "attend" for xp pro (64 bit also from the school) previously. Is this your final advice or are you still waiting for someone else to look at the logs?

At this point I should add that I am a virtual part of the school administration but also use personal computers at home that have the authorized school software installed.
