I saw something on Youtube recently that showed you how to install Win10 for free. It looked relatively easy and I only watched it once out of interest but it began by establishing if you had a genuine Win 7 licence and if you did, you could install it. I did consider it but have since changed my mind.

Yeah, as long as you have a valid 7/8.1 licence then 10 will accept the key. I don't think MS will ever block people from doing this, as they just want to get everybody off Windows 7/8.1.
