    So if I want to try it out tomorrow, what do I do? Just enter license key of W7 Home and then upgrade? Or must I reformat my Laptop and reinstall from W7 Home DVD?

    Becaue my laptop is clean due ot minimal install and maybe there's no drivers for my 2016 laptop.

    Hi

    i added a W10 install link whilst you were posting..., from our sister W10 site

    Read it first

    Quick overview, based on your last post
    Basically download the Home version of W10 using the MCT tool and perform a clean install, use your W7 key when asked for and away you go

    As i said previously my Acer runs like a good'un -- drivers were NOT a problem yours will definately be in the MS repository

    Notes
    If you dont wont MS spying on you so much make it a Local install... hmmm not sure if this is still possible
    (details in tutorial)
    MS's AV is pretty good you wont need a third party option

    OH

    forgot to mention the first person you speak to will be a level 1 operator >>working to a script<< and unlikely have enough knowledge of W7 activation problems.... ask for an esculation to a senior
