Were microsoft lying?

6 posts in this topic

In many reports I read, including from microsoft website, I was led to believe that non genuine or "pirated" copies of windows 7 would still be upgraded to windows 10 but remain in their non genuine state.

However it has not been the case when I tried it, during the install I am asked to enter a product key.

It makes me wonder if they simply lied to fool non genuine users.

Looks to me then that is might not have been an outright lie, just some deliberate misleading information.

No sweat, was just for my VM.

EDIT: for the record, I just put in a key I found and it has gone past the key screen and is checking for updates.

Everything I read said that only genuine and up to date installs of Win7 would be offered to upgrade to 10 for free.

honestly,  would do them well to allow everyone an upgrade pirated or not. In the end,  you want people on your platform,  so you can offer them your other services and products.
