Windows 7/8.1 can be upgraded to Windows 10 for free

For Microsoft, they have not closed some channels for pirated Windows systems to “correct”, but although they can be updated, there are still differences.

At present, the operation of upgrading Windows 10 for free from the old version of the system is still similar to the original. Regardless of whether you are using a genuine or pirated old system, you can upgrade through the official Microsoft Windows Media Create Tool, which can be downloaded on the Microsoft website.

However, it should be noted that the current newer hardware supports Windows 7 is quite poor, and the system cannot be booted through a pure UEFI environment, so it can only use the compatibility mode, while Windows 8.1 supports UEFI boot environment and is compatible with current mainstream chips.

For those upgraded in this way, it should be noted that although technically speaking, this is almost the same as the genuine version, it is still piracy from a legal point of view.

Some experts pointed out that judging whether the system is genuine is not based on technical details, but on the legal authorization. So from this point of view, a free upgrade to Windows 10 is only a technical “whitewash”. From the perspective of Microsoft authorization, it Still not genuine.

However, some media said that Windows 10 free for one year is just a marketing talk, and Microsoft only cares about upgrading numbers. This may be the main reason why Fido can still be downloaded from official channels easily.
