    Somebody please HELP!

    Really stuck now.
    i have been running 8.1 pro for a long time now but want to upgrade to 10 using the upgrade tool just gives me the error not activated !!!

    MS toolkit wont activate the damn thing i can only rearm 8.1 to keep away the activate windows message.
    Looking around i cant see a iso file for windows 10 so can anyone help me out?

    Im ready to smash this thing to oblivion

    cant you install windows 7 on it and try that route.

    the tookit I put up for a few mmbers still works, perhaps it will work with 8.1.

    im using toolkit 2.6 beta 5.
    Can you upgrade to 7 from 8.1??
    im getting errors from that unless i use the rearm function but then i cant use the windows 10 upgrade tool.

    Is your original Windows clean? If not then do you have a legit COA for Win 7? If you have neither then a SLIC modded BIOS should do the trick then use the date trick with the upgrade tool.

    The way I have done things is start a fresh with windows 7
    not downgrade from 8.1 as I don't think you can anymore

    just clear the drive and put a new version of windows 7 on
    then get the updates, change your date
    run ms toolkit 2.6
    reboot
    run the install 10 tool

    download the service packs also. there faster to install them after you have done the windows 7 one

    right...
    Install windows 7. It doesnt matter which version as long as it x64. I use premium as that iso everywhere.
    Dont bother with any of the win7 service packs as all your be doing is wasting your time ! Win10 doesn't need or use them.
    So..
    install win7 premium without Internet connection and use Daz to activate.
    Turn OFF windows7 auto updates during install as that will slow u down dramatically if win7 starts doing all that shite.
    Once u have win7 installed & activated using daz, then use the win10 roll back method to upgrade. (It still works as it used it again as of last week)

    Roll back >

    I had same sounding problem with just one machine going from 8.1 to 10 and nothing would sort it until I removed the Windows Activation Toolkit and used KMSPICO.
    Cant even remember why I tried it and never had issues with the Toolkit previously but this was the only thing that would get it to upgrade.

    Worth a try as it will take 5 mins to check.

    Can't u just clean install win x? Then use any number of activators to make it work.

    Always better to back ur files up then clean install rather than do an upgrade.

    Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and not activated?
    Use this - (uploaded to My Drive as the only official way to get this now is via Magnet Link) - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    It's Daz's official Loader fresh from his thread on MDL.

    Once installed forget all updates/upgrades and visit here on that machine

    This is the upgrade for those that require accessibility technologies... IE, On-Screen Keyboard etc... I know you really need that as we all do to qualify for a free Windows 10 upgrade!
    This will upgrade you to Windows 10 Pro (From Windows 7 Ultimate). This is still being offered to the general public after 29th July 2016 deadline to upgrade for free.

    Upgrade from there and your system will be legit and upgraded from dodgy Windows 7 to Legit Windows 10 in no time. Done it loads of times.

    Plus, you could really have just gone to the Microsoft link when you was on Windows 8.1 legit too (Oh well).
