    Just download the upgrade tool from here.

    Choose "Upgrade this PC now" when you run it.

    You are going to need the product key from your copy of Windows 7 or 8. I can tell you that when I did the upgrade from Windows 7 to 10, it asked for my product key from my copy of Windows 7 during the install. Not sure about the process a pc uses to install the upgrade as I do not personally own a pc. I can only think that when Microsoft sent him the invite to upgrade, it checked to see that he had a legit license for Windows on his pc and then continued to send him the upgrade.

    Hi,

    No it shouldn't ask for a product key as long as you have a legit activated copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.
