    So now that W10 is out on july 29, how do owners of a copy of W7 upgrade their MBP15 to windows 10? W7 cannot be installed on MBP15 (at least not via bootcamp).

    You go to Windows 8.1 first then.

    Or, you could just install Windows 7 as a VM, upgrade it from the VM and obtain the key, then install Windows 10 in Boot Camp and use the key you obtained.

    Buying 8.1 defeats the purpose of the free upgrade...why not buying directly W10 then?

    I m not sure that as part of the upgrade you get a new key that can be used in the standalone version
