Re: I feel left out....

Windows 7 and greater knows when it is running in a VM.

The GWX software must detect that VM and not allow the upgrade.

It is possible to 'get around' this ........ :)

Google 'SLIC' and think outside the box. :)

As a 1st option go to --> https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/windows-10-upgrade?ocid=win10_wol_banner_upgrade

Click the download now button.

It will download 'GetWindows10-Web_Default_Attr.exe'

This should perform the 'Upgrade' to Win 10.

I do not know if this will also not work in a VM, try it and see!!!
