Install Windows 10 in Nov 2016

The free upgrade period ended in July 2016. In order to test a specific hardware environment an immediate Windows 10 installation was required.
The media creation tool has been downloaded as ISO and burned to a DVD. Since Windows 7 and Windows 10 need to run in parallel, the partition size of the Windows 7 partition has been decreased before installation. Windows 10 has been installed to the empty space. During installation the option “no product key” has been selected and Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit selected as system to be installed. It was possible to use Windows 10 without any request for activation on the first day. This will probably change in the near future.
