Windows 7 Pro migration to Windows 10 Pro

CHI-LTD asked
Last Modified: 2016-05-07

One would seem to think that Microsoft would have made life a little easier for their licencing of windows.  Clearly not.

I have been in contact with a number of suppliers regarding upgrading our Windows 7 Pro licences to Windows 10.  

Our preference is OLP.

So, I have had pricing for Windows 10 Pro licences via OLP (full product) and (upgrades).  I have also now just been told we can upgrade windows 7 to 10 for free as we have windows 7 pro olp licences.  

Is this really true and if so how does one go about licencing it (KMS/MAK), sourcing the media, using correct image/cd correctly etc etc/..
