How to upgrade Win 7 32 bit to Win 10 64 Bit for Free after 29 July 2016?

How to upgrade Windows 7 32 bit to Windows 10 64 Bit for Free after 29 July 2016?


    - Free Win10 upgrade is actually closed
    - 32 Bit to 64 Bit is never a provided upgrade function from Microsoft
    - If you don t want to upgrade to 64 bit - just use the Microsoft page for "assistive technologies", which still 
      provides the FREE upgrade to Win10


-   Have a  (min) 4 GB USB stick ready
-   Download Product Key Viewer and write down product key:
-   Download ISO file to HD (function "bootable USB" will not work):
-   Download old "bootable USB from ISO" tool from Microsoft: 
-   Run this tool and select ISO from HD to create bootable USB stick
-   Reboot PC which you will update and press F2 for Bios setup
-   Goto Boot Setup and move USB to first position
-   Plug prepared USB stick and save / reboot
-   Enter Key from Key Viewer
-   keep going and select "Custom Setup" (everything will be deleted)
-   Chose Keyboard / Language
-   Windows will start setup and count up from 0% to 100%
-   IMPORTANT: when on 100% remove USB stick before Windows is rebooting -
    otherwise installation will loop  ;-)
-   Keep going with the rest of the set-up (which is very easy and straight forward)
