okay so i built my PC recently and when i went to install windows 7 via an old optical disk i had laying around, when i went to go type in the product key it said it wasn't valid and i didn't understand why so i went into windows 30 day trial and it said that the key was for upgrades only. So i took to Microsoft and they don't sell windows 7 keys anymore, then i visited Kinguin and i think there prices are too good to be true. I didn't want to install W10 because i am concerned that they spy on you but i will backup my files and install W10 if i am forced to. I also cant install W10 as im currently in W7 without a product key. So therefore would i have to backup my files, wipe my hard drive and then do a clean install? if I were to install W10.
Someone please help im kind of running out of ideas and have had bad experience with windows 10 on my laptop because its glitch and is pretty optimized compared to 7
