Bought HP laptop with free upgrade to Win 10. Did a system restore which restored to 8.1.

HP 14-bw000 Laptop PC
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Is there a way to get the Windows 10 upgrade that was bundle with the new laptop?  Microsoft has discontinued that program but I purchased the laptop with the assumtion I would always be able to keep the Win 10

Hi:

 

You should be able to upgrade back to W10 for free since the notebook was previously upgraded to W10.

 

Click on the Update now button at the link below.

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

When you get to the part of the installation script where you are asked to enter a product key, select the I don't have a product key' option (Skip), and W10 will install and automatically reactivate once you are connected to the internet.

 

If you need any W10 drivers or software, you can get those from your notebook's support page.
