I got 2 Family Packs of Win 7 Home premium. I know I used all 3 on pack
1 and think I still have one left on Pack 2.
I saw a link on Google to download the Win 7 iso from MS. (I already got
them much earlier though).
They want the install code before allowing a download.
Guess what? Neither Family pack numbers were "Valid".
MS really wants us ALL on Win 10. Not necessarily me.
I did update my 5-6 yr old Acer to Win 10 in 2016. I quickly saved an
THEN I restored a Win 7 image created right before the update.
My new HP AIO is Win 10 and I will not attempt to put Win 7 on it.
Mostly, Win 10 is curbed so less invasive. I know I CAN use Version 3
IFL to do a restore as well. That is useful info.

Hope you're keeping well.
I had a similar experience a few days ago. I tried to load an Office
2010 and was told that I needed to reactivate. It was reunactivatable.
2 mins later after using System Restore (SR) and all was well again
without a further peep.
I really like SR as it can deal with so many little things like this
in a minute or so.
