A year ago Microsoft sends me a free update link for windows 10 since I have a genuine windows7 ultimate running on my HDD

At the first I made an upgrade for the windows7 on a different SSD after two months I had some problem so I made a clean installation for the windows 10 on this new SSD

Yesterday windows was download an update during this download I shut down the PC after an hour I turn it on again

I got the blue screen said you have a startup boot failure

I tried to go to safe mode with no success then I put windows10 usb to repair the system with no success after that I start the pc to have a big surprise its start on the old windows 7 which I had on the old HDD even I boot from the new SSD I try to reinstall windows 10 with no success because it says you do not have a genuine windows pleas activate your windows I try to inter the key for windows 7 it did not accept it

When I boot from the old HDD I find that I have a genuine windows

What can I do?

I suspect by now you realize that you should not stop the installation of an operating system.

 

Since this was a fresh installation I would suggest using a program like Darik's Boot and Nuke to completely overwrite the hdd/ssd, and then reinstall Windows 10 without any interruptions.

First it was not an installation

It was a regular update

Second

What about the data I have on the ssd

A year ago Microsoft sends me a free update link for windows 10 since I have a genuine windows7 ultimate.

 

1. At the first I made an upgrade for the windows7 on a different hard disk, after two months I had some problems so I made a clean installation for the windows 10 on this new hard disk.

 

2. Yesterday windows was downloaded an update, during this download I shut down the PC after an hour I turn it on again.

 

I got the blue screen said you have a startup boot failure.

3. I tried to go to safe mode with no success then I put windows10 usb in to repair the system with no success, after that I start the pc to have a big surprise, its starts the old windows 7 which I had on the old hard disk, even I boot from the new one I try to reinstall windows 10 with no success because it says you do not have a genuine windows pleas activate your windows I try to inter the key for windows 7 it did not accept it

When I boot from the old hard disk I find that I have a genuine windows

What can I do?

 

This post is a little confusing.

 

1. Were both the Windows 7 and Windows 10 done on the same hdd?

 

2. I'm guessing that you are still referring to the same hdd?

 

3. Here I get completely confused as to which hdd you are referring to. 

 

Please explain this in a manner making it plain which drive you are referring to, perhaps labeling one of them as A and the other as B.
