Thank you for contacting us in regards to your question.

No, Microsoft stopped giving free upgrades to Windows 10.

Thank you and have a nice day!

Incorrect.

It is widely known that you can still get the free upgrades simply using any Windows 7 key. I have also done and have had friends do the upgrades as late as last week.

Don't see that, care to link? Think you may be confusing it with a different spec'd model?

Or if need be, just hop on eBay and grab any one of the numerous Windows 10 Pro keys selling for ~$5.

I've done that with 4 different PC's in the last year, zero issues.

I upgraded an old desktop with Win 7 to Win 10 with the installer download link from Microsoft's website, everything went well with the install and I removed a Symantec third party antivirus as advised, I used Win 10 for a few minutes to see the different features and then I clicked on Malwarebytes icon and system shut down.

When it went into the boot sequence it kept indicating "no operating system found" and it would never boot up after several attempts, I tried several different settings in the bios but it kept coming back to " no operating system.... check hdd cable" something like that.
I googled all this and it said to check the cable that goes to the hard drive, hard drive was fine before upgrade to Win 10.

What did I do wrong?
Can I get system back?

Waited too long and the price went up. Set a price alert.

Strange that I never found that model on the Lenovo website so I can't see how many DIMM slots total and how many filled to get 8GB. It could be the product is filled with 2GB DIMM making it expensive to upgrade RAM. And IS the RAM expensive like ECC.

Looking to keep it Win 7 only. Anyone use/purchase this model?

My pleasure. IBM had excellent documentation and it followed the Think products to Lenovo.

If you're watching this computer you'll know it went up and down in price and now is $150, $10 more than the original posting.

If anyone bought one can you tell how the 4 RAM slots are populated. Or maybe the other M82 with smaller HDD and less RAM, Item#: N82E16883998062 ($135).

Trying to get answers from Newegg is next to impossible.

Thanks.
