    I have a pirated copy of Windows 7, but used Windows Loader by Daz to make it look genuine. I have the "Upgrade to Windows 10" icon. Will Windows 10 know it's pirated and not work?

    Provided you use the Windows Loader by Daz, you will permanently be issued an official Windows 10 license upon upgrading

    I was wondering about that...

    I have a genuine system but when I built my HTPC I just used Daz; and I used Daz to upgrade my family's Vista computers. I assumed that - unless Microsoft found a way to detect Daz - it would be considered a valid license thanks to the activation hackjob they used for the free W10 upgrades.
