My Acer laptop has been offered a free upgrade to win10 but my HP Elitebook hasn't. Both are using win7 home premium. Can anyone suggest why the difference? And how to get for the HP?
thanks

You are probably missing a Microsoft update that puts a Win 10 icon in the system tray.

Download the .bat file from HERE (https://www.uploady.com/#!/download/WomO7pMbB9w/yVp4yYLTotlrGv69) its the green button in the middle of the page.
