Hello everyone,
So I own Windows 7 Ultimate, as well as a Macbook Pro with Retina, this means that to partition and use bootcamp, the Mac insists that I have Windows 8 or later to install it on my mac. Now my problem is, I know you can get windows 10 for free if you have windows 7, however I can't install the windows 7 in the first place to upgrade to the windows 10, and because I don't have the windows 10, I can't install the windows at all on my Mac. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated, really frustrating loop I'm stuck in

You could install Windows 8, update to 8.1 and then go to W10. Or you could buy a copy of W10 retail. Is the Windows 7 Ultimate installed on a PC?
