A quick hint if you are still feeling recalcitrant.
Make an image backup of your Windows 7 - (if you're running Windows 8 stop reading this and take up knitting).
Follow the upgrade process.
Don't bother signing up for a Microsoft Account if you don't have one.
Run the Windows 10 for an hour or so
Re-install your Windows 7 from the backup image.
Your 'machine ID' is now known to Microsoft and you can do a clean install of Windows 10 from an ISO (or an in-place upgrade if you're daring) whenever you want.

I have done this with several machines - no fuss, no serial requested.
