Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

Open Parallels and boot Windows 7. While Windows is open, click on Actions menu at the top bar and do you see "Upgrade to Windows 10" option. See this picture --> http://kb.parallels.com/Attachments/kcs-36831/Screen%20Shot%202015-08-20%20at%2004.58.21.png

If not, download the Windows upgrade tool on Parallels, open it and follow the onscreen instructions to upgrade.

On Windows, go to this website --> https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/software-download/windows10

If the above tools doesn't work, then download the following tools below (on Windows)
