    So is this allowed?

    Upgrade to windows 10.

    Restore image or reinstall 7 same version

    Sample setup

    Windows 7 partition 1
    Windows 10 RTM partition 2

    You would only be using one at a time.

    I read it is not easy to do by the way.

    I'll PM you a little something that will help you out.

    Let's keep things on topic, Win Droid. This is not conducive to helping us to understand our rights and responsibilities.

    You can cheat and steal from MS by violating the TOU but it's neither legal nor moral.

    Thanks for the post and explanations, Mystere. Hopefully it will help those who can't wrap their heads around the rules we've lived with for 30 years.

    Windows 8.1, 10

    Can I suggest a question without fully knowing the answer, but which maybe helpful to people who are new to Windows 10?

    It is this:

    What do I have to do on 29th July? Do I have to do anything beforehand to prepare?
    Roughly my answer would be this - I'm sure others can improve it.
    • Use the Get Windows 10 app to reserve a copy of Windows 10 if you want to be first in the queue, but be aware that you have a whole year to do this, and if you want to be cautious, there's no harm in waiting a while to let others try out the process and iron out any remaining bugs, although (and this is speculation) if you reserve just after 29 July it may not be an immediate process as the servers will be busy .
    • Take a full backup image beforehand - it shouldn't strictly be necessary, and the process will work without one but having a backup is always good and it might rescue you from some unforeseen situation which the automatic upgrade might not deal with
    • Consider not reserving straight away if you have metered or limited data connection, as the download is large and will otherwise take place in the background, possibly at a time when your data is expensive or restricted. I am speculating there may be an ISO download available which gives more control over when the upgrade is downloaded.
    • If you chose to reserve, then sometime before 29 July, the system should download automatically to your computer in the background. Be aware this is around 3GB of data to be downloaded.
    • When 29 July comes around, you should receive a notification asking if you want to upgrade now or later. {I'm not clear yet how the installation process will work or how long it will take - hopefully there will be more information nearer the time?}

    While that is good information, I really created this FAQ to deal with the confusion around the upgrade offer and licensing. I'd rather not complicate it with things that are only tangentially related. Maybe you can create a new thread
