    Question about a clean install of 10 down the road.

    Let's say you either installed windows 10 at least once during the free offer.

    Can you go back to Seven? Then when Jan 2020 comes along can you download a windows 10 installation and do an upgrade or clean install when windows 7 expires or will you only be able to do a clean install?
