Windows 10: Upgrade to Win 10 - Go Back to Win 7 Question Solved

    Upgrade to Win 10 - Go Back to Win 7 Question


    I had set up a dual boot with Win 7 and clean install of Win 10, with Win 10 on a separate SSD. Never registered Win 10.

    I removed the Win 10 SSD from my case. Went back to single boot Win 7.

    Now my question is...

    Would there be a problem (with Microsoft) if I upgrade 7 to 10 and register it, go back to 7 within 30 days, then upgrade back to 10?

    Thank you in advance!

    As long as you have upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 and activated, your Win 10 is digital entitled.
    You can go back to Win 7 afterwards and then return to Win 10. There won't be any problem. Activation is still automatic.
