Windows 10: Windows 10 upgrade deadline? Solved

    Windows 10 upgrade deadline?


    It must be getting close to the 1-year interval for W10 upgrades, and I'm not good with dates. Is it too late?

    My computer is 5 years old. Here's my experience with upgrading to 10: First, I ran the upgrader from Windows 7, and got upgraded with no trouble. There were a few problems, and I decided to back down to 7 and wait for some improvements. The reversal went smoothly, and I was happy with that.

    Subsequently I have made a few "clean" installs, one of which was successful and is now residing in a separate partition, and two of which failed with the complaint that my BIOS does not support 10. That's kind of flaky, if you ask me; ASUS told me they are working on an upgrade, but I haven't heard from them lately.

    It looks to me like my best strategy right now is to go with the upgrade process again (I really want to preserve my Win 7 stuff, and that happened very well the first time around). I'll wait a day or two to see if there are any wise words in reply to this post, and then go for it.

    Have you got a BSOD when the error appeared? And what's the size of your C partition? what were the problems you mentioned after upgrading to Win 10? could you please describe it in detail?

    Hello Eddie,

    The free upgrade to Windows 10 offer expires at the end of July 2016.

    Since the OP already upgraded to Windows 10 once, he now has a permanent digital entitlement for Windows 10 that does not expire.

    Thank you!


    That's good news, and I thank you for it. I will have a go at another install, and hopefully it will be permanent.
