    What ends the free update deadline...ISO download or registration?


    I've downloaded the Win10 ISO to upgrade my Win 7, but I don't want to perform the upgrade at this time. Does anyone know if the "free upgrade" is keyed to the download of the ISO, meaning I can install after the deadline without cost? Or when I install, if after the deadline, is the registration process going to require me to pay?

    That one. Downloading the ISO file by itself does nothing. Microsoft gave you a whole year to prepare for the free upgrade if you wanted to wait that long.
