I installed the Tech Preview and registered as an Insider early on and largely rode the updates/releases when published, until build 10240. I sat on this build for a while (disabled the Windows Update service) and didn't do much with this preview...
If I upgrade my desktop computer now from 8.1 to 10, and in a year or so have to reformat my HDD, what will I have to do to reinstall 10? Will I have to install 8.1 and then pay to upgrade to 10? Will I be able to reformat and then reinstall 10 for...
I would like to know if there's any difference between upgrading via Windows Update and via ISO (pro and cons).
I'm not trying to make a clean installation at the moment.
Windows won't let me update windows 7 unless I'm installing 10, which is downloaded. I changed my mind because of the stuff I'll have to pay to upgrade and a program that I use daily but won't exist in Windows 10. How do I just remove it?
I read lots of mail on how the Upgrade is FREE, but nowhere do I see anything
about the cost (or no cost) of Windows 10 Updates.
Is that policy spelled out anywhere of do I just wait and hope ??
