Windows 10: What ends the free update deadline...ISO download or registration?
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.
I have just been asked an interesting question, and I could not answer for sure.
Suppose you are running 8.1, then upgrade, and rollback in the free period.
We all know that establishes a digital licence.
We also know we can clean install...
Here’s what happens after the July 29th free Windows 10 offer ends
my friend is unsure if he wants Windows 10 or not...he currently has XP. It has passed the Windows 8 compatability test, so will accept Windows 10. If I install Windows 7 pro as a clean install, then upgrade to Windows 10....but after the 30...
This is my first time here and couldn't find an answer after a few minutes of searching. Sorry if this has been asked already...
Anyway, I have an HP laptop that came with windows 8 and has a ~20Gb recovery partition that re-installs...
