    Anyone able to get free upgrade after deadlline expired?

    If you did, please post your local time and your timezone. Upgrade or fresh install?

    Note that we are talking here only about systems that have not been previously upgraded to Win 10 and then rolled back to Win 7 or 8.

    This is from Microsoft: Microsoft: More details on the end of 'Get Windows 10' and what's next - Windows 10 Forums

    Upgrades must be fully completed by 11:59 p.m. UTC-10 on July 29, 2016
    so local time does not matter.

    Yep, I did one yesterday :
    The time was 1:00pm UTC/GMT 30th July. That's 13 hours after the deadline.

    Microsoft have now confirmed that upgrades/clean installs with Win7/8 keys will continue to work if you select the "assistive technologies" options :

    But obviously they were still working for everybody 13 hours after the deadline

    I'll try another one in a few days time
