Yea I'm sure during the free upgrade time it might be overlooked
But once the free upgrade is over I'm sure M$ will not allow it
M$ keeps tract of keys much better now days

Hi Brink,

So you are saying if you upgrade to Windows 10, then downgrade back to Windows 7, you can not install Windows 10 again?

I thought once you had Digital Entitlement it was good for the life of that computer? I know you can't have both Windows 10 and 7 installed at the same time. But I thought it was ok one at a time.

@Trustme, but that`s not what he wants to do, he wants to activate 10, go back to 7 then go back to 10 and have it be activated.

That won`t fly after July 29th. You do it before the the 29th or that`s it, no free upgrade.

As I`ve already said, I would never give up a Windows 7 Ultimate key for Windows 10, no way.

As Brink said you can`t even use one at a time after July 29th, as one OS will become deactivated.
