EaseUS System GoBack Free: Downgrade from Windows 10

Windows 10 also provides a built-in option to rollback Windows 10. If you carried out an in-place upgrade of your Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 operating system, you can rollback from Windows 10 to your previous version of Windows, provided you carry put the rollback operation, within 30 days of upgrading to Windows 10.

W7 Pro x64 SP1 | W10 Pro IP x64 | W8.1 Pro x64 VM | Linux Mint VM

Updating to 10 from 7 should not block out the original 7 key. A clean install of 7 should work perfectly to write over 10, it's still a valid OS with a valid licence and product key and the upgraded licence of W10 will have been removed. I'll test it in a VM as soon as I get the chance with one of my spare keys, it's only an OEM key and you can still pick them up cheap.

You don't have to sign into 10 with an MS account either, you can use a local account.

I've always thought this is why they are trying so hard to move their business model to subscription monthly rental.
Yes, of course. There is no legal way to prevent a secondary market if you sell products. Any attempt to do so is restraint of trade. Moving consumers to a rental/subscription base evades that.

There are a couple of things going on in that statement:

1) Any civilised country will not allow restraint of trade. Buying an item transfers the right of distribution to the buyer, that is why we have secondary markets for just about everything. It is essential for market based economies.

2) In the unlikely event some peculiar country does allow a eula to overturn that basic principle, it will be thwarted by the preceding sale.

Windows 7/64 HPremium.

My current Windows 7 o/s is genuine full retail Home Premium. I also have an unused OEM of 7 Pro, which I was going to use an another system I built for a friend a couple of years ago. He actually bought a full retail copy of his own and I kept the OEM disc, which is genuine 7/64 Pro.

I had a plan to install the OEM as a clean install on my system and retain the HP for safety after I upgrade to 10. However, after reading all this MicroSoft skullduggery, I will stay with 7 to the bitter end. I may even dip my toe in Linux waters.

MicroSoft is trying to catch a train that departed a long time ago, the old business plan of buying other companies and relabeling their product with a Windows sticker is no longer possible. M$ never did innovate much, this latest "Last ever version of Windows" is nothing but a huge confidence trick.
