Windows 7: Downloading W10, but not installing it. Questions

07 May 2016   #21

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

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.

Windows 7 Pro x64 Windows 10 Pro x64

@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.
