Windows 7: Install Acer Recovery Disks (Windows 7 64X Home Premium)

09 Aug 2016   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Good point Roy about original system from Acer Recovery Disks and guess that I should leave the hard drive in the desktop for Windows 7. Later will clone to SSD. Now you question about the licences to be retail. Well the Acer Recovery Disks are from Acer but not sure about Windows 10 as I got free upgrade from Microsoft. Is that retail or just an upgrade gift from Microsoft. Should I contact Microsoft about this or don't worry about this. Your advice will be a benefit for this.

Windows 10 Pro. 64/ version 1709 Windows 7 Pro/64

My understanding.

Once one uses their Windows 7 key for a upgrade to W-10 and their 30 trial time is up; the Windows 7 key is now locked to the W-10 installation.
Therefore the Window 7 key will no longer legally work on the Windows 7 installation.

One will no longer be able to use (1) Windows 7 key to install and activate W-10 and Windows 7 at the same time legally.

If it was my computer I would keep the Windows 7 key for Windows 7. (If Microsoft allows that) at this stage and just buy W-10.

To put it in another way.
If one trades in their old car on a new car; one doesn't get to keep both the old car and the new car.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

First want to say thank you to some of the members here who have replied to my messages. I have decided not to go ahead to install Windows 7 Home Premium 64X (Acer Recovery System). So I will stay with Windows 10 on my desktop. I should have done way back to roll back to Windows 7 within 30 days of my use on Windows 10 but I wasn't thinking of this before till few weeks ago. Oh well.

Anyway once again thanks for your replies here.
