Re: Free Windows 10 update

Then the work around is to update the Win 7 box, and then roll back to Win 7 for as long as you want to continue using 7.

The machine will still be eligible for the digital entitlement when you are ready for 10 again.

Pain in the neck but not sure how else to make it work. I did not note the changes so I cannot answer your question directly.

Jeff, did the physical key number change after?

I still have a Windows 7 box, I want to keep but an Windows 10 key for this box will be nice before it stopps working for free!

Believe it or not you can use the MCT and update a Win 7, Win 8x to a genuine digital entitlement for that machine.

In other words the license servers are currently still automatically authorizing.

This is not the case should you try to use the GWX tool that annoyed so many way back when. Running this you will not be able to complete the upgrade.

I have most recently, three weeks, done this with a Win Seven Pro desktop and Win Seven home laptop, using the media creation tool and running the update.

Hi, Jonas. We got a free update to Windows 10, but that expired quite a while back.
