How To Legally Obtain Windows 10 Free Even Without Licensed Windows 7 or 8
With Microsoft’s Windows 10 on track for a July 29 release, several consumers running unlicensed copies might have been severely disappointed that they will not be able to run the ‘unified interface’ platform due to not having a legitimate copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8. Absolutely wrong. It is time to stuff some hope in to your fallen spirits because the software giant has underlined several numerous types of pirates, and solutions on how you can upgrade your platform for free absolutely no charge.
Any One Signed Up For The Insider Program Will Be Getting A Windows 10 upgrade
Thanks to a blog post published on Windows’ website, the company’s Windows head Gabe Aul has addressed several questions. Starting off, Aul states that Windows 10 will be a free upgrade to anyone who has signed up for the Insider program. The Insider program only requires you to make an account with Microsoft, and that requires absolutely no charge at all.
Gabe Aul also states in the blog post that:
“As long as you are running an Insider Preview build and connected with the MSA you used to register, you will receive the Windows 10 final release build and remain activated. Once you have successfully installed this build and activated, you will also be able to clean install on that PC from final media if you want to start over fresh.”
Additionally, the executive also stated that:
“I’ve gotten a lot of questions from Windows Insiders about how this will work if they clean installed from ISO. As long as you are running an Insider Preview build and connected with the MSA you used to register, you will receive the Windows 10 final release build and remain activated. Once you have successfully installed this build and activated, you will also be able to clean install on that PC from final media if you want to start over fresh.”
In a summary of everything stated above, users will be receiving a Window 10 upgrade if they are running a licensed version of Windows 7 or Windows 8 and above (which was a no brainer). However, if you are not running a legit copy of the aforementioned platforms, then all you have to do is sign up for Windows’ Insider Preview program, and grab an ISO file of Windows 10. When the final build arrives on July 29, your upgrade will be granted to you.
Pretty sweet right? Now all we have to do is wait for the actual product to be released and see if Microsoft kept its promise or not.
