Hello to all!

 

 

I have installed the Windows update on my Widows 7 machine and am able to get the free upgrade.

 

My question is, I don't like doing upgrades and would rather get a disc and do a clean install.  I like having a disk and a installation code for emergencies.

 

 

Is this going to be possible?  

 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

Mk

Hi Mklangelo :)

Microsoft will post Windows .iso available in free download on their website once Windows 10 gets released on July 29th for the users that wish to go down the path of a clean installation. So yes, it'll be possible.

Nice.  I've NEVER installed an OS this new before but the fact that it's free for me and, if I'm not mistaken it's not the usual new OS?  Has it not been based on something they've been working on for some time?  I mean is is truly ready for release?  Or is it the usual "rush job and we can fix it as we go" type thing?

Well seeing the public technical preview for Windows 10 started around November 2014, you can say that they have been working on it for quite some time, yes (and even before that). As for if it's really ready for a release, who knows. We're all expecting a few bugs and glitches that will be patched via Windows Updates as soon as they are reported to Microsoft, but this is normal.

Fair enough.  Thanks for the info!
