As Ed Tittel wrote earlier, yesterday marked the death (EOL, End of Life) of Windows 7. Users still using Windows 7, especially the hardcore who truly believe all the false rumours and have thus not tested Windows 10 at all, this is for you. I have written a tutorial on Seven Forums, a sister site to Ten Forums, about how you can test Windows 7 on real hardware completely 100% safely, without any changes to your Windows 7 set-up. There is no installation or virtualization required, and your Windows 7 remains intact: Windows 7 users: Windows 10 – Test & Try with No Risk, No Install
Here’s a video from that tutorial:
You can still upgrade from a licensed and activated Windows 7 installation to Windows 10 for free: Windows 7 users – it’s time to upgrade. It’s still free!
By the way, I’ve also made a similar tutorial for Windows 8 and 8.1 users. The process is slightly different than for Windows 7. That tutorial appears on Eight Forums, also a sister site toTen Forums: Windows 8 users: Windows 10 – Test & Try with No Risk, No Install
Here’s the video from that tutorial:
Please upgrade now. By continuing use of Windows 7, you not only risk your computer, but also those belonging to other users you communicate with. It’s time to migrate, and move on up!
