    I believe josweet posted that if you just wind back the date to before the end of the free offer, it still lets you update for free and allows activation. Not sure if this is still working, but worth a shot. I believe another member mentioned the upgrade was allowed past the deadline for users of assistive technologies.

    Thanks to Over Carl

    Download win7 iso and install as usual, then activate using Daz activator. Finally do the upgrade to win10 using roll back method. Total price FREE!
    I have done the above many times

    win7 (need a a key to download, See bottom of post) [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    (untested) [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    WIn10 free upgrade> [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]Now free keys are easy to find these days, just a quick look on ebay from a home seller & voila. A picy of the bottom of the laptop

    Ebay Key > [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Default Re: Need windows 10 for a new pc cheap

    I would put on windows 10, as that is what is expected as an O/s now. Anything less, it makes it looks old. Also win10 supports DX12, which is suppose to have higher FMS than DX11.
    Make sure you do all the updates in 10, as that will slow down the PC during gameplay.
    I would (and do) install 7 (grab iso from torrents) and then activate it. (dont do any updates in 7)
    Then upgrade to win10 using roll back method.
    Once win10 on there & its activated, do a fresh install of 10 (so u know its clean) and do the updates.

    Do it all from a USB stick, as itll be alot quicker that way. USe the USB2 port also, as using the USB3 port will more than likely fail due to no USB3 driver.

    If its being done on an SSD, u should be able to have a clean install of 10 in approx an hour, if its a HDD.. then clear your evening

    Activate using Dazloader. Im not sure if this is the official .exe but the links work> [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Personally, i would use the above to activate 7, then use the roll back method to upgrade. Once upgraded to 10 AND activated, i would format and reinstall as fresh so u know its defo clean

    Just to report back.All done now using josweet's method.Its taking me a while as i haven't done this before.But once done,you will understand the process alot more.What a great forum for helping people out,like myself and others.The pc I've just done is a xmas present for my son,and as I had maxed out on the build,this method has made me super chuffed and Im sure it will with my son on xmas day.
    Massive Thanks to josweet and everbody that has helped with all your time and input to help me get this working.
    Much appreciated all
    Keep up the great work
    Spot on
    Happy Christmas and all the best.����
