Microsoft’s free Windows 10 upgrade deadline was reached on July 29.
In spite of the official end of the free Windows 10 update offer on July 29, it seems any valid Windows 7/8.x retail product key still installs Windows 10 for now.
Yes, Microsoft officials insisted and insisted again that after July 29 at 11:59 p.m. UTC, the free Windows 10 upgrade offer would end.
Bu according to Zdnet, it didn’t — at least not completely.
The Get Windows 10 (GWX) promotions seem to have ended. But I’ve heard from several Windows users that they’ve been able to take advantage of the free Windows 10 update using their older Windows 7/8.X product keys after July 29.
