When Windows 10 upgrade is no longer free, what then?.

HP Recommended



I've tried upgrading to Windows 10 64-bit over 15 times since about 8 months after it became available. I've researched possible solutions until I just couldn't do it anymore fmovies putlocker huile de ricin You name it, I've tried it - all except for agreeing to wipe out all my data and software that's currently installed. I refuse to do this just to get Windows 10.


So, my question is, what's going to happen this summer (2016) when Microsoft no longer offers the upgrade for free? My plan is to just use my HP Envy running Windows 8.1 until my laptop dies of old age. Do you know if Microsoft is going to stop supporting Windows 8.1 by the end of 2016?


Oh, and just for giggles, I've spent almost 12 hours on the phone with Microsoft Support trying to get my laptop upgraded and even 2nd level support couldn't get it upgraded. They had no idea why it wouldn't upgrade. Both 1st and 2nd level support techs even remotely logged on to my laptop to assess my system and run the upgrade themselves and failed.

What is it running now ? The Windows 10 free upgrade ended few years ago but many people say we still do that. Please try:
