Formatting Windows 10

Product Name: ENVY dv7
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Salve

Ho un PC con sistema operativo Windows 8.1. Ho intenzione di installare Windows 10.

Poichè effettuo periodicamente delle formattazioni per la manutenzione del mio computer, volevo sapere se dopo l'installazione di Windows 10, se formatto dovrò ANCHE reinstallare Windows 10 e se questo resterà sempre gratuito una volta scaricato la prima volta. Oppure se, una volta installato Windows 10, esso verrà automaticamente registrato nella partizione di recupero e quindi ogni volta che effettuerò un ripristino mi verrà automaticamente installato Windows 10.

Grazie

 

Hello

I've got a PC with Windows 8.1 operating system. I want to install Windows 10.

I usually format my computer and i would like to know if after installing Windows 10, if i'll format, i'll have to REINSTALL Windows 10 too and if this one will remain free for me. Or if, once installed Windows 10 it will be permanently written in the recovery partition of my PC so that it will be available automatically every time i format.

Thanks

Hi @Winged_Cat,

Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!

I came across your post about the Notebook, and wanted to assist you! I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook and concerns if you need to reformat your Notebook after or later on. Yes. Once you've upgraded to Windows 10 using the free upgrade offer, you will be able to reinstall, including a clean install, on the same device. You won't need a product key for re-activations on the same hardware. If you make a meaningful change to your hardware, you may need to contact customer support to help with activation. You'll also be able to create your own installation media, like a USB drive or DVD, and use that to upgrade your device or reinstall after you've upgraded.

I hope this helps you understand the Upgrade.

 

Thanks.
