I have a PC with windows 7 ultimate. It is not legal version. I have a windows 7 pro legal key and want to downgrade. Only problem is my pro disk does not have sp1 integrated so i get an error. I can't uninstall sp1 so I need a new ISO with sp1 integrated.

Downloaded the ISO file. Now the question. Can I run the upgrade from an HD or must I burn a CD? The HD will not be the one I am installing on. How about a partition on the same HD as install?

With Windows 10 being free and a really stable operation why not there ?

I may try it in the future, but not at this time.
I don't like the fact that I can not turn off updates for one.
I just wish they would quit changing the gui. I liked the way XP looked and worked. I have 7 configured to look similar with a quick launch bar and no pinned programs or doubled up window buttons at the bottom.

Last I checked 10 was not free. When first announced they had a period offering it free, but that period expired.

Yes and no. Available free till the end of the year "if you use assistive technologies"

Quote:
You qualify for the free upgrade if you use assistive technologies, which include such features as a magnifier to better see the screen, a narrator to read text aloud, keyboard shortcuts and an on-screen keyboard. Such tech is "designed to provide additional accessibility to individuals who have physical or cognitive difficulties, impairments, and disabilities,"
