So much so that the company did anything it could to convince users to upgrade to the new OS.
These tactics only made users cling to their good ol’ Windows 7 even more.
It seems that Microsoft finally understood many users want to be able to use old OS versions as they like and changed its strategy.
It may sound too good to be true at first, but yes, the Redmond giant has made the official ISO downloads for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 available alongside Windows 10 ISO files.
Download official Windows 7 ISO/ Windows 8.1 ISO files
All you need to do is go to Microsoft’s official software download website and hit the download button. It’s as simple as that:
Keep in mind that you need to first enter a valid 25-digit product key in order to get the ISO files.
Make sure you have sufficient data storage available on your computer, USB or external drive for the download to complete. More specifically, you need a blank USB or DVD that has at least 4 GB of space.
Also, don’t forget to read the complete list of system requirements to make sure that your machine can properly run the OS.
