    The "plan" was to DL 10 and install at a much later date as my PC isnt ready yet for what I want to do.

    Unfortunately I got suckered into the nag screen that said I could install later and after the load it tells me I can delay up to 4 days...wow.

    One person on another forum said he "heard" that if I refuse to accept the user agreement it will revert back to the original OS ??

    What I want to do is add another HD and run 7 Pro 64 on one (been fine for years) and 10 on the other as a clean install. If 10 wipes out my 7 Product Key as many have said I'll switch manually instead of a dual boot.

    Ideas/suggestions please?

    Are you going to purchase another license for Windows or do you have two licenses now? Windows 10 will not "wipe out" your Windows 7 product key, but if you use the free upgrade to Windows 10 you still have only 1 license for 1 install of Windows and you cannot legally dual boot Windows 7 and Windows 10 with a single license.

    And yes, if you decline the Windows 10 EULA, it should stop the installation.

  5. Step 1. Clean your Windows 10 download using GWX control panel
    ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/GwxControlPanelSetup.exe

    Step 2:- get your windows 7 product extratced using either Belark or produkey (Just in case *Smile )

    Step 3:- Download and install windows 10 .. (as long as its free)

    Step 4;_ Since Win10 OS is downloaded and activated as a free update and it has registered your computer's Hardware ID.. you can downgrade to windows 7. Now windows 10 will be available for free even after free update period expires

    Step 5 :_ Once you get your New HDD get windws 10 installed on it and Enjoy good of both world.
    If any thing goes wrong you have your windows 7 product key.
