Hi

I currently have a windows 7 build disk. I have used this to upgrade to Windows 10 during the free trial period. I have one questions however...

If I ever use this disk to reinstall Windows 7 after the free trial period ends will i then have to pay to upgrade to Windows 10?

Thanks in advance.

Your original Windows 7 license (product key) is now tied to the upgraded Windows 10 installation, so you can't reuse that product key again on another installation.

Of course, you can use the media (build disk), but you need to acquire a second product key to install that version of Windows 7.
