    Hi guy, I bought a PC alienware that came with Windows 10 and after some time using it now I decided to install win 7 and activate with genuine msdn key.
    The problem is that I want to do a clean install and then not remove various patches that force the installation of Windows 10, is there any way to install windows 7 preventing the future notification and patches of windows 10?

    do you think if I install windows 7 after 29 July 2016 the upgrades patches for win 10 should no longer available, right.
    thanks

    Hi thanks for quick reply, this script must run before or after the post-SP1 updates through windows update?

    I've always done this procedure with your scripts and btw I've seen as well you're updating this IMPORTANT script of yours over time (in fact this is a new one and almost missed it. I wasn't even going to check this thread in the first place so I was lucky, I think):

    Now, could you put a link on your signature an even open a new thread about this Anti-10 upgrade thing? Please. See, there are lots of tools out there claiming to be the best but, by far, I trust yours much more. Simply facts.

    My friend, I've never talked about tutorials LOL :D
    Just to open a new thread to maintain and update your DisableOSUpgrade script, that's it. Or keep maintained an existing post of yours.
    And add a link to that thread / post in your signature.

    Seriously, I almost missed this new script. I did catch it just by mere luck.

    Just a quick one for you. Assuming your going to be gaming with a Alienware PC, you do know Windows 7 or 8 will not support Directx 12? It's only available on Windows 10.

    If it's going to be just a desktop, no problem but, if your going to be doing hardcore gaming, you should stick with Windows 10...

    Hi, you're right, but Windows 8.1/10 not like, it too invasive and poor with hibrid shell and I can not conceive apps on a desktop


    question:
    but if I set windows update for downloading only security patch and I disable the optional update
    windows update will install GWX and telemetry the same? It could be a very simple solution to keep windows 7 cleanly
    thanks

    You're right, it won't (when disabling "recommended" updates).

    It is.
