    One of my computer is using non original windows 7 and it did not receive the free upgrade to Windows 10 (obviously). I want to upgrade it to 10 but in my country it still not available to purchase, I try to contact some local store but they say same thing.
    So, if I buy a new Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 (just OS/license, not a new pc) today and clean install my computer with original one will it receive a free upgrade to Windows 10? Or is the reservation closed in 29 July?
    Or, do I have to wait until Windows 10 available in my market?

    Yes u'll get...but u should first update ur w7/8.1 to w10 without clean install.if u did a clean install u will not able to activate ur w10 copy...so first of all update it using windows update then make sure it is activated then u can perform a clean install
    Because i did a clean install and my w10 wasn't activated...so i installed my w7 again and updated my w7 to latest one and reserved my laptop...now it is downloading...now i can see my '$Windows-BT'...
    **make sure after upgrading to w10 it is activated...then u can perform clean install...or reset ur pc...if u making clean install using iso so while installing it u should skip enter product key step and after installation login to ur ms account then it will be activated

    In local store, but in fact Windows 7 Home price is still high, about $180, but there is a discount so it price is just same as Windows 8.1, about $100. And Windows 7 Starter discounted to about $80. All of it would get same Windows 10 Home.
    But I haven't decided yet, just to make sure if I activate the license now will I get Windows 10 or not. In case of Prathameshk, he already have activate his Windows 7 before 29 July, and reinstall it again.

    Actually...when i did clean install my copy wasn't activated but if u 1st update w10 and then perform a clean install then u can activate ur windows 10
    If u are doing clean install it will never activate(correct me if i'm wrong)...so 1st of all update via WU and perform a clean install its a best way, i think to install W10(clean install)...and if u dont have patience use registery tweak to install...i did that and using my w10 home & its working perfectly...

    I dont think there will be problem if u activate w7 now beacause u'll definitely get all w7 update which are necessary to reserve ur w10 update...
