Post EOL updated to Windows 7

Recommended Posts

For what its worth, I've been a member at MDL for many years, since 2010, so long I no longer remember if there was a hassle back when I signed up. I just wanted to say that I have NEVER gotten a single email from them for any reason whatsoever. With that experience, I wouldn't worry about getting spammed by them. also, AFAIK, there are many members from here that are also members there, so overall I trust them and their website.

More subtle way of monetizing personal information are quite commonplace right now, so I second bphlpt ;)

Could someone please detail (or provide a link) to the process for doing updates via the update catalog for win7 (POSready) after the EOS?

When I go to the site and search on "POSready" or "windows 7 posready" and sort by date the updates are all quite old.

If I search on "embedded" I get entries similar to:

2019-10 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows Embedded Standard 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4519976)

Will these types of updates work for a Win7 pro 64 bit with media center installed?

 

Thanks much!

Yep, but I want that BUT without everything else that differs Win7 from Win8 ;)

OK - so BESIDES the Metro interface and the Start Screen and the lack of the Start Menu - because Classic Shell takes care of ALL OF THAT, Windows 7 and Windows 8 are nearly identical; they really are.  Moreso, I can put on an Aero-like Visual Style, that makes it sooooo Windows 7-like.

I just wish people would realize that  :)

 

Has anyone tried this method?

Enable The Classic Start Menu in Windows 8

How To Enable The Original Start Menu In Windows 8 / Disable Metro UI

I have to admit I never paid much attention to Windows 8 because of Metro. Microsoft should have included a way to toggle between Classic Desktop and Metro in Folder Options or at least educate users about the registry hack. It would have saved them and users a lot of aggravation.

That hack was just in pre-release builds.
