    They will do, its free till the end of July anyway so they won't be bothered.
    Try this again in August and I don't think you will get the same support.

    yep the grace period ends at the end of July and I think its something like £90.00 a licence after that? you can however upgrade a PC to 10 now and get it activated for free, roll it back to your present os and then just roll it forward when you are ready if you wish and the key will still stay (as long as no significant hardware changes have been made).

    only Microsoft knows that answer to be sure guess you will find out soon enough when you build it in August
    to guess it i would say it will change but a guess it is

    When you say 'backup' system, what EXACTLY do you mean by that please?
    (e.g. I am currently on Win 10 on my new laptop, so how EXACTLY would you suggest I back it up first if I decide to install Win 8.1 on it?)
