Microsoft is going to announce the brand new Windows Operating System, and that is Windows 11. The announcing official date is June 24th at 11 am Eastern Time. As per the official’s tweets, there wasn’t any mention of Windows 11, they just mention the Microsoft Event 2021, however, all rumors were about the Windows 11 release.

But, now it is confirmed that Microsoft will announce the brand new Windows 11 OS on the Microsoft Event 2021, because of the leak of the Windows 11 ISO image file.

So, I have also looked over the internet to download the ISO file. Most of the links were dead or file deleted due to copyright violations. But I have downloaded the file in my VPS server and stored in the various storage bucket.

Upgrading Links

Will Windows 11 Be Free Upgradeable?

Microsoft is finally going to announce its next-generation Windows, and its event is going to be held on June 24th. And many Windows 10 users are asking whether they will get a free upgrade to Windows 11?

Windows 10 was the only version in Microsoft history that allowed Windows 7 and Windows 8 users to upgrade for free. However, if you are a user of Windows 7 and Windows 8 then you can still upgrade to Windows 10.

But the question is, will you be allowed to upgrade to Windows 11 for free?
According to Microsoft’s senior analyst Michael Cherry, “Currently running the supported version of Windows will be offered for a free upgrade or a discount.”

We expect that Microsoft will upgrade their current Windows operating system, and if we check the Windows rival MacOS, they provide free upgrades when it gets new releases. However, we can’t say for sure that Microsoft will do this with Windows 7 or Windows 8, but if you have Windows 10 then you should upgrade to the latest Windows 11.

According to the leaked version of Windows 11, it is still running on Windows 10 build with just newer UX. So wait until 24th June 2021 for the Microsoft event.

    • Hi Robert,
      You don’t need any password, just download the ZIP file and unzip it. You can use Windows file explorer or any other compression tool to Unzip.

  1. Hi Pronay,
    Yes, my mistake 🙂 I tried to download from more sources the iso 🙂 That compressed file is from an other site 🙂

    • Hi Dorikanta, you have to install fresh, but if you want to upgrade your Windows 10 to Windows 11, then you should wait until 24th june.

      This Window 11 ISO file is leaked Developer version. However, you install it. But if thinking to upgrade to Windows 11 then wait for the public build.

      Thanks for the comment.
