Microsoft has announced that it will cease offering most versions of Windows 7 to OEMs on 31 October.

Microsoft to cut Windows 7 OEM supply on 31 October


From The Inquirer:
With the exception of the Windows 7 Professional edition, which gets an unspecified reprieve, OEMs will only be able to install Windows 7 on new machines on a "while stocks last" basis after the last day of October.

The news shouldn't come as a complete surprise as it comes exactly one year after Microsoft ended retail sales for all versions of Windows 7, although at the time of writing many retailers still have stock for sale. It is Microsoft's usual practice to withdraw OEM supply a year to the day after stopping retail sales.
