    64-bit Windows 10 Pro build 14951

    It should update to the final build just like the preview builds.

    If he upgraded from Win7>Tech Preview, will he get the nag screen saying to upgrade? Or is that an automatic process?

    Also while all tech previewers will get upgraded to RTM, unless you actually upgrade one of your previous Windows systems, then it's still bound by the Tech Preview EULA, in which every version of the Preview will eventually expire...also MS can close the Preview whenever.

    I mean, the Tech Preview does have a licence section...can I replace the generic key with my Win8.0 key and convert to Final when it releases?

    Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and Windows 10 Pro

    Pretty sure its been said if you are in the Tech preview, you can remain in the Tech preview and keep receiving new builds. Or you will be given the chance to go the RTM route. In either case Tech preview subscribers will get a copy for download.
