    This is what MSDN lists for the 7 Pro ISO's. You can look up this info yourself without a subscription. You just can't download without one.

    I goofed and had to delete my other post. No you can't use the product code on the laptop's COA sticker on your new PC. I got confused and thought you were trying to reinstall 7 on the laptop not the new PC. OEM is not transferable. Sorry about the confusion.

    That's a bummer. Thanks anyway. In the end, I'll just buy a license.

    Shouldn't 10525 be after 10240 ? If so, he should have received the free license ...


    I happen to have a Win7 PRO ISO from a 3rd party site I downloaded a while ago, dunno if I should trust that or not, but if my key is a OEM key, will it work on a new PC ?
    If you opt out of the insider program your subject to the same rules as everybody else for the free upgrade. Clean installs of the Insider Preview do not qualify. You have had to originally upgraded from windows 7 or 8.1 to get the free upgrade. Some running 10204 appear to have slipped through and stayed activated.

    Well I didn't opt out (and I actually dunno how to opt out), so that is probably why I received the free upgrade from technical preview. And I won't opt out even if I know how (unless someone gives me a good reason to do so).

    Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced options > Stop Insider builds (or something similar) I'm opted out so all I see is "Get started".

    Ah so your still running the Insider Preview. That changes everything. You must still have the watermark and an expiry date? Not real point in trying to transfer that to a new PC. It's not the full consumer version. You can stay an insider and keep running the Insider preview. Each new build will give you a new expiry date. If you opt out activation will eventually time out and you'll lose functionality.

    Actually, it looks like mine are turned off. Maybe it happened when I did the clean install from the bootable USB Microsoft created with their official Windows10 bootable USB creator.
    EDIT: And it looks like I have a 100% genuine license.
    EDIT2: And I have no watermark.
