    But I'm not a system builder. What would be my limitation if I buy it for myself.

    How would MS know that I don't got a genuine license?
    1. You are building a system so in a sense you are a system builder.
    2. MS wouldn't know if you bought a computer built by someone else or if you built it yourself.
    One computer, one user I doubt that MS would care. I think what they are mainly concerned with is the fact that they won't give support for the OS and that you don't try to install it on a different computer.

    I do not know where you got your information. But, I just checked the official insider program page, and no mention is made of your stated requirements.
    If that is correct, gabe aul needs to update that insider page. He is the one that posted that info in one of his blogs. Someone here may have a link to that blog, showing that information.

    Cheapest way that I know for a legit key is to buy a 32 bit Windows 7 key from Amazon and use that key to install Windows 10. The 32 bit key will work for W10 64 bit.

    $42 on Amazon Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 32bit (OEM) System Builder DVD 1 Pack (For Refurbished PC Installation)
