    So do I - thought this was odd since the machine originally came with Win7. Did a double take thinking I was on my Vista box - but nope ... the box was the Win7 laptop, upgraded to Win8 ... 8.1 with a retail license.

    We shall see what happens.... there has to be an ISO for devices MS targets non-WU updrates. Where, when and how are still questions.

    MS has said once a machine is updrated, you can acquire an ISO - and do clean installs. I don't think the key is embedded in the ISO, it is derived from a qualifying previous OS.

    I believe the new Win10 will be derived from both the original Win7 or Win8.1 key AND some part of the hardware of the computer it is installed on (usually the MAC address of the motherboard). That is how the old OEM licenses work and God help you if you did a major upgrade.
