    Just a thought but wasn't 10240 and insider build and then the same build came out for the OEM's to use? And wasn't that the way it worked on the 29th? The build that came down on that date was the same as the insider version(10240).

    My point is.. that the build OEM's put on their PC's was likely an insider build at one time.
    Interesting theory, since they are both the same build number what you are saying is technically correct.

    If you are suggesting they installed them as insider previews and then switched the activation, that doesn't sound logical to me.

    Good point.. I have no idea how the OEM's activated 10. They may have used a generic key?? Not sure.

    But I do know that insider build 10240 was the same as the one that was dropped on July 29th.

    I agree, that wasn't what I was disagreeing with.
