    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.
