    I don't know if that's how it's supposed to work, but it doesn't (not with a pre-installed embedded BIOS key anyway).
    If you just run setup.exe on the ISO "from" within your currently installed Windows, it should upgrade depending on what version your upgrading from, not based on the embedded key? Are you saying it doesn't if you install that way? Just want to confirm. If you boot from your install media BIOS key takes precedent, as far as I know. My hard drive was blank so there was no OS to be detected at all.

    As much as I want to agree with this, I think it would confuse non-IT savvy people. Getting prompted for something they know nothing about won't go down well.

    I think the current method of adding a PID.txt file is probably better.
    Yeah, either way it going to confuse some. It will be interesting to see what changes after July 2016 though.
