    I'm using a Win8 Pro key... I expect to take it all the way through RTM. (that activation works at all may be that it is being tested on TP as well...)
    Did you activate clean install of 10 with 8 Pro key or did you upgrade?

    Looks like the answer to OP's question then - no need to restore back - just activate 10 with 7 key?

    I then thought that perhaps when the free version is offered of 10 that I should have 7 installed so that whatever they check to verify the offer of FREE that there would be no problems.

    Nope, tried a Win7 Pro retail key and it didn't work. Besides the OP has a HP key which most like will only qualify for Starter/Core editions.
