    Well, you are flat out wrong and I didn't know the answer already, which is why I started the thread. I kept on responding because I was waiting for an explanation of someone saying they "knew" it didn't work and why (or they already tried).

    I'm not an Insider, I've never been an insider, I've never signed up to be an Insider, and have never had any M$ accounts attached to my W10 (TP) installs.

    The big question now is whether or not I can do a clean install and still activate to W10 Pro. I don't think I can, but I don't know yet.
    Where exactly did you get Windows 10 TP builds if you aren't an insider? In order to get the OS, you have to sign up for the insider program.

    Um, no, you're completely wrong. The W10 TP ISOs were freely available on M$ website for anyone to download, anyone to install, and anyone to activate.

    If wanting to bypass the test version of Win10 and IF you are running Win7 w/SP1 or Win8.1, you can get the released version of Win10 by completing all the Updates available. I am now updating a Win8.1 Tablet that hadn't been run in a couple of weeks and the GWX/Get Windows 10 icon appeared in the Notification Area, let me Reserve Win10 for it. I'll probably go ahead with the Upgrade in an hour or so. The GWX icon appears as the same printed on Windows key on the keyboard, 4 white squares or window panes.
