    We are hoping MS produces a Windows Media creator tool for Windows 10... failing which there is a list of ESD's here...and ISO's could be created from them.

    If MS does not come up with something I'll release my version...

    One would assume it would work with a legitimate product key from Win7 or Win8. But it seems MS has not been entirely clear on how any of this will work as it relates to USB or DVD install media with an ISO.

    No. This seems to be a persistent rumor, born of the fact that you don't have to enter a key when upgrading or doing a clean install after the upgrade.

    There is no key at all encoded in the ESD.

    So if one were to make a USB/DVD ISO. Could they use it on a Windows XP or Vista computer to do a clean install and have it activated?

    See post #6 in:

    Will windows 10 update provide a product key for clean install? - Windows 10 Forums

    Short answer: NO.

    (Did you think they'd make it that easy to circumvent the requirements for the free upgrade?)
