Windows 10: Clean Install Windows 10 Directly without having to Upgrade First
I'd read that N is without the media player. Is that the same distro as the "MS news pointing to 192"? Or is that another distro?

The MS page explains in detail about the differences between the US based and EU releases. What is a Windows 7 N edition? Windows 7 N editions offer choice
With the free upgrade to 10 the new Windows DVD Player option is provided as an update. If you replace the upgrade install or go for the clean install method here bypassing the upgrade entirely you would need to buy the player separately at the MS online store. MS threw in the Windows DVD Player otherwise $30US as an incentive for people to try the free upgrade to 10 out.
Another reference that explains further about special editions is the blog seen at Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10: N, K and KN Special Editions

I know that the improvement explained in post #64 of this thread will be added to the upcoming November Patch TH2, but, just out of curiosity, I would like to know if the activation done through this method (BTW excellent tutorial, as usual ) will be retained by MS even after 07/29/2016 (end of the free upgrade period) ?

I'm afraid this will be one of those things we'll have to wait and see.
It really won't matter afterwards anyways since we'll be able to enter the Windows 7 or 8.1 product key to activate Windows 10.
Thank you, Brink, for the fast reply !
