    The term "evaluation copy" makes it seem like it is not valid as a permanent install of windows. When in fact, the product keys that "most" of us use to activate are legitimate keys that entitle us to the product. I just think it is a bad choice of terminology. Instead of "Evaluation Copy" it should say "Insider Build" or something similar.

    It does say "Insider Preview" as well as "Evaluation Copy."

    Absolutely nothing worked, not even five naked virgins in a full moon night.
    Only thing which helped, was to disable "Hyper-V" in Windows Features (German Windows)

    Windows 1.00 to Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Build 14971.1000

    Installing from ISO


    I downloaded the ISO for 10565 from Microsoft and made a DVD.

    I cleaned my primary drive using DISKPART.

    I installed (UEFI) and my copy activated.

    I'm installing Office 365 Office 16.

    EDIT: Office is installed and Activated without having to use the Command Line protocol.

    I read somewhere that it's to test new licensing policy.

    RE: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10565 - Page 18 - Windows 10 Forums


    One more detail in this new activation method interested me: what about upgrading an activated Windows 10 Home edition to Pro using a Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate or Windows 8.1 Pro key? I thought it could never work but decided to test to be sure.

    As we know now, even a clean install of build 10565 on previously not digitally entitled () hardware using a Windows 7 or 8.1 key works and activates. Now I tested this:

    • Clean install and activate Windows 10 Home Build 10565 using a genuine Windows 10 Home product key:

    • When installed and activated, change the product key in Settings > Update & Security > Activation, use a Windows 7 Professional or Windows 8.1 Pro key. This did not work, whatever valid Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate or Windows 8.1 Pro product key I tested:

    Conclusion: Those wanting to upgrade Windows 7 Home Basic or Home Premium or the basic Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Pro need first to upgrade to Windows 10 Home, then buy a valid Windows 10 Pro license and do the version internal upgrade by changing the product key. Alternatively, to save some money, they can first upgrade the underlying qualifying Windows 7 Home Basic or Home Premium to Professional or Ultimate, or the basic Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1 Pro and only then upgrade to Windows 10 which will result an activated Windows 10 Pro with less cost.

    () = Windows 10 automatically activated when a qualifying older OS is upgraded to Windows 10.

    So from your test, if I buy laptop with 10 home pre-installed I couldn't upgrade it with my existing 8 Pro retail key but I could do a clean install with the same 8 Pro key?
