I get what your saying. The time clock is a count down to when activation times out. If your already not activated I don't think it matters? I think your going to get nagged to activate anyway. Reduced functionality will likely kick in too, Requardless of the time clock. That's what I would expect to happen? I'd have to install the Home version to test it out myself. All my PC's have Digital Entitlements for Pro. I'm not into VM's either. Interesting stuff. I may do an unactivated install myself on my spare tower to see first hand what happens.
I had to make a few selections and the site created one of those "personal" download links (good for a limited time; 24 hours?).
The link doesn't work now though (obviously):
Since I was trying to do an inplace upgrade, I tried running it from inside W7.
I also tried running it directly from the DVD.
I guess W7 Home Premium must have been the US version.
The ISO: Win10_1511_1_SingleLang_EnglishInternational_x64.iso
You should have picked the English version of 10 Home x64 if you have 7 Home Premium. I did 3 computers this week, a 7,8 and 8.1. On all of them, I put the ISO on the desktop and ran an in-place Upgrade by directly mounting it (no DVD or USB). All 3 completed in 30-45 mins with zero problems.
This is what you will now see when arriving there instead of the immediate upgrade online and MC Tool options when scrolling the page as expected.
No option to download anything was the point I was trying to make before. The revision would the offer now expired is the conversion to purchase only.Buy Windows 10
Windows 10 is the best Windows ever and the full version is still available as it always has been. Get Windows and start doing great things.
Now for anyone who has already seen 10 activated on one machine or another you should be able to download the TH2 and see that updated to RS1 by way of the WU following a clean install coming in as one of the updates. The initial 11/12 arrived following the Insider flavor of same that came in two weeks prior and why these last few builds have been the Preview form for the RS1 Anniversary update itself. Super Tuesday for 10 soon to be here fortunately!
I just went here, http://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/softw...load/windows10 and the MCT is still working. I downloaded the Tool and Ran it.
