@Nobody - I feel for you and others for whom English is not their first language. Heaven knows, it is hard enough for us!
But well done, Nobody.
I've got two 8.1's that will get the upgrade to 10 and I have just bought a Dell Optiplex 780 (E8400 cpu, 4MB RAM and 250GB HDD) that has win 7 pro activated on it. I'll use that for my wife's comp and update that to win 10 as well.
This was a much cheaper way of getting a win 10 licence and I got a good comp as well! At least I hope it is a good one as I haven't received it yet! I already have an E8400 setup so I know they are good setups. They overclock well, too, but I am not really interested in that now.
EDIT: The PID.txt file is in the sources folder.
EDIT: No.2 Just noticed, the product code in my PID.txt file does not match what is listed on the insiders page?
This product key is different than what was listed in my system before I did the upgrade and was different then what is list here. It would be interesting if windows update did the same thing. I think that might be fixed with the next build.
That key listed in the Pid did carry over to windows 10 though.
Belarc Advisor called my test version
Microsoft - Windows 8.1 Professional (x64) but it is 10 pro upgrade from windows 7 seven home.

Please bear with me - confusion reigns in my brain. I originally started a legitimate version of Windows 7 which was then legitimately upgraded to Windows 8, using the discount offer at that time. Then, of course, upgrade to Windows 8.1 was installed with no problem from Windows Store. That's where I am in terms of OS installations.
I, for what reason I don't know, joined the "Insider" Program, but never installed ANY of the Technical Previews....my pc is now showing update available for Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 10074 TWICE as Recommended Updates, which I have hidden. The "Get Windows 10" icon is in my taskbar and says " Your pc has met requirements" and "Your Upgrade is reserved". (Screenshots attached) I am assuming I can upgrade to Windows 10 after July 29 with no problems. My concern is: a way to remove the duplicate upgrades being offered under Windows Update for 10074 and when I can opt out of the Insider Program. Can anyone help me straighten this out in my mind? Thanks!
It would be interesting to find out what would happen in my scenario. Upgraded to 10130 usb then upgrade to the RTM then leave the program. I wonder if I would be forced to roll back. I am sure after last week fiasco they don't want to give out free pro versions that are upgraded from windows home version.
I should of mentioned. On the 10130 iso build, I chose not to do updates till after it was installed, don't know if that made a difference or not.
