    Will give it a go, cheers.
    I ran it and selected the "Upgrade this PC now" option. Worked on my two laptops and two desktops. One was running 10 build 10240 and the other three 8.1 Pro.

    Doing same, will also make a DVD copy for backup. Do you use the Microsoft Account to login as what happens if I have a Custom PC with Windows 7 64 bit and a Asus laptop with Windows 8/8.1 64 bit on it, will it share them both and use two keys from which I used on my old OSs?

    I use a Microsoft Account on all my PC's. When I upgraded my Windows 7 PC to the Insider Preview it just kept my local account and logged me into Windows 10 with that. I wasn't prompted to switch to a Microsoft Account but I did any way. That was build 10074. After that I undated to each new build until I got to 10240. Then today I used the Media creation tool to upgrade to Windows 10 consumer build, or what ever you want to call it. The other three PC's I upgraded were running Windows 8.1 Pro. They had all stalled at validating or almost ready and I just got tired of waiting for something to happen.

    Hopefully people will be able to login on there Microsoft account on any PC/Laptop and link as many devices, as I have two license keys and only one Microsoft account. ��

    I use the same Microsoft Account on all 4 of my PC's. It makes syncing things across all 4 easy. My wife's account is only setup on her laptop, that's the only PC she uses.

    It looks to me this ISO downloading from MS site is different from the one to Insider's last 10240 install.esd converted. You can no longer join the Insider Program with this new ISO downloading one any more.

    Correct me if I'm wrong!

    Let me try to explain this way, correct if you disagree:
    When after you upgraded from normal installation or using ISO from MS site, your 7/8.1 original product key will still be kept in record, and that is the real key. You will get a common key of 10 once checked.

    So what key can you use to activate 10 permanently if you clean installing?

    I did a clean install using my install.esd converted last from 10240 Insider Program with my MSA account and I'm staying well as an insider now!

    You must do the upgrade first from the 7 SP1 or 8.1 first.

    You can not do a clean install first.

    You're correct on the key, it will use the 7 or 8.1 key.

    There is no 10 key to use after.
