    If it's like the older Windows that required activation (XP, Vista, 7,8), there is no deactivation. No way of informing the activation servers that a copy is no longer in use.

    You actually have more than 30 days. After or on the 30th day you won't be able to roll back. You will need to restore from an image backup.
    I don't know anything about using imaging, albeit doesn't the image contain all the same information as the original OS it was taken from. If so then wouldn't Microsoft's servers be able to identify that specific OS thus concealing or stop you from rolling back?

    That doesn't work if you did a clean install after you did an upgrade. I was actually talking how to uninstall the activation from Microsoft activation servers. Some people are implying that after 30 days you won't be activate windows 7 or 8.1 if you do a clean install or restore from an image. In this case for me it won't matter because I have a pre-installed system that pre-activated.

    Do you have a source? The reason my windows 7 retail might be de-activated after 30 days. However, the last activation was done for windows 7 just yesterday. I upgraded from my oem key on the backup of my computer to windows 10, then I did a clean install of windows 10 32 bit. It activated.

    Here is my method (Not complete instructions)
    Created both 64 bit & 32 bit install usb drive
    Windows 7 oem partition one upgraded to windows 10 and it activated.
    After image restore
    Change Windows 7 oem to a valid windows 7 retail key (To avoid re-installing and to be legal with EULA)
    Clean Instal of Windows 10 32 bit to partition 2 and did an install test to see if Microsoft works 7 would install, after connecting to the internet it activated.

    Programs like Macrium Reflect can save and backup whole disk or just C: disk and any partitions needed for booting and when you restore that image all is back exactly same as it was when image was made. Can be stored on external disk or other large enough storage device.

    This is an interesting topic, thus I will fellow to learn more. Here is a question: I have a built in Key (EUFI or is that UEFI) now it is my understanding that MS has now resigned that Key to Windows 10; now if so even if I use an image of that OS which is windows 8.1, and decide to dump Windows 10 three months down the road that image will no longer be useable because It will not activate as the original key now belongs to Windows 10 on that speicfic computer/machine/system. . .

    Guys I upgraded from Windows 7 home premium to Insider build 10240 on my laptop. I have left insider build but I am on Windows 10 pro. How to change to Windows 10 home pro from build 10240? Do I need to create Windows 10 home pro using media creation tool to upgrade to Windows 10 home?

    There is no Windows Home Pro? There is Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro. You can download either version with the media creation tool. Just select windows 10 Home or windows 10 Professional from the drop down list.
