    We don't know many things yet. But roll back or reinstall are options for sure.
    the only definite thing, is that there's nothing actually definite. lol. no, i think the button to stop receiving insider builds is the key. i believe if you came from the proper channels, then clicking that button to stop insider builds, does just that, and you remain activated.
    what it comes down to for me, is that staying in the insiders program is the safest way to go forward. then we can figure it all out from there. it's not like we don't have plenty of time.

    There won't be if you clean installed. There is OEM activation info for Windows 7 OEM installs in the BIOS SLIC table, but it doesn't indicate what version was actually installed at the factory. There is no product code. All it really says is this PC is authorized for a factory OEM Windows 7 install for (insert OEM name here). That install could be Starter or all the way up to Ultimate. If you do an upgrade the original key and version info is stored in the Windows registry. That's all changed for Windows 8/8.1. The actual product code is stored in the BIOS and Microsoft could use it to figure out what version was originally installed.

    They do if you do an upgrade install. My original Windows 7 key is still stored in the Windows registry. showkey can find it so Microsoft can too. https://www.tenforums.com/software-ap...7-showkey.html As far as I know I won't have to roll back.

    that sounds sensible. and would explain a lot. but i don't think it is important anyway, what was loaded at the factory, only what was loaded last. factory might have loaded windows vista, but you bought windows 7 and used it for years. that would be the more relevant information anyway. so what you wrote here is the most sensible route as far as i'm concerned.

    I upgraded from Windows 7 and don't have the get windows 10 icon. I wouldn't expect to have it, I'm running the preview. I'll get the final release via windows update just like any other build.

    That's my understanding as well.

    The option is available in Settings, click Advanced, click on Stop insider builds.
    If you have had a legitimate update, you will then be transferred to W10 outsider.

    Does anyone knows that if there is a CLICK WU provided to let us leave the Insider Programs in the next 2 weeks or so, what if we click that on one machine and would still willing stay the programs for other 2 or 3 machines. What will happen?
