    Thank you so much. After few restarts Build 10240 showed up. I am now downloading it . Only issue is Product ID and Installed keys are different from when I compare it to sticker and OEM on Windows 7 System Settings screen where it says activated. Show key however shows as OEM shows marker present in Firmware.
    If it's an OEM motherboard with a SLIC table in the BIOS, showkey will always show "OEM marker present in the firmware". No matter what OS is installed or how it was installed. All it means is custom OEM info is embedded in the BIOS. For Windows 7, that info does not contain a product code.

    Is there any program out there can tell what my Product code is so I can confirm it from Sticker. Like STEVAE said I am not going to worry about it any more.

    No, not if Windows isn't installed. Even then, the key you get won't match what is on the COA sticker. Not if its an OEM factory install. Each OEM has an OEM key they use on all their PC's with a factory OEM install. Example, all Dells with Windows 7 home Premium will have the same Dell OEM key. OEM-SLP activation doesn't activate online, it activates against the SLIC table in the BIOS. The code on the COA sticker is for doing a clean install with a regular DVD.

    Windows 8 factory OEM PC's actually have a product code embedded in the BIOS. Windows 7 PC's don't. The Windows 7 BIOS SLIC table will not tell you what version of Windows 7 was installed or what Product code it used. All it tells you is that this motherboard is authorized for an OEM-SLP activation by that manufacturer. You need custom branded OEM install media to do the OEM-SLP install. If you don't have that you have to use the code on the COA sticker.

    If you mean to find out the product key for an installed system, Speccy will do that.

    OneDrive Available Space?


    Since I had to switch to an Online Account to upgrade to b10240 I thought I'd check out some of the features that only work with OAs.

    How do you determine how much space is available in OneDrive?

    I thought that it was supposed to be integrated with W10.
    It doesn't show up as a drive in File Explorer (like USB HDDs and Flash sticks do).
    Right clicking on the icon and checking the properties only shows how much space has been used.

    I have Dropbox installed in W7 (it is off most of the time) and it indicates how much space I have left (obviously not in Windows Explorer).

    Surely if OneDrive is integrated in W10 it should display in File Explorer just like any other drive.
    What use is it if you don't know how much space is available?
    Is MS offering unlimited OneDrive storage?

    I think basic Onedrive free is 15GB but you can add more by adding photos, telling friends just like Dropbox and Amazon........

    More than 24 hours have pasted since my clean installation of the 10162 build from the official ISO (which I keep in my USB stick). Still no upgrade for me. Any ideas - besides patience? Windows 10 Build 10240 for PC is now available


    Note:
    I have already upgraded to 10240 once, right after it became available. I clean-installed however due to a few bugs + new drivers for my system. I am on the fast ring, logged into my MS insider account since yesterday, and my Registry value, on that known key - is TH1. I've restarted win update service and kept checking manually for updates today, for a long time. I only got Defender updates.

    ?

    Thank you
    If it doesn't show up, you can always mount the 10240 ISO and run setup.exe to initiate the upgrade manually.

    This is something you need to opt in and Onedrive should have a popup asking to set it up or you can click the icon and settings. From there you can choose a location for your Onedrive or it'll default to C:
