    Yes, what list did you find my product code listed. I looked on several websites and several different lists and I couldn't find it. Of course I am not going to publish the whole thing here and now, but I felt compelled to show the last 5 characters so that somebody could figure out the riddle.
    These keys are not necessarily officially published, but form part of Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK).

    There is an unofficial list on pastebin. Not sure if I'm allowed to post the link, I'll PM it to you instead.

    Edit: Ninja'd by Fafhrd - I need to be quicker...

    Thanks. So I wonder how they are going to issue the new product codes, or if indeed they are doing away with them. Like I have said, I am officially out of the insider program, so I am very curious about this whole license and product key issue.

    Windows 10: RTM is dead (sorta) -- Long live Windows as a Service - Windows 10 Forums

    This should answer people question about the 10240 rtm.

    10240 is basically a bare-bones rtm that will come with updates on July 29th. The oem will have a way to remove and add their own legit keys to the systems they are going to sale. On the rocky key issue, how are you going to do a clean install if everyone has the same key? Maybe that what an update will change on the 29th.

    The key is for installation (which is seamless) and Product ID purposes only - you activate via DeviceID that has an activation code.

    So I'd better move my (transferable) Windows 8.1 retail installation onto various machines and reserve a copy on each, while I have a chance to use Windows 10 10240, which is reasonably stable, as my main machine ?

    Just one bit of news regarding the whole Windows 10 Home Edition automatic update brouhaha. Since I am the first person in America that has dropped out of the insiders program, and I am still running Windows 10, I just want to inform everybody that there is one option in the update section of Home Edition. If an update requires a system restart, you can option to be notified before the restart instead of having an automatic restart. I chose that option.

    Say what? How is it easy and why would you?
    In this thread it was previously mentioned that dropping from insider required a reboot and reverted from Pro to Home. In older OSs switching to a lower edition usually required a reinstallation. Microsoft cannot have computers shut off because a Pro subscription expired, but dropping to Home after a reboot would be acceptable.

    Not saying that Microsoft will sell Pro as a subscription, but it may be possible. Should still be sold alongside a permanent upgrade solution.

    I tested the theory by clean installing on a previously activated devices without a key - got activated automatically - then changed the key to a fake one, without it affectiing activation.

    Best to wait for GA to get official confirmation.

    I want to opt out of the Windows Insider Program on 7/29.” If you decide to opt-out of the program and upgrade to the 7/29 build you will be subject to exactly the same terms and conditions that govern the offer* that was extended to all Genuine Windows 7 and 8.1 customers. This is not a path to attain a license for Windows XP or Windows Vista systems. If your system upgraded from a Genuine Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 license it will remain activated, but if not, you will be required to roll back to your previous OS version or acquire a new Windows 10 license. If you do not roll back or acquire a new license the build will eventually expire.
