    I wish I could, Indiana, but they're all "not for resale" versions.

    Are they the black DVD sets marked NFR? I have seen those selling on eBay. I have a couple of those myself. It seems a waste to let such a sought after OS remain unused. You could always give them to me.....I'll promise to use them........

    Is a "not for resale" label even legal where you live? I think there was a court decision for European members that this wasnt legal at all and costumers have a right to sell their OEM licenses too.
    I live in the United States and I won't sell what I don't have the right to sell. The licenses I have were all gifts and aren't for sale.

    That is fine, I had to ask and I know I was cheeky but hey.

    We don't know that for sure however, my testings have proved otherwise at least for me. I upgraded to build 10240 after withdrawing totally from the insider program. Then deleting all devices from one drive and my Microsoft account each time. Each of my test, it upgraded to build 10240 and was permanently activated. I build an iso image from 10240 esd using Kari instuctions. Got the key using showkey. Then I did a clean install and it activated.


    I am not the only one thinking that insiders are already running the "real" windows 10

    Windows 10: Fact vs. fiction | InfoWorld

    All of the testing builds up to 10240 have an expiration date.
    After 7/29 all insider testing builds will have an expiration date. If you computer does not qualify for the free upgrade. If you quit being ad Insider the build that you are on at that time will expire.

    So because you opted out of the insider program an expiration date will be assigned after tomorrow.

    Doesn't really matter, I change the way I am going to do the upgrade anyhow.

    That not the way I understand it. Upgrade from 7 sp1 or 8.1 to 10166 then upgrade to 10240 then upgraded to RTM, leave the insiders, then that build will remain activated. For those that left before the rtm upgraded or patch we don't know what will happen.

    If you read my other postings all testing I have done with 10240 was permanently activated.

    I'm not absolutely sure, but if you've actually left the Insider Program and have not rejoined it, you may not get the upgrade when the rest of the Insiders get it.

    Grief, desperation and dashed expectations is what I expect on 29th July.
    It's started - what I said above I mean.

    Having noted the $Windows.~BT folder, I went to updates, and downloaded and began installing them.

    Although there were 2 more updates remaining to get, a restart was required, so I let it restart, which began a round of configuration, restart, further reconfiguration, restart then there was some error reported and everything began to roll back.

    After that, another restart, then back to boot menu.

    System unable to start. F8 duly pressed, and repair attempted.

    Not possible, so a reset was attempted.

    Not possible, so I' have to attempt a clean install of the old 10240, and continue from there I guess.

    $Windows.~BT just contains \sources\Panther\SysResetTrace-Tel-Merge.etl - which is a binary file, I think.

    I have attached $SysReset\Logs\SetupAct_offline.log (as a zip file), in case anyone is interested.

    Now to copy the downloads I found useful for 10240 and reinstall.

    Oh, The Joy, a clean install of 10240 - it will activate OK!

    Won't it?
