    Can I clean install Win Ten if I'm an Insider?

    Running 10240 Pro activated from the upgrade of 10166 release. Now I wanna clean install it and wondering about product key and/or if it will be activated?

    Yes. Several people have reported doing it and being activated when done.

    Key is generic, everyone has the same one, upgrade or clean install.

    If asked for a key, click on Skip.

    Going on vacation, it won't be this week. Will try it on my way back.

    Back from vacations. Will now test 10240 clean install activation and hardware hash ID. The Win Ten hardware hash (given probably under 10074) is shown under This Computer Properties and it should remain the same for the next year. Before the 29th I was running it deactivated.

    Download it with µTorrent from here (fast link): Download Windows 10 RTM Build 10240 ISO - Microsoft News
    The web site detects that I'm running the Pro Version.

    I'm having only one issue and don't have nothing to complain regarding stability under Opera 31.x: Desktop appearance is set default to black, not able to change it or add a picture.

    Why should people be getting the ISO from my computer when they can get it directly from Microsoft in a 5 minute download?

    Norton didn't like the fact that I was out for 11 days: It responded positively to all tasks that I was ask to do.
