    That seems odd as install key would never need validating again would it?
    It surprised me, especially Enterprise. I'm going to have to start making notes and writing this stuff down, but I'm pretty sure I've done a clean install since then with a skip key and Enterprise activated with a DL. I do know for a fact that I installed Enterprise on several of my PC's, with the same MAK key and they all got a DL. I do believe I made some posts on the subject in superflies activation troubleshooting thread.

    Once you activate and get a Digital License, you also get a generic key. Go to Settings > Update & security > Activation and see what it says.
    In the past, if you manually entered a Windows 10 key, it would have said "activated with a product code" and your key in use would be the one you entered.
    Now it will say "activated with a Digital License" and the key in use will be the generic one. Even if you manually entered it during the install.
