    Hm ok, I'll use the Media Creation tool again and mount it and then run setup. I'll post again later if it works out.

    It's not as complicated as you may think.
    And if you get asked to enter a product key, you know something is not going right and to cancel it.
    A proper upgrade should not ask for a product key.

    If you download the ISO and you have enough space on your drive, you can extract the contents of the ISO to a new folder and run setup from that folder.

    7-Zip is a lightweight utility that will open compressed folders and extract the contents if you don't already have a similar utility. Download the bit-depth (32-bit or 64-bit) of version 9.20 that corresponds to your system architecture
    (the first two (9.38 | 15.06) are still in beta)

    Download 7-Zip from here: http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

    His version might be one of those that uses KMS activation, it has to be re-activated after a defined set of days.
    what is this and how do you run one? slmgr /dlv and then /xpr
    Mine says no KMS can be found. I don't know what this is but can you please explain how to fix it?

    To determine the install status of your machine, execute the following commands in a
    Command Prompt (Admin) window:
    slmgr /dlv
    slmgr /xpr
    req query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost /s

    You are running a system successfully upgraded to Windows 10 if
    slmgr /dlv does NOT have an Evaluation End Date
    - and -
    there are no keys under WindowsSelfHost

    You are running an evaluation of Windows 10, (aka the Insider Program) if:
    slmgr /dlv reports an Evaluation End Date
    - or -
    reg query returns any keys under WindowsSelfhost

    It's also possible that you are running the 30-day trial of Windws 10.
    That can be determined form the slmgr /dlv report - the wording might be different, but the information should be in the same area as the Evaluation End Date information. It might have the word expire in the label reference.

    Some confusion might have arisen when people 'migrated' from the Insider builds to an upgraded system. If a system was upgraded but you did not leave the Insider program, then the upgraded system is still participating in the Technical Preview and will be offered build updates when MS releases them to the flight rings. If that is what you intended then there is no issue - just be aware that you are running Preview builds, not an upgraded system. You can always do a Clean install to get back to a Current build install (RTM, Retail... whatever name works for you).

    Below the fold are reports from two of my machines
    1. Win7 Home Prem upgraded to Windows 10
      Fowwloed by a Clean install on that machine

    2. Insider Technical Preview
      currently on build 10.0.525


    slmgr /dlv & slmgr /xpr


    Upgraded system
    Insider Preview install


    reg query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost /s

At least I can go back to it if I can't get it to activate once it "expires".... I still haven't tried the slmgr /rearm command. The weird thing is that my cousin did the same thing and used the same tool for his laptop, and he's fine, no expiration message or anything, his desktop in his basement has the same thing that I have though. His Windows 7 was also genuine I'm pretty sure.

    This is what my activation screen is saying at the moment.

    Well, I guess then that there's really nothing that anyone can do about this.
    i have the same problem with MJD. Are there any other solutions besides reinstalling windows 7 and 8?

    Install the RTM build 10240 of Windows 10 that doesn't expire. Your Windows 10 has an expiration date because it is an insider build.

Is anyone getting an expiration date?
Basically, I did a clean install of the Technical Preview months ago and eventually upgraded to 10240. I'm not seeing any expiration date of any kind in this build. Did Insiders just get a free copy of Windows 10 after all?
