    Hello all!

    Sorry about this thread but I think that it is very important for lots of people! Sorry if it is duplicate but must be remembered.

    There is missed one very strong point. Everyone which tested provided feedbacks or give some valuable information about Windows 10 and registered PC in Microsoft servers must be activated! Not all upgraded from Insider Preview to Retail build when Windows 10 released!

    Please everyone provide about this feedback to Microsoft!

    I think that I am not only one which tested provided feedbacks but missed to upgrade to get Windows 10 Retail activated which was free from Insider Preview to Retail!

    So you say that if you never have activated an RTM but only testbuilds you miss out on free upgrade after July do I get this correct ?

    You know that the activation on windows 10 is HWID related i guess so if you would install the RTM it would auto activate with the activation servers based on your computer id number or am I wrong ?

    I tested installed Windows 10 RTM and it don't activates automatically!! And this means if you missed to upgrade and installed RTM as clean installation Windows 10 will not be activated. And this is the problem!

    If your Insider install shows activated with Digital Entitlement, you are good for the life of the hardware. If you are just going from one not activated insider build to the next, you can probably continue doing that forever as well. Some people actually enjoy doing a clean install every 29 days.

    If I am not mistaken, Windows Insiders are activated through MSA-Microsoft Account, Not HWID
    Thus you must upgrade like everyone else, with Win 7, 8, 8.1 key code and not on same partition as Insider build.:D

    I don't get the point of this thread. Insider preview builds use the same HWID or oem:Dm activation as so-called "RTM" releases of 10.
