    As in title. I doubt their boot times will be quite similar.

    It appears I still need to flash my BIOSes using SLIC2.1 for my "genuine" OEM copy of Windows 7, then start from there.
    What a PITA.:D

    System is still legit, Upgrade only removes WMC.

    All these people upgrading to windows 10 and think there getting it for free because its saying permanent activated on the 29th MS will just black list this key every one is using and only insiders and people that have enrolled in the upgrade offer will stay activated.

    Two Bold NOes in return:

    #1. Generic key is also used in completely legit upgrade installs ... ergo won't be blocked.

    #2. Neither MSA nor the 'Order via GWX are mandatory.

    Generic key is a temp key and will be replaced with a genuine key from your MS insider account or upgrade if you are enrolled, Why do you think they said they will start to slowly roll this out after the 29th.

    I upgraded a old system that i had a old insider preview on it that was activated and after upgrading to 10240 it was activated, this system wasn't linked to any MS account you really think MS is just going to give out free Windows 10 copy's so simply o_O .

    when finished its activated, will see if its still activated after July 29. No key entry needed at all.

    Where i said it would be simple? Activation is still bound to HWID stored on MS Server. Actually no need for unique Keys.

    Yes your system UUID is stored on MS servers so you can reinstall but these not account linked so Keys are still needed for hardware changes and reactivation, With normal OEM keys only one system UUID can be linked to that product key but that doesn't stop you calling up and using it on more than one system its just mean the last system you activated it on that system UUID is now linked to that key, at the moment every ones UUID is linked to a single key which doesn't seem to have the limits of one UUID making its a pre-release key, Windows 10 isn't yet out so there are no Unique keys but this will change though.
