    How about:

    Is Windows 10 Build 10240 RTM?:
    It doesn't matter. It will be updated to GA (and beyond) through windows update.

    Why you cannot do clean iso install without upgrading first?

    Because then you won't be activated. You have to upgrade from a qualifying version of windows for your hardware id to be stored in the activation servers. After that you can clean install.

    But i'm KMS Pico activated, so what's the point upgrading if my key will be invalid anyway? (8.1 Pro)

    I nor others cannot really answer that as are not MS employees. Also see the answer above.

    Just a thought but remember this thread will draw newbies so it may be worth explaining some of the terminology thus...

    RTM (Released To Manufacturing)
    GA (General Availability)

    MS wants to assure the old License is consumed with the Upgrade. The average user will avoid the hassle of reinstalling the old Windows afterwards, ergo one 'old' system less.

    Hehe as far as I have read it is only "consumed" in agreeing to the EULA not in actuality. I have been reading of people running both with the original key that s'posed to be consumed and permanently activated win 10. Not tested it myself.

    What about in the OP...

    How/where do I get Win 10 RTM?

    And for the meantime link to the 10240 thread.

    Would be cool if Op or anybody else, willing to maintain it, morph it to a REPO that gives most relevant info and links to the Rest :g:.

    Then it could be stickied

    I think that is beyond me, I wish there was a way other people could edit the original post too to help...as I see this might just grow into a monster for the next month or so.

    hrm, wonder if there is a "co-op" type mod for the board, would be a great way to assign a few people capable of adding/editing a thread. Nice thought.

    I figure mods and admins can all do it, there must be a way to sign up specific individuals per thread. Might by a rather huge undertaking though. Ive never looked at this boards code all that deep

    Have often thought exactly that too. Threads such as this are a monumental effort for one person to maintain. Some type of group editing facility and a an agreed group looking after the OP would be a plus.

    Yes - this will become a monster and as mentioned attract huge attention from newcomers.
