    that shouldn't happen.
    are you sure that 1511 iso contains pro version ?

    HWID is OEMRET, don't use VOL iso's. And a Multiple Editions ISO (Home/Pro), not education VOL.

    Code:
    en_windows_10_multiple_editions_version_1511_x64_dvd_7223712.iso
    Yours should be it-IT not en-US :)

    I saw you were crossposting and i concluded you are on 10 education now? What are you trying to upgrade to?

    This. As long as no main hardware was changed on that machine.

    I'm running Enterprise LTSB to avoid those regular upgrades :cool2:. When you bind your activation to MSA there are some chances to transfer the activation in case of a hardware change.

    Sorry for the silly question, but can you still activate Windows 7 with Daz's loader and do an upgrade to Windows 10 to automatically recieve a legit Windows 10 activation?

    yes except for win7 enterprise, this edition needs either license key or kms tools for activation.

    Wow! That was super quick! I was expecting an answer by tomorrow (maybe). Thanks guys!
    I was about to upgrade with only lan drivers. Now I'll install them all, just in case :D
    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the clarification mehdibleu.

    I wonder if you could do that (which you can up to this point), but also link your MS to that license (Reactivating Windows 10 after a hardware change). If that worked, you could go W7(DAZ) >> W10 >> link license to MS account >> be able to fresh install W10+activate using MS account...??

    What is this sorcery MS uses to uniquely identify a PC for HWID? There must be countless of PC's with the exact same HW configurations.

    Every device/hardware has an unique hwid, msft combines some to get a hash for it and it saves it on their servers.

    For example, the hardware MAC address of the network card (and many other hardware components) is usually unique.
