    No word yet on whether CD Keys from win7/8/8.1 will get burned when used for a fresh install?

    Win10 is great, imo--makes Win7/8 seem downright pokey & sluggish in the GUI department. Start Menu is a great improvement imo on the Win7-style menu--if you like single column width and no tiles as I do (and of course huge improvement over 8's no-s-menu...;)). Wife's machine is running 8.1x64 and was on it today and couldn't believe how pokey it seemed compared to Win10x64--and Win7 is even pokier than 8.1...! Very nice--I'm completely satisfied--and of course the price is unbeatable. Game compatibility couldn't be any better--My sizable library of games both new and some dating back ~30 years all run without a hitch--much better backwards compatibility than Win7/8. I installed 10240 this pm and suspect it is the RC--nice. This one's a keeper...Don't miss 7/8 at all, and for awhile there I wasn't sure I could say that...!

    If I use a retail license of Windows 7 or 8.1, which can be transferred from one machine to another, to upgrade to Windows 10 for free can I then transfer that underlying Windows 7/8.1 license to another machine and upgrade it to Windows 10 as well since Windows 7/8.1 is no longer in use on the other machine? (23 June 2015)

    NO

    Is it true that the free upgrade to Windows 10 retains the properties of the license that was on the upgraded Windows 7 or 8.1 system? In other words if I am on an OEM system from a manufacturer such as Dell, HP, ASUS, Acer, etc. then the system that was upgraded with the free Windows 10 upgrade is still licensed as an OEM system? What if I bought a retail license that was purchased online or in a store - does the system upgraded to the free Windows 10 upgrade remain licensed as a retail license? (23 June 2015)

    YES

    If I purchased my copy of Windows 7 or 8/8.1 as a retail license from a store (brick and mortar or online/digital) and I upgrade to the free Windows 10 can I transfer that to a new computer under the retail licensing? (23 June 2015)

    YES

    If I built my own computer and purchased an OEM licenses for that hardware from a store (either brick and mortar or online) then does that OEM license transfer to the Windows 10 upgrade after 29 July? (23 June 2015)

    YES

    Can I transfer that OEM based Windows 10 upgrade to another computer? (23 June 2015)

    NO

    Does the Windows 10 free upgrade offer only last 12 months from 29 July 2015 to 29 July 2016? (22 June 2015)

    Just a copy paste from a quick search, read more info.

    Thanks for the links. I've been having trouble getting windows 10 preview to log into my MS account with 2-step verification on to get the update (after I approve the change with my phone app it doesn't complete). I'm not what is going on as everything else attached to the account works fine with two-step verification enabled.

    Use this .iso for clean install, PM later for a tool.
    https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=7C7DD546B04A1C09!544&authkey=!AEmy04mbEOiBAkM&ithint=file,iso

    Or you can sign up for the MS insider win 10 account and log into windows via that account and have beta updates forced to you for free win 10.

    Enterprise edition has a memory test tool, cool! I have yet to install that edition until today, has enterprise always had the ability to run a memory test?
