    It's worth noting that your Windows 7/8 installation MUST be activated correctly before upgrading to 10. (You don't need to have updates done)
    Also, you need to do an in-place upgrade from 7/8 to 10, then it should activate normally.
    Once 10 is activated, you can do a clean install if you wish. You do not ever specify a product key for 10 installs.

    I had this problem on one of my upgrades. Had to reinstall 8.1, activate with BIOS key. Waited a little while, then upgraded to 10 again (in place). Didn't enter a key in 10 setup, then it activated normally.

    Except it's nothing like that, because the Win 8 keys are not being overwritten with the Win 10 ones...
    Correct. But so far I've only been able to do 3 computers this way... No luck today - getting blocked product key. "Apparently" the activation servers are overloaded.

    Okay, let's take paranoia to the extreme for a second. And how do you know they aren't?

    So how come you're on Neowin? I mean, your data is on their computers after all...

    This has been like this since Windows XP. And frankly, it's a good idea.
     
    A funny bug that I've noticed : if you do an in-place upgrade, but choose to keep nothing, some files are still kept, and when the system logs on for the first time you are called defaultprofile0

    If you're using your Microsoft account, (and you have a valid 8.x license associated with it), it will carry into your Windows 10 load I believe.
