    I've removed the Windows 10 insider preview installation I had, and gone back to Windows 7. The preview I was running was a direct upgrade installation from Windows 7, and the Win 10 installation was listed as Activated in OS system details.

    Since going back to a fresh installation of Windows 7, and after installing all updates, I no longer receive an upgrade reservation notification for Windows 10.

    Would that be because my Windows 7 key is already identified as having received the free Windows 10 upgrade? And is this key, captured from Windows 10 insider preview 4 days ago, my official Windows 10 license key, including for the official release?

    It is a different key than the one I have for Windows 7.

    I'm removing Dell software from PC. Would any files/programs with Dell as part of the name cause me operating system problems i.e Dellprof, Dell Audio

    Thank you for your reply.

    Clean install may be my final answer. Will I lose my Windows 10 license if I do it?

    WIndows 10 upgrade activation for previous Windows 7 Enterprise (previously licensed)

    Enterprise can only be upgraded through the volume license center. You need to contact them

    If you are running the Enterprise edition of the Windows 10 Insider Preview, to upgrade to the final release of Windows 10 Enterprise you will need to download and activate it from

    Volume Licensing Service Center
    . As a reminder, the Enterprise edition of the Windows 10 Insider Preview is not eligible for the free upgrade offer and can only be upgraded to the final release of Windows 10 through an
    active Software Assurance agreement.

    Is this my final Windows 10 license key?

    1. Probably no. I installed windows 8.1 twice and even after i upgraded the first installation to windows 10 it asked me to reserve windows 10 during the second installation (but i had to force the "icon" to show up with the bat-file)

    2. Again probably no. As far as i know there is nobody who has a unique windows 10 key. They all seem to be generic. You could google the 5 last letters/numbers and probably find it on different websites.

    PS: Product-ID and Activation-Key are two different things *Wink

    The activation key is the key you use for Windows 7, 8, 8.1.
