Even if you don't like upgrading to Windows 10 but your PC is qualified, do so before the deadline. You can then revert back to the original OS. This way if you sell your PC or motherboard, it will have the option to install Windows 10 later.

So I joined the insider program to get the anniversary update ahead of the august 2 release, and then went back to production ring.

The enhancements and fixes to edge are indeed welcome.

Any idea if the Win10 digital entitlement is tied to just the "motherboard", or to "motherboard + processor" (saw somewhere that says this).

AFAIK it's the motherboard only

I read that with the anniversary update they're *supposedly* moving to the license tied to a microsoft account, so you can upgrade hardware easier.

If true, that's really nice. I can still remember all the trouble I went through calling MS tech support to reactivate my Windows license on a new motherboard.

After upgrading to a new 500GB Samsung EVO M.2 SSD, I decided to use UEFI booting mode for the clean install of the anniversary edition.

I can confirm that it's a Motherboard only... just replaced everything except the mobo, and did a fresh install - lo and behold, it was activated after it was installed.

It's a matter of semantics. July 29 was the last day Microsoft's offer of free update expires. That means the GWX icon is now gone. But they say if you attempt to upgrade by running the setup.exe from the Windows 10 disk, you still can update. You still end up with an activated Windows 10. I don't know for how long this is allowed.

Confirmed! Tried it on an old Core2Duo.

I picked up the Xeon E5-2670 from the Post Office mid afternoon. At the office, I installed it into the Alienware Aurora R4 motherboard. I proceeded to update the Windows 7 Professional to Windows 10 from an image on the USB drive. I chose build 1511 to install. I finished the update just before the car arrived to pick me up. I was just able to briefly see that it was activated with a digital entitlement. Tomorrow I do a clean install of build 1607 (anniversary ed.). It should change to activation with a digital license.
