    I have an OEM copy of Windows 7 that came with my Dell system. I don't use it, as the system in question runs Linux. However I'd like to download an ISO and product key for future use, should I need to run Windows in the future. From what I've read, the primary way to *get* Windows 10 once its released on July 29, is via the same mechanism that new builds are installed currently in the preview. Will a mechanism to allow downloading an ISO and product key be available after release, or am I stuck with the default way of obtaining the OS?

    Thanks

    Not much info is known yet how MS will handle this.

    I'm also curious as alot of tech savy people want to clean install and do clean installs.

    Furthermore what happens if you need to replace the motherboard due to a fault or increase drive capacity or switch to ssd via the clone method?

    In this cases you need to call and activate, I imagine this may remain the same. However they could change the validation mechanisms with Windows 10.
