I'm definitely going to wait, but isn't the time to upgrade for free limited? The article links to where you can download ISO files if you don't want to upgrade through Windows Update, but it doesn't mention how you go about getting a Win10 key. Do you just use your Windows 7 key during the install?

I thought I read a few weeks ago that the initial update had to be done through Windows Update, then after that you could perform a clean install.

I have three copies of Win7, two home and one pro. The pro version is on my HTPC, and I'll need to find a replacement for Windows Media Center for recording TV before I upgrade it. One is on my current gaming system and the other is waiting for me to build a system for it.

Edit: I found this after clicking through several links:
If you upgraded to Windows 10 on this PC by taking advantage of the free upgrade offer and successfully activated Windows 10 on this PC in the past, you won't have a Windows 10 product key, and you can skip the product key page by selecting the Skip button. Your PC will activate online automatically so long as the same edition of Windows 10 was successfully activated on this PC by using the free Windows 10 upgrade offer.

So what happens when you upgrade too much hardware in your PC and it no longer recognizes it as the original PC that you upgraded from?
