    I would like to know if Windows 10 received through using my Windows 7 Update will be also giving out a product key
    to use later if problems arise. I may have to do a clean install at a later date or will I then have to pay for a Windows 10
    product key?

    The Windows 10 Technical Preview Product Key is the same for everyone. It is only for the T.P.

    We don't know exactly how the upgrade will work until Windows 10 is actually released.

    You can sign up for emails from Microsoft about the upcoming Upgrade, ((meaning the actual working release of win 10, not the Preview))

    Regarding trying the Preview edition>> there are definitely some things to consider!!

    Here's a pretty good read about Tech Preview 10041>>> http://windowssecrets.com/top-story/working-with-windows-10-preview-build-10041/

    And what Cindy posted is very true- nothing is really 100% cast in stone....things might and usually do, change....so, keep informed of the ins and outs of trying on a Preview copy!

    There most likely will be some procedure to do a reinstall, clean install.....after the preview
