Windows 10 Pro flash drive from Microsoft.

Just asking if anyone has bought the Windows 10 Pro flash drive from Microsoft. It should just be a bootable drive to install Windows from on a new PC, but do they give you a license key (in case the flash drive / install doesn't work and you have to try again some other way). Thanks!

I originally bought Windows 10 Home on a USB flash drive. Yes, you get a key, that is what you are really buying. You can reuse the flash drive to re-install if you need to. That being said, after you get the key, making your own installation USB with the Media Creation Tool works a lot better, as you can keep the installer updated.

Yes: Windows 10 Pro USB Unboxing

NB: The most recent version (Creators update) has slightly different cover art on the box, compared to the video.

That's what I was hoping, thanks for all the info!
