    And that is why I'm not bothering to upgrade the bios again. Ludicrous that simply upgrading a bios loses Win 10 activation. happened to me before.

    GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 - F7a is still not work with memory slot 3 I'm not sure this issue related with BIOS or hardware.

    Hi there. It's just a guess... but maybe the win 10 activation is getting lost because of a special situation whereby Gigabyte are enabling Thunderbolt 3 onto the newer Beta BIOS of gaming 5 and up. I say that because my Gaming 3 is fully upgraded to latest beta BIOS and did not get thunderbolt 3 function. And my win10 activation is still fine / OK.

    If that were the case then gigabyte could not give you your cake and eat it, since the intel certification took time after the boards were released. However Microsoft itself should work with Gigabyte to make a special allowance for the situation. e.g. let those affected users re-activate their win10 copies by telephone etc.

    I think that's probably the best option going forwards.

    But (for me) I have a different question: what happens to my win10 OEM license key if I have to return / RMA my board back to gigabyte for other reasons? Presumably it's lost and I must pay another £15 for a new windows 10 oem license?

    I have z170 Gaming 7 with oem wins 10 and I didn't lose my license? So there goes that theory down the drain.
