comment Can I upgrade to Windows 10 from my OEM Windows 7 Pro Dell without install media which is currently running Ubuntu 14.04
AFAIK, the only edition of Windows 7 not eligible for free upgrade is Enterprise. Not sure about Windows 8, but I'd imagine its the same way.

comment Can't active Sysprepped Windows 10
Hmm, I can access the product key by using slui 3, however I am then informed that that key cannot be used. The strange thing is I have activated a different machine, with the same type of key (Refurb key). I also noticed initially runnin slmgr.exe -dli showed the machine had a key installed. Apparently ReArm=1 was set in the unattended.xml file, which is never good in production. Still trying to solve.

I think I just going to try and respin the image and see what happens. The PCs this is being deployed on were all previously activated with Windows 7, and we are doing clean installs, not upgrades.

comment How to map a virtual COM port to a physical USB port?
I agree. Having run in to this problem before I ended up just using an adapter cable and buying a printer. There definitely is a need for a software based solution to this.

comment How to map a virtual COM port to a physical USB port?
Just to clarify, you have software that can only print to a COM/LPT port. Your PC lacks LPT/Serial ports and you want to print via USB cable to a USB printer.

comment Is it possible to use HDMI out and DisplayPort with daisy chaining simultaneously?
I don't know of any 'offical' sources, but I know that HDMI simply doesn't support daisy chaining. That is one of the reasons DisplayPort was created. 1 HDMI port = 1 HDMI monitor. DisplayPort chaining seems to be more dependant on the monitors themselves rather than anything else. That's just been my experiencing working in company that began adopting DP very early.

comment Modular Power supply, using other types of modular cables?
Just follow the wires from the power supply to the plug. You should be able to easily see if any cables skip pins or combine with another wire in a pin. 6-pin connectors are common, so I wouldn't think you would have any issues just plugging it in
