EDIT: Just owning a MC key is not proof of ownership of Windows 8/8.1 is all I'm saying. You can get a MC key without having to have Windows 8/8.1 installed. I got 4 keys just by giving Microsoft an e-mail address.
How do you force Windows Update to offer this new version (Insider Preview)?

The clean install even if activated immediately invalidates the dvd player incentive which is strictly intended for the upgrades only as part of the the free package deal. With 8 and 8.1 you had to buy the Pro edition to get the media support. MS was thinking that since there are so many free players on the web they could strip things out of Windows they had done previously with Vista seeing Fat support gone until ... OOPS! "We have to put things back the way they were!" as they once again keep learning the hard way. 10 is a result of one big lesson from 8! that they failed to learn from Vista from failing to learn from ME... and on and on...
Once you signed up or in and created the new Insider account the system restart follows to set the option to enabled and you go back to set it to the "Fast" setting from the "Slow". Plan on waiting several hours but usually in the first day of seeing the latest build appear in the regular Windows updates list when going to check.
Be sure to set the option there to Automatic so it will come in on it's own! Not only two physical Insider builds are on drives seeing this but a couple of VMs are also seeing new builds upgrade over themselves. That's it! Once you take care of all that you should see them start coming in fast enough. And once a build is on and you want to keep it you can set the option back to Slow if not able to get the iso as seen for the 10565 but not 10576, 10586 builds.
The TH2 was a general release of the 10586 only with a slight twist in the change. It won't accept the key used on the 10586 upgraded from VM that used a 7 key but would carry the activation of the 10586 VM over when that saw the TH2 upgrade take place indicating the key was seen as being in use already despite both VMs being on the same machine.
