    Windows 10 Home x64

    Two computers on insider W10, move one to RTM

    I have two computers I've installed W10 insiders builds on, my desktop is Win7 Home Premium SP1 (this one is in my specs) and the laptop is Win7 Pro 64x OEM purchased as refurbished through newegg. It has a Vista sticker on it so I figure it had Vista at one time.

    Basic specs for the laptop, Model: Dell Latitude E6400, Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8700 @ 2.53GHz, 4G RAM and a KINGSTON SV300S37A120G SSD.

    My question is, can I upgrade the laptop from an insider build (10240) to W10 RTM without affecting the insider build W10 10240 on my desktop? I only have one MSA and wouldn't have that one if it wasn't required for W10. I know the laptop being an OEM will tie the W10 install to that device but I don't know if that would affect my insider build on the desktop.

    I want to remain an Insider for right now on my desktop where I'm presently dual booting Win7 and 10. I have the dual boot set up on the same SSD, I used this tutorial Windows 10 - Dual Boot with Windows 7 or Windows 8 and everything works fine, no problems.

    PS The W10 upgrade icon has disappeared from the laptop taskbar since the 29th, it's still present on my desktop. I know the laptop will run W10 since it's running build 10240 right now, the Dell site for the laptop says it hasn't been tested for W10.

    PSS will be away from computer at various times today, errands, finish patio, etc... so my response to any replies may be delayed. Thanks to all who respond

    Sorry for the bump but this is only 2 hours old and already back to the 3rd page, the question may be moot but I'd like some input before I upgrade the laptop to the RTM.

    Nevermind, it's downloading right now from windows update on the laptop, I did a recent (two days ago) image so even if the "go back" function is wonky I should be able to get back to where I was.
