    Install Windows 10 after preview installed

    I upgraded my laptop for W7, no problems and activated ok....then did clean install, but for some reason I got hold of a Windows 10 insider preview ISO by mistake....so now I have this installed and activated.....the only option I can see is to do a clean install with the correct ISO, will this still activate ok

    Why can't you just do an in-place upgrade to build 10586?

    thats whT I have done, took a while but it workd and was activated ok
    Just was worried, because I never signed up for the insider program, just obtained the wrong ISO somehow, thought it might throw out an upgrade......but no all ok
