    Calling all insiders, who have successfully installed windows 10


    And how did you go about doing so.......

    Im currently running build 10240, but I preferably want to clean install todays release. I have the iso downloaded, But I'm afraid my 8.1 pro key wont activate.

    please comment if you have successfully installed todays iso on one of your insider computers.

    You do not need a key to install.
    Log in with your microsoft account after your done and windows will be activated.
    Did this myself a few hours ago.
    Good luck.

    Can I create a local account first, then log in with MS account to activate and then switch back to the local account?
