    W10 Insider + Linux

    No, not after the deadline, not for free anyway.
    What you can do now is to make full system backup, upgrade existing system or do clean install as described and make sure W10 is activated. You can return to your previous windows by using backup. Only after that you'll be able to install W10 any time after deadline but than you wouldn't even need to enter any key.

    Thanks,
    You could create a small virtual hard drive (eg 32GB) and install it in that.

    1) Boot from a windows 10 installation usb created with

    Windows 10

    2) Select language etc., and click next.

    3) At install now screen, press shift+F10 to get a command prompt.

    4) type following commands

    c:
    cd\
    md vhd
    diskpart
    create vdisk file=c:\vhd\win10.vhd maximum=32000 type=fixed
    select vdisk file=c:\vhd\win10.vhd
    attach vdisk
    exit
    exit

    Then you can install windows 10 in newly created virtual drive, and activate using old key. Then windows 10 will be reserved.

    To delete it, simply run msconfig and delete boot entry from boot tab, and delete vhd.
