    Windows 10 Upgrade


    I installed Windows 10 Technical Preview on a test laptop a while back. Being the impatient person I am, and since I am in the insiders program, I would like to take advantage of it and get Windows 10 installed on my main PC early. If I download the latest version from the insiders program and upgrade my main Windows 8.1 system, when an official ISO comes out will I be able to do a clean install without issue? I don't want to get stuck because somewhere along the way my authentic activation code didn't take properly.

    Everyone starts getting queued on the 29th for 10. There is a work around if running the Tech or RTM. If the laptop came with 8.1, reinstall it and then you will get 10 under the current key for 8.1.
