    I think you do need to worry about not activating. I think you'll need to be activated to clean install and activate after the install?

    IIRC, the Windows Insiders were told they'd eventually get an .ISO (I hope I'm not wrong about that). When that happens, I'm sure it would become available one way or the other.

    As mentioned earlier, you're going to need to get that activation issue resolved anyway.

    I did a clean install, didn't enter a key when prompted, and Windows activated itself.
