    I've only just woken up (so I might not be reading the article correctly).

    Are MS saying that to remain in the Insider program, you have to permanently convert your existing W10TP Local Account to an online one?
    Kinda looks that way, but I have my Microsoft Account connected to Windows 10 Technical Preview anyway. I think they have us with the "Microsoft Windows Insider Program Agreement".

    Don't we have to be online before we can get new builds?

    Sorry, can't help myself. But with a free Win10, Mr. Nobody becomes a Busy-Body.

    Nah. Since way back in the 40s, 50s and 60s, a Busy-Body was someone who poked their long nose into everyone else's business.

    VM & Final Release


    Another thing.
    I originally (clean) installed W10TP as a VM.

    Does that mean my VM will update to the final version of W10, but it will be unregistered (and can't be activated/registered)?

    I think you will be able to do that as well but still have to have a Microsoft Account but you will have to choose VM or Hard Drive. This also brings up another question. The builds that upgrade from ten preview to release do you have a right to move it to a new computer if removed from a previous computer?

    The short is no, Groze.

    1. this is not the hard drive that I want the final build on so that means I'll need to activate and do a clean install on the drive of my choice....correct?

    Thanks,
    Greg
    Let it upgrade, then make a system image and re-image it to the disk of choice. Hail Macrium!!!

    If I understand what you are saying. If you want transferable rights you have to upgrade from windows 7 or 8.1 full retail version to windows 10.

    I think that to get rights to transfer to other hardware, you need to go out and buy a copy of Windows 10. If you had a spare licence of 7 or 8.x to install, then in the first year you could install that and upgrade, but after the first year I think all the free options are locked to hardware.

    You could keep both local and MS account if you wanted. I think that having an MS Account will mean that you'd keep a permanent licence on that hardware.

    It's not clear to me whether, once you've activated with RTM after 29 July, you need to keep the MS Account going - my guess is that you might be able to clean install and it would still activate without the MSA but I'm speculating.

    The way I see it, the whole deal with the having to have an MSA account and logging in with it, is so only registered Insiders get the free upgrade to RTM. It will weed out those that didn't sign up and pulled a leaked build off of the Internet, and clean installed that. They aren't true Insiders. Those that do not want to use a Live ID, ever, not even to sign up for the preview.
