    Oh and I get to keep Win8.1 as a back up if I need it later on for some reason or for another PC.
    BunnyJ, what do you mean by your last statement? My understanding is we will have to use the Product Key, in my case, from Win 8 to activate the July 29th version of Win 10.

    So we will only have 1 active version running at a time, right?

    Also, others have commented to my post and confirmed what I need to do when it's time.

    Lastly, a tutorial on what to do for the 29th could be helpful if there isn't one already. Just a thought.

    Allegedly, it will be possible to use the Windows 10 Free Upgrade and the Product Key, (from which the upgrade was verified), on another machine, (possibly another partition?), simultaneously but, you will need to contact MS Support to have the Product Key re-activated for the previous version.

    Windows 10 Insider Preview

    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.
    Sounds good to me, Alpha. If we want to continue testing, we have to play by the rules Microsoft sets out. Sometimes we may not like it, but that's the way it is. It's really quite simple.

    This paragraph gives us the rules for continuing as an Insider:

    If you don’t have your Microsoft Account (MSA) connected to your PC, starting in the next build you’ll start seeing notifications asking you to do so. You’ll need to connect the MSA that you registered for the Windows Insider Program with (and accepted the “Microsoft Windows Insider Program Agreement”) in order to continue receiving new Windows 10 Insider Preview builds (both Fast and Slow rings) from Windows Update. If you already have your MSA connected to your account on your PC, then you’re all set. We’re introducing new infrastructure in Windows Update to help us deliver new builds more effectively to Windows Insiders, and ensure that we’re flighting builds to people who have registered and opted in to the program. Connecting your MSA also allows seamless access to Windows Insider-only functionality in the Windows Feedback app and Insider Hub too.
    The paragraph below gives us the exceptions to the rules:

    This change is for the Windows Insider Program ONLY, and is specific to how we’re delivering the
    Insider Preview builds. Once available on July 29th, you do not need an MSA to upgrade Windows 10 on your Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 PCs if they are not receiving Insider Preview builds. You will not be required to use an MSA on
    new PCs that come with Windows 10 preinstalled or clean installed from media.
    Some features in Windows 10 do require an MSA to use, such as downloading apps in the Windows Store

    This is great news for Insiders.

    Anyone know what will happen if the preview is installed on two different laptops and using the same MS account?

    Will each get the release on 29th July or just one?
    I surely hope so, Muranb! Because I have it installed on this desktop and three laptops! I'm pretty sure they should all update.

    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.

    DavidY,
    If that really the case, unless someone has a bunch of windows 7/8.1 home or pro disks people wouldn't upgrade to windows 10. With the retail version of windows 7/8.1 you are allowed to transfer to another computer. You have to remove if possible from one computer and put it on the new computer. You might have to call Microsoft and tell them you moved it. That why retail version cost more.

    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.
    I do not have a clue what rmonroe36 are talking about, and and what is the busy nose
