    Welcome to the forums, Nobody. Grab a seatbelt and hang on! It can get exciting, especially now that we've been advised of some of the rules on getting the upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

    Thank You Wynona
    Yes, it is indeed a wonderful thing. Now I can get Windows 10 free my old machine too.
    I've been using WIn10 main PC from the beginning . and I like it.

    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.
    Groze, it's really not that hard to understand. Let's go on the premise that you have one computer with Windows 7 on it. You have created a dual boot system and are testing Windows 10 on the second partition. OK, you have Windows 10 Insider and Windows 7 on your computer. Further, within a day's (or week's) time, you boot the computer into both systems. Or, you have two computers, one with Windows 7 and one with Windows 10 Preview.

    1. You are entitled to one free update to the final version (RTM, GA, whatever) on your Windows 10 system. This system will update on or after July 29 if you have your Microsoft Account connected to it.
    2. You are entitled to one free update to the final version (RTM, GA, whatever) on your Windows 7 system. You have one year from July 29 to update this system.

    Microsoft has said that upgrading from Windows 7 or 8.1 will be free, and is yours to use and enjoy for the supported life of that computer. Those are Microsoft's terms for the free update. Take it or leave it. It is up to you whether you wish to take advantage of the offer.

    After your Windows 10 system has been updated to RTM, GA, whatever, you have the option to continue testing as an Insider or stop testing. Again, it's up to you to continue testing or to stop. I would guess that if you stop testing, the same terms as those for an upgrade from Windows 7 or 8.1 will apply; you're good for the supported life of that computer.

    Edit: BTW, if it were me, I would put the OS(es) I want to upgrade to Windows 10 on their final destination computer. That way, when July 29 comes, you'll be good to go. Of course, this won't apply to OEM systems; those are locked into the hardware.

    That great news, I can keep my triple boot system without having to give up anything. This will be the first time I will have a pro version of windows. Which means, I will also be able to delay updates.
    Yes sir! This is great news for me as well. Now I can upgrade from W10 Preview to RTM and keep my W7 and W8.1 installs as well. Now I can wait to buy a new license for W10, until it's time to upgrade my computer hardware.

    Dual boot - Win 10 Pro & Win 10 Insider (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    Welcome, Nobody! (have to get used to that...) Enjoy the Forum, post, read, help, stay out of the way, whatever you choose! And hi, Wynona! I almost fell into the self-centric trap! I was reading Nobody's post and wondering how he/she could have been using WIN-10 from the beginning since the join date is June, 2015! 9841 to present has been virtually all Tenforums for me, so my humble brain automatically equated Insider=Forum Member! Is there another 10 Forum? One worth the time? (MS stuff excluded).

    This is my plan for when 10 goes RTM. On my Desktop I'm going to upgrade my Windows 8.1.1 to Windows 10 RTM for my main OS and dual boot into the test version of Win 10. My wife's laptop is going to be upgraded to Windows 10. Right now she's using Windows 10 TP. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with my laptops and tablet.

    W10 Pro + W10 Preview
       20 Jun 2015 #68

    If my experience is anything to go by duel booting two M$ O/S,s using the same key on the same computer is a no go.

    Having had installed W8.1pro and W10 on two separate SSD,s the last update on 10130 converted NTFS on my W10 disk to RAW.

    Not to mention my other drive with W8.1 pro needed a Scannow and a Dism before it could become fully operational again.

    Yay, thanks MS .


    I wonder if we'll be able to jump in/out of the Tech Preview, like if there's a broken ass build where the only thing I wanna do is submit feedback for the annoying bug and then revert to Final?

    The last time I dual booted 8.1 and 10, 10 did something to my 8.1 drive. I had the Windows 8.1 drive unplugged when installing 10. Then plugged it back in, booted to 10 then to 8.1. 8.1 then reported errors or something and had to do a repair. It did eventually boot up, but I always wondered what Windows 10 did to it?
