    I think I'll use one of my old Technet W7 keys to upgrade to W10, but also stay on the Insider Program. I figure that way I'm good either way.

    Oh Comp World is supposedly the authority on everything. I heard that on The Radio. Sorry you right I goofed up.
    Oh, yeah, Gary (tongue in cheek), Computer World, PC World, Neowin, Win Supersite, Softpedia, and a whole raft of others are the cat's meow on getting it right.

    Some of these have cleaned up their acts and some have gotten worse at reporting. Some used to be little more than leak sites but have cleaned things up just a little bit.

    Regardless, as we've all learned in the past few days, not even Microsoft can always get it right. Until we get a EULA to agree to, nothing's written in stone. At least as far as I'm concerned.

    What are you reading that we're not?

    Are you saying that if I upgrade Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 that I cannot stay in the Windows Insider Program?

    OR is the following what you're talking about?

    I have Windows 8.1 on one partition and Windows 10 (registered Windows Insider) on another partition. Are you saying that if I upgrade my Windows 8.1 partition to Windows 10 free upgrade that I can no longer be a Windows Insider? That I can no longer have Windows 10 on my second partition?

    Are you sure about that? It makes no sense.

    In general, Microsoft has always said that you can't use the same license for two different current installations. You would have to delete Windows 10 to install your older OS, or upgrade (or delete) your older OS to Windows 10. If you use two different licenses, then it's not an issue.

    However, this is the legal answer. The technical answer is that nothing physically prevents you from doing it.

    She would not have a key for the second install would she. She would just be testing flights?

    Windows 8.1 upgraded to Windows 10 will consume the Windows 8.1 license. This is the commercial product with your Win8.1 license upgraded to a Win10 license.

    The Technical Preview releases have their own licensing agreements and activation keys (most of the time they are automatically activated).

    They are separate and distinct. There is no reason that you cannot run both on the same machine in a multi-boot environment. You're doing this already with an Win8.1 license and the TP key/license.

    That's my read ...

    Why not? I haven't seen anywhere that I can't.

    What Bart said makes sense to me. Wynona is also right.
