    Really? I must have missed something. I thought insiders didn't have to go back to W7/8.1... crud!

    There's been a huge flip flop on that.. it seems the best way is to go from Win8.1/Win7 to WIn10 which is what I'm going to do.

    You know, that really sucks, to put it bluntly. You can't use a recovery partition, you have to reinstall or reimage.

    The last I saw on the Insiders news said this:

    Getting the final release on July 29th

    Windows Insiders running the Windows 10 Insider Preview (Home and Pro editions) with their registered MSA connected to their PC will receive the final release build of Windows 10 starting on July 29th. This will come as just another flight. I’ve gotten a lot of questions from Windows Insiders about how this will work if they clean installed from ISO. As long as you are running an Insider Preview build and connected with the MSA you used to register, you will receive the Windows 10 final release build and remain activated. Once you have successfully installed this build and activated, you will also be able to clean install on that PC from final media if you want to start over fresh.

    Wow! That is a lot. Thanks for the info. Since 10158 seems to running great, I think I'll just stay with it for now and see if MS pushes out a new Build in a week or two.

    Please calm down geeks, have beverage of your choice and read the most official information available, that from Gabe Aul's blog post.

    @Kari

    So is the correct?

    You can if your original install was upgraded from either windows 7 or windows 8.1 to windows 10 preview. Clean install of the windows 10 you can't. Just remember to opt out of the insider program after rtm is installed, so you wont get new pre-release builds.

    Remember, I wasn't commenting if the person wants to stay with the insider program and I didn't go into full detail either.

    That quote has been revised twice since it was published.

    Windows 10 preview ########

    you can upgrade right from your newest build, and DO NOT need to downgrade back to win 8.1 or 7. i called m$ and got it straight from them. take it for what it's worth. it's really not as complex as some are making it out to be. this is the same as the leaks all over again.
