    Did you get an Insider MSA?

    that is exactly why i dual boot two partitions of win 10. one is upgraded, and the other is a clean install each time, to see the differences. but got to keep that upgraded one.
    What happened was I had Windows 7 on hardrive that came with laptop. I did upgrade to Windows 10 on older drive but I have bought new 240gb SSD drive. On SSD I just installed Windows 10 build 10166 using ISO (Clean Install). I am now changing back to Windows 7 restore the image on SSD drive and install insider via Setup (mounting iso 10166) to Windows 10.

    whoa hause, you might have a better plan here. if you still have the old drive with your upgrade on it, you can reinstall it, make a macrium image of it, and move that image over to the ssd. then you don't have to give up your win 10.

    so do you still have to older drive with the upgraded win 10 on it?

    Not sure what's meant 'if you're upgrading from windows 7 at this stage as I didn't think that uSoft were rolling out that option until 29 July.

    I upgraded from a trial version of Windows 10 Enterprise 10166 & would expect to be able to activate build 10240 for use until it's declared expiry.

    That represents a change in policy, then. For people who didn't 'reserve' a copy, I can see it taking months, for those who did, well, what was the point? I see 3 groups of updaters now: Insiders, Reservists, and people who decide after 7/29 and within one year to update. I wonder how it's really going to go....

    Yeah I Do have old drive I haven't thrown it yet. That drive is so slow so many bad sectors, not sure if its worth putting back in. Whats macrium image? and whats MSA i was asked earlier. I use Acronis True Image to back up images, I didnt create an image from old drive because it was dying, didnt want to copy bad image to new drive.

    it will be a mess for sure. there will be some pissed off people who have to wait, and wait. but considering what gabe said on one of the last messages, it will go out in stages, and take a while for some to get it.

    msa is a microsoft account. you need that, of course. but it is definitely worth putting the old drive back in. macrium is a free program you can download, and it can make a full copy of your windows ten on the old drive that you upgraded. then you take the old drive back out, and put the new ssd back in. load any copy of windows on it, and then download macrium again. once macrium is installed, just restore the image and viola, you have your upgraded windows 10 on your ssd, and it only took a few hours. where if you go your route, it could take a very long time before you ever get your windows 10 upgrade.
