Windows 10: Opting In & Out of Insider's Preview Builds
Turns out using an image & copying to another partition on the same drive (wanting to enable 2nd Windows 10 partition to receive Insider Previews) is apparently a no-go due to the fact that your apps will point to the C: drive & will not work on 2nd partition. Furthermore, you will have to enter the BIOS to set which partition to boot to. This is what i've read when doing research on doing this.
I know i could just clean install Windows 10 Anniversary Update version & enable Insider Previews but i'm not keen on reinstalling all my apps to check how installing the latest builds affects them.
If i am wrong (& you are 100% sure) please let me know. Or, if there is another way to go about doing what i want to do, please share your wisdom.
P.S. Just read on this site How to dual-boot Windows 10 alongside an Insider Preview build | Windows Central that you will need a 2nd licence to install Windows 10 on another partition on the same HD (to test Insider Previews)?

Got this message under Get Insider Builds, under Settings>Update and Security> Windows update> Advanced options.
Tried "Fix Me" button. Restart changed nothing.
Finally found an answer to this that worked; thought I'd share it here.
Error message on my Windows Update page:
"Theres a problem getting preview builds
your preview build settings nned attention. go to advanced options to fix this issue"
I go into advanced settings, and see that my MS Account is linked...
Installation insists on creating a small recovery partition, which I neither need nor want, with each new build starting with 10547. Since I have several Windows 10 install disks, a recovery partition offers me nothing I don't already have readily...
I just finished upgrading my desktop to build 10586, and found that preview builds are disabled by default.
When i go to Preview Build settings and click the "Get Started" button, an error window pops up with the following error code:
