Windows 10: Revert back to Win10 from Insider Preview
Revert back to Win10 from Insider Preview
I have a computer that is running Insider Preview 10.014971 Build 1471.
I have a New Computer which I will run the Insider Program on!
How to I revert my old computer back to Win 10 from the preview version as above.
I want to give the old computer to another member of the family.

The only way to go back is to erase the insider preview and do a clean install of version 1607.
Aye! Aye! Commander!
Where would I get ver 1606?
There is a file on Disc C: called Winows.old, I opened the file & it says WinSxS. Does that help any?

What you are trying to say is:
If I installed Insider Preview over Win 10, I cannot revert back to Win10 without out a NEW Win 10 Program?
Is this true?
Wow, I thought I was the old fart.
I guess not (82).
Unfortunately, yes. There is a 10 day "revert back" period, but once the ten days is passed after you install the new build, the only way to go back is to re-install completely.
I started out with A Dec PDP 8E computer Input & Output was by ASCI 8 channel punched tape.
The punch tape was produced & typed out on a Friden FlexOwriter!
The program was written using MS Dos version 01 & MS basic 01, I think!
It was used to run some of the first N/C controlled Machine tools. The Machine controller was either a GE or Westinghouse, both use 8 channel ASCII punched tape! That was during the "Space Race". We had to go to computers to run machines because HUMANS COULD NOT manually run Machine TOOOLS to get the required accuracy required in in the Rockets Used!
That was many moons ago!

I have upgraded all of my one-generation-back Win boxes, but want to ease into 10 at leisure.
As I understand it, the registry is modified at the first upgrade to 10 with the activation "approval", but I am concerned that this will be lost upon...
I had reloaded Win 7 just prior to my upgrade to WIN10. Dont normally like to do an upgradebut I was pretty sure it was still clean. So on 2/14/16 id did the upgrade so I'm in the 30 day timeframe if that makes any difference. I just don't really...
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...
In Settings it says 1511 on my screen by the clock it says 15192
Anyway. I want to wipe my drive (250gb ssd) after I back up what ever I need and do a clean install
Do I need to make a iso to reinstall the insider preview or what is the procdure...
I've downloaed an app from the store and this made my local account to be authenticated against my Microsoft-account.
How can I revert back the account to be a local account?
Thanks in advance
