    As far as I am aware your M$ account only recognise you are an insider, if you have a legitimate O/S installed.
    Not really . . . if you haven't signed up as an Insider but have Windows 10 installed, it will be updated.

    Changing Hard Drives or SSD,s do not invalidate your licence, Motherboards yes, but even this can be overcome with a phone call to M$.
    Not usually I'll give you that but it has happened to me. I had to reactivate about 10 Windows virtual machines as the 2TB Seagate drive they were on went titsup. Not funny at all and a lot of work. All that happened was they were moved from one HD to another brand new one. The virtual hardware remained the same except for the real hardware hard drive. So like I said if you do something to a machine there is always a chance it will need reactivation.

    I think that's a great idea.. I just like stable.. that's how I role. I know I can wait but I just will move over to the RTM on the 29th!
    Seriously you have enjoyed your time getting new insider updates why don't you keep your Windows 10 full release and download VMWare player and run a virtual image and stay with the program?

    Last night my 64 bit Enterprise version 100130 updated to 10162 and lost its activation. No worries I'll just put in the key from the Technet website. Key not valid. Tried everything I knew and nothing. It seems when the latest version is not activated you cannot change wallpaper, theme or do much at all as it tells you to activate to use that function. I was locked out of my Virtual Machine. 3 M$ representatives later after giving them this number and that number they decided the upgrade broke 10 and for me to try again. So I am.

    Look at Post #306 for the Keys.

    Yeah Thanks. That was one of the keys we tried last night. Somehow the upgrade got corrupted and I have deleted it completely and I am trying again.

    There is no such thing as "legitimate O/S" for Windows 10 Preview. It's FREE at the moment as a stand alone OS. Everyone can download and install it.
    Regardless, the updates I'm talking about are those bug fixes and enhancements from Windows Updates. I don't know what kind of update you are referring to.
    According to Gabe the M$ spokesman it is no longer possible to have W10 Preview without a legitimate qualifing O/S from version 10159 onwards.

    Your quote from post 65... "I was thinking about deleting all the installed updates"...later changed in post 68 to uninstalling.

    As you cannot have either W7/8 and W10 Preview operating together in the same partition, only as a dual boot, by deleting or uninstalling ALL updates would leave you with a blank partition.

    Not from Preview 10159 according to GABE, you must have a M$ Account.

    You're right. I don't know what I was thinking. You have to be running the Preview with your Microsoft Account connected to it before you will get any more updates.
