    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.
    Insider MSA is all that's required, not a legitimite OS key. Nobody would be an Insider if they had to use their 7/8 key for a more unstable experience AND compromise their privacy.

    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.
    I think something is busted with the activation process (unless they just fixed it). Since 10158 nothing will activate for me, even with MSA, installed on machines which were previously activated OK, etc. etc.

    You are using your key.....the only difference being, as an Insider you have two choices.
    You can choose to opt in or out at any time, opt out and you would be updated as if you had W7/8 installed.

    With build 10162 I used the key that was supplied by MS and not my key.

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit and VM

    I deleted the VM, downloaded 10074 ISO installed that, it downloaded 10159 quit then downloaded 10162 and installed that. That activated fine. Fun times. Could be the servers were overloaded. This is why it may be a good idea to wait for a while before allowing the upgrade to the final version on July 29th. Maybe a week or two until things have settled down slightly.

    Please note....I stated you have two choices...one being a key supplied by M$ and your own key...you takes your choice.

    You can no longer install build 10162 without installing it on a ligitimate qualifying O/S.

    Opting out automatically switches the M$ key back to your key.

    I installed build 10162 clean and not on a qualifying OS. With a clean install you use the MS key and with an upgrade over a qualifying OS you stay activated due to your current Key.

    Perhaps I should have stated as in your case using a clean install... You can no longer install build 10162 without using a ligitimate qualifying O/S.
    But the result is the same....Opting out automatically switches the M$ key back to your key.
