    Yeah, once the official consumer release came on the scene they changed the rules as far as the Insider preview is concerned.. If you were already running an Insider Preview from a clean install, it stays activated as long as you keep upgrading to the next preview. If you don't, activation eventually times out.
    I did a clean install of the very first preview and the second preview, but every other preview has been an in-place upgrade.

    In your case it sounds like a glitch messed up your activation status and now your screwed.
    I reckon that I actually saw it happen.

    I was doing an upgrade (I can't remember which one) and there was a weird hiccup during the process.
    Since W10 worked as expected, after the upgrade finished, I didn't worry about it.

    I'm not running a preview at the moment. I was for a while on my second spare desktop PC, but hardly ever turned it on. I haven't seen anything being mentioned in the new releases that makes me want to go right now and have a look see. That tower isn't even connected to a monitor at the moment. I should probably setup a VM, I just don't have the ambition to do it. If Microsoft actually gets off their duff and does something cool in a new build I might. Until then meh.
