    Question regarding to activation from preview version to RTM


    Hi forumers,

    So far what I knew is those who join for windows insider preview are able to obtain windows 10 for free (before RTM released)
    I registered windows insider preview with my account since win10 still in beta stage (build 10xxx). However, I didn't install and test. Do I still able to install preview version and update it to geniune windows 10 for free? I still having the win10 build 10xxx ISO with me.

    Does the procedure to activate from preview to RTM still remain as the same?

    I'm on the Insider Preview for quite awhile now and have never been given any indication we will get the RTM version free. Do you have a reference to anything that says that?
