Windows 10 is set to be released on July 29th. Ahead of the release date, Microsoft today detailed the upcoming changes to Windows 10 Insider Preview builds. In a new blog post, Microsoft’s Gabriel Aul revealed the upcoming changes to the Windows Insider programs and how Insiders will continue to get Insider builds of Windows 10.
To get future Windows 10 builds after July 29th, Insiders are required to setup their Microsoft Account with their Windows PC. If you don’t have your Microsoft Account connected your PC, you’ll be notified to set it up and then you’ll be all set to get future Windows 10 builds.
Gabe Aul also states that the final build of Windows 10 will get delivered to Insiders just like any other Insiders build and they’ll be able to update via Windows Update. For those wondering about ISO installation of the final build – Microsoft has an answer for you as well. The company states that, “Once you have successfully installed this build and activated, you will also be able to clean install on that PC from final media if you want to start over fresh.”
It’s worth noting that if you’re running the Enterprise edition of Windows 10, you’ll be required to install Microsoft’s Volume Licensing Service Center and activate Windows 10 from there. However, keep in mind that the Enterprise edition of the Windows 10 Insider Preview will not be eligible for a free upgrade offer, but users will be able to activate Windows 10 through an active Software Assurance agreement.
