Windows Central Question

I saw in the web that you need to reserve first in order to get a free copy of windows 10 that will be released somewhere in July. However, I already downloaded a Windows 10 pro insider preview.

Is my reservation already set? Since according to the site of Microsoft, you need a Windows 7 (SP1) or Windows 8.1.

Thanks in advance that will answer

you don't need to reserve anything, it's primarily for preloading.

if you had a valid activated 7 or 8.1 install underneath, you'll be five.
