    So if I heard it right, if you are on the insider builds from a clean install, you can't go full genuine right?
    I know you can continue to be a beta tester and still genuine that way, but no other option.
    btw I did do a clean install, so no way to put in win 7 key.

    So if I reinstall Windows 7 with my key and activate.
    Then reinstall Win 10 preview over 7, will I be all set and not have to worry about activation anymore?

    I'm thinking of sticking with 7 for the month, since Win 10 will be automatically installed next month.
    Don't want to upgrade now from 7 and find out, I need to do it reinstall again or something.

    If you do not want to stay on the insider program after the release of 10 AND you initially did a clean install of 10 TP instead of an update from your legit copy of 7 you would either have to pay for a license or re-install 7 and upgrade to 10 from there for free, yes.
