    will i still get it free from insider program to Windows 10

    If you upgraded from a qualifying version to 10158 you will get the RTM as an update.

    if however you did a clean install (no qualifying product) you will still get the RTM but it will have an expiry date, (no problem if you intend to stay an insider), you will continue to get new releases before the previous one expires.

    if you opt out of the insider program you will have to install a qualifying product in order to upgrade for free.



    Upcoming changes to Windows 10 Insider Preview builds [UPDATED 6/22] - Windows Experience Blog

    • Do you want to continue as a Windows Insider and keep getting preview builds after 7/29?
    • Or do you want to upgrade your Genuine Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 system that has been getting Windows 10 Insider Preview builds to the 7/29 release and
      stop being an Insider?
    “I want to continue as a Windows Insider!” If you want to continue as a Windows Insider past 7/29 there is nothing you need to do. You’re already opted in and receiving builds in the Fast or Slow ring depending
    upon your selection. This is prerelease software and is activated with a prerelease key. Each individual build will expire after a time, but you’ll continue to receive new builds so by the time an older prerelease build expires you’ll have received a new one.
    Since we’re continuing the Windows Insider Program you’ll be able to continue receiving builds and those builds will continue to be activated under the terms of the Windows Insider Program. We provide ISOs for these builds for recovery from any significant
    problems, but they are still pre-release software. As part of the program we’ll upgrade Insiders to what is for all intents and purposes the same build as what other customers will get on 7/29, but that will be just another build for Insiders, and those who
    stay in the program will simply get the next build after as well.


    “I want to opt out of the Windows Insider Program on 7/29.” If you decide to opt-out of the program and upgrade to the 7/29 build you will be subject to exactly the same terms and conditions that govern
    the offer*
    that was extended to all Genuine Windows 7 and 8.1 customers. This is not a path to attain a license for Windows XP or Windows Vista systems. If your system upgraded from a Genuine Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 license it will remain
    activated, but if not, you will be required to roll back to your previous OS version or acquire a new Windows 10 license. If you do not roll back or acquire a new license the build will eventually expire.

    Will it still get the digital entitlement?

    An upgrade from Win7 to 10 got you a digital licence linked to the hardware of your PC. It's valid for both 32 and 64 installs, but only for the edition (Home or Pro) that you got when you upgraded.

    You cannot upgrade 32 bit to 64 bit, so you'll have to do a clean install. Make sure you have backed up all your files before you start. You'll also need to reinstall any software, so make a note of any product keys you may need and make sure you have the install media handy.

    Install the same edition (Home/Pro) as you had before, when asked for a product key click 'I don't have one'. As soon as the new install can connect to Microsoft's activation servers and find your digital licence it will activate automatically.
