Do I end up with Insider flights after free upgrade on 8.1 I log in to with MSA registered in the Insider Program?


The question title has it all, but I'll expand. I have two PCs: 

  1. Notebook with Windows 8.1 Update
  2. Desktop with Windows 10 Insider Preview

I log in to both PCs with my Microsoft Account that participates in the Windows Insider program. 

When Windows 10 RTM is available, I'll take advantage of the free upgrade offer on my notebook with Windows 8.1. That is I'll perform in-place upgrade of Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, and I'll  continue logging in with my MSA that participates in the Insider program.


  1. Will I start getting insider flights on my notebook after upgrade?
  2. If yes, do I have any other options apart from leaving the program or rolling back to 8.1?

This is a pretty hot community question, but I can't find the answer in these forums (if one exists, please share the URL).



I'd like to follow up and close the question, since I've upgraded my 8.1 to 10 10240.

It's now clear that you don't end up with insider flights unless you explicitly choose to start getting them on this PC in Windows Update advanced settings. - интересный блог о Windows
