Windows 10 For DreamSpark Student Verified Account

Hello,

I just installed "Windows 10 Insider Preview" and I have attached my DreamSpark with this newly installed Windows 10 . Now my question is am I gonna get updated to genuine Windows10 automatically with this DreamSpark account ? Or there are another steps for getting the Windows 10 genuine ?

And another query, in DreamSpark software catalog there is a product call Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro. Can I install this product in Windows 10 ? And if I installed this product would I be able to get regular updates for Windows 10 ?

Thank You.

These are the editions that qualify for Windows 10, Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro is not listed as one of them.

What edition of Windows will I get as part of this free upgrade?

When you upgrade, you’ll stay on like-to-like editions of Windows. For example, Windows 7 Home Premium will upgrade to Windows 10 Home.

Windows 72


From Edition To Edition
Windows 7 Starter Windows 10 Home
Windows 7 Home Basic
Windows 7 Home Premium
Windows 7 Professional Windows 10 Pro
Windows 7 Ultimate

Windows 83


From Edition To Edition
Windows Phone 8.15 Windows 10 Mobile
Windows 8.14 Windows 10 Home
Windows 8.1 Pro Windows 10 Pro
Windows 8.1 Pro for Students

“N” and “KN” editions follow the upgrade path of the parent edition (e.g., Windows 7 Professional N upgrades to Windows 10 Pro N).

Some editions are excluded: Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise, and Windows RT/RT 8.1. Active Software Assurance customers in volume licensing have the benefit to upgrade to Windows 10 enterprise offerings outside of this offer.

First of all thank you for replying my query.

But it would be better if you clarify this thing some more. I've started using Windows with Windows 10 . Before that I was using Ubuntu. So do I need to start using Windows with Windows 8.1 for getting free version of Windows as a part of DreamSpark?  

Or,

am I gonna get the free registered version of Windows 10 by using its Insider Preview with the Verified Microsoft Account (Which was verified by DreamSpark) as Microsoft said earlier that with a verified Microsoft Account anyone uses Windows 10 Insider Preview will get a free copy of registered Windows 10?

Thank You.
