    I know you cannot be an Insider of Windows 10 anymore.
    But is there any other way to get this upgrade now?

    Thanks!

    Not in a microsoft approved way.

    But you can always get a 10240 iso and kms it, but <<< this is really bad advice cause I don't know what will happen on 29th, which is why I haven't installed windows 10 on my laptop.

    Welcome to MDL forum. The answer to what you have asked is currently the hottest and most viewed thread in the Windows 10 section of the forum.

    It deals with all aspects of upgrading to/clean installing and activating Win 10 Build 10240. The thread linked in my previous post.

    Read. :coffee:

    You know wrong. You can still join the Insider program any time, even as I write this. You can also download Windows 10 Mobile builds just fine, after newly joining. It's only PC builds that are currently (temporarily) not available for download.

    You can upgrade from 8.1 to 10 and it will be activated , I tired this i installed the windows 10 ISO with a clean install on my surface pro and it wasn't activated, then i clean installed 8.1 then upgraded to 10 and it was activated then i clean installed windows 10 again and it was activated when skipping the cd key part. There is a chance that your upgrade will work but there is also a chance when it hits the 29th you may lose your activation.

    This is true. Just dowload the esd of the compatible upgrade version and convert to iso then upgrade. I don't think you will lose activation on the 29th though. It should keep track that you upgraded from a legit 8.1 and remain activated IMO.
