Windows 10 Technical Preview Update thru Win7's windows update

So i found this article Windows 10 Installs Automatically On Windows 7 And Windows 8 - Forbes which says to use this Download Windows 10 Technical Preview - Microsoft Windows. My question is well this windows 10 update delete or change my Recovery partition to win10. if i dont like it id like to use the recovery partition to go back to win7. also does Microsoft know what software or what u do on win 10 tech preview.

im installing this on my pc i use everyday i know they say not to but its time for a reinstall of win7 and i thought id try win10

Don`t do it on your Windows 7 machine. Uninstall the update and hide it, if that`s what you mean.

Installing 10 to your W7 partition should have no affect on your recovery partition, but I wouldn`t chance it, no way.

Install Windows 10 on a separate drive, first unplugging the W7 drive, they do not dual boot well together.

Install 10 in a VM if you really want to look at it, it is nothing special and not worth the effort.

So why are you questioning it, just don`t do it

As I have said, get another drive for 10, unplug the 7 drive.

It`s not worth the aggravation.

All your questions should be addressed at Ten Forums :)

Windows 10 Technical Preview
Is there a way to get the download & install the OS w/o having a Microsoft ID? I want to try out the OS, but I don't want to be forced to use a Microsoft Account or be connected to SkyNet ... I mean OneDrive (that could be bypassed in 8 Here & Here).
