      Re: Opting in to the Canary channel

      If you are currently in the Dev channel, you are automatically opted in to the Canary channel, like it or not, because you’re already on release 25000 or higher. Leaving or setting the Windows Insider level at Dev means that you’ll remain at whatever 25xxx level you’re currently on, because you can never revert to a lower level insider build.

      You must do a fresh, clean install of Windows 11 and opt-in to the Windows Insider program again at the Dev level, which is now using the release 23000 series.

      If, like me, you boot SATA disks for testing and your production OS is on an M.2 NVMe drive, you must physically remove the M.2 drive during the clean install on the SATA disk to ensure that the SATA disk can stand alone with its own system/boot partition. (On virtually all motherboards, it’s impossible to disable an NVMe drive in the BIOS, and you’ll end up with a dual boot configuration in the NVMe’s system partition.)
