Switch from Windows 11 ARM preview (Dev) to stable release?

Occasional Contributor

Just a few days ago, I installed the Windows 11 Insider edition (ARM version) on my Mac.  It's the Dev channel.  I didn't have the option to choose the Beta channel when I installed.  Windows 11 is running quite well in my VM, though this preview version is missing some apps (like Microsoft Store).  

 

If I want to switch to the stable release of Windows 11 ARM (once it's available), how would I go about doing so? Would I need to do a clean install?  I'm not interested in the Dev channel as such, though I'd be fine with it as long as it works well.  I just want a Windows 11 VM. with all the features I'd expect in Windows 11!

I have since discovered a solution. I did a clean install with the 22000.194 build. That gave me not only Microsoft Store but all the Windows apps that were missing from my Dev build. I was also able to select the Beta or the Release Preview channels. I chose Release Preview and opted out of the Windows Insider Program so I would be on track for official Windows 11 releases.
Very well!
There is a lack of official documentation that confirms the right steps to get the Windows11 update - stable.
Thank you for sharing.
