How to Reserve Windows 10


Yes it is a Free Upgrade and its all above board.
Watching the vidoe, you book it and then you can schedule it.

Your within the guide lines for the spec.

My Personal note on this as amazing as it may look. Is to wait a few months.
I will upgrade but i dont know enough about the pros and cons.
There seems to be an upgrade advisor (Win 10 app) as part of the upgrade, which should tell you what will work and wont.

I've reserved mine for my Win 8.1 laptop but I have reservations. When I run the Check My PC test it tells me that my bluetooth devices (all Qualcomm) might not work after the upgrade.

I think I'll leave it a week or two until after it's available and see what the reports say.

The Get Windows 10 App is available on most PCs running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows 8.1 Update.

You won't see the app if:

Your device isn't running Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1 Update.
Need to check what version of Windows you are running? See here for instructions.
You are running an Enterprise version of Windows which is not eligible for this offer.
Windows automatic updates are not enabled on your device.
Your device does not meet the minimum system requirements.
Your device is not connected to the Internet.
Your device is eligible however, we are still working on updates that may improve your deviceís experience, like getting a new driver.

I'm running 8.1 pro version with media centre. I have the icon in my notification area today inviting me to reserve windows 10. It tells me I will lose media centre if I upgrade. I believe that the upgrade will be like for like, for example I will be upgraded to the pro version instead of the home version.

I see classic shell have released a start menu patch for windows 10 as Ms still haven't got the start menu right. By default you get the start screen but you can change this in settings to the new start menu with live tiles.

The icons appear to have been revamped and traditional look and feel of windows is changing to a minimalist design. The dark mode looks good if it's in the final release.

Windows 10 is set to be the final release as they want us all to be using windows. Updates will be available and download automatically as they come out.

I will test out windows 10 but not on my main PC.

Thanks for your info Mark.

Your Update :

I seen the update to day.
If you click on the 3 horizontal lines which is in the top left side of the update prompt window, it will fly out like the image below.

I clicked on check my pc and it said i will have to uninstall my Internet security and firewall before i can upgrade. (It can be reinstalled later). But its worth checking what you need to prepare for or even later why it wont update for you.

I also have a few programs that wont work correctly so i'm happy to wait until software is more compatible.

I need to dig and find out how long this update is available as it was rumored to be available for the first 12 months. I'm sure we will get lots and lots of reminders if we have not upgraded.

Not found roll back info yet but this is how i would prefer to do it on a clean install.

Windows 10 can be reinstalled cleanly if need be after free upgradeWindows 10 can be reinstalled cleanly if need be after free upgrade

Click Me

For now it just says you can but not exactly how or what you will need to do to do it.

I think this July the 29th will be the day that Microsoft either Ruled the world or killed the world. Imagine if there was a delete all code in the source code !! That's gonna be a mess to clean up.

I want feedback myself before i upgrade, but i do prefer the clean install over an upgrade as it never seems to go as smooth as it should. Anyway the world waits microsoft rolls out its best OS yet or the worst.
