    Just got confirmation to reserve Win10 upgrade

    Not really sure how it will affect my Asus Win8.1 system. Still, I'm going to try to upgrade process and cross my fingers. lol

    BTW, really, suggest the eligibility is & SP1 & 8.1, only. Suggest does not apply, as some think or read, to 8.0

    8.0 can only be done from media, DVD or USB (ISO) not, via the in-place Upgrade that only 7 SP1 & 8.1 can do.

    This is the difference & why the confusion... approach, if 8.0, is not what it is (or can be) for 7 SP1 & 8.1

    Cheers,

    I'm only hoping it is a true upgrade Drew (i.e, my programs like Office for instance don't get hosed). I'm really not in the mood to re-install my programs especially Photoshop CS5. Anyway, time will tell. Yes, I do have Win8.1 by the way; my ASUS came shipped with that. So far it's been a heck of a machine and I'm pretty happy with it. 8.1 and Classic Shell's been good. I'll probably un-install Classic Shell prior to doing the upgrade since supposedly Win10 gives you your startmenu back.

    I just got my "reservation" notice as well.

    It could be a while before it's actually available for download.

    I'll be interested to see if it offers a choice of WU or an ISO for my Win 7 systems.

    Good idea to do a full disk image backup before installing.

    Lyle,

    No different than moving from one Build to another... It's not doing a Refresh where all the User installed software has to be reloaded.

    Not surprised you say that about your ASUS. They are an excellent choice. I have heartily recommend them for a long time. And the feedback from the many I've sold has been so positive.

    No, there sure is no motivation for CS in Windows 10.

    Anyway, yes, a true Upgrade. When one sees how it goes w/ the beta Builds... this ain't your daddy's OS... Upgrading to 10 is on a way higher plane than any such notion or supposedly similar scenario ever.

    Good your ASUS came originally 8.1 for any install beginning w/ 8.0, going to 8.1 is just a matter of finishing, completing, doing, the entire install of the OS.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    "It could be a while before it's actually available for download."

    The closet, most precise, I, personally, will go is this summer. Maybe (likely) July sometime; before school starts, for sure. Rumours of June, ah, maybe not. Later than July, really, doubtful.

    Cheers,

    I also received my GWX nagware notification for Windows 10:

    GWX-1.jpg

    This is the 1st screen of a 6 screen slide show. Ultimately, it points to the following URL:

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windo...earnMore_win10

    More can be had at this URL:

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windo...auxapp_context

    The GWX module shows up in the task bar as this icon:

    GWX-2.jpg

    If you have Sysinternals (or similar) running, you can inspect the running program for additional information.

    You can kill the task but it will come back when you boot. I expect a registry entry update will be necessary to remove it.

    In the previously mentioned material, the following URL is available:

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windo...specifications

    It contains important information. Please read it carefully.

    Microsoft have been more precise:

    Hello World: Windows 10 Available on July 29

    (and come out of the closet )

    Perhaps it has detected that I am triple booting W7/W8/W10 ?

    You don't need to edit the registry to remove the notifications, just check for all or any of the following windows updates and uninstall them.
    3035583, 2952664, 3021917.
    When you're offered them again by WU, just hide them.

    Perhaps you declined optional update KB3035583 on Windows 7 and/or Windows 8?

    First, thanks for the reference to the updates which enabled the GWX module to present the nag window. However, one of two things not noted in these updates, is clearly in place: 1) the new GWX screens had a timed or dated release with content already provided; or 2) a behind the scenes Windows Update was performed to provide the screens and/or release for presentation to users. Microsoft could have been more open about this (maybe this is why my Windows Update history disappeared).

    Yet, information is now available that we didn't have before. Looking forward to MORE information that we need in order to make a sound decision.

    Easy enough to just hide the icon if you don't like it. If you have no intention to upgrade, then I suppose you can un-install the KB that's causing the nag, but I decided to just hide mine. I do hope Win10 is as good as I think it will be. I do have friends that have Win7 but I cautioned them to not jump the gun just yet. My Win8.1 should hopefully update flawlessless (crossing my fingers).
