    skipping "reservation" wait by using media creation tool?

    I've done the upgrade on my computers just fine. My mom gave me her laptop to upgrade for her. But she needs it back soon. With the upgrade "app", I reserved the upgrade. But I'm not sure how long it will have to wait. I have the installer on USB, since I used that for my clean re-install on by two computers. Is there a way to skip the reservation wait? Or does Microsoft require the upgrade to be "cleared" in sense in order for the upgrade to work or to be activated?

    10 (Free upgrade)

    I couldn't wait for Microsoft.
    I installed all my computers with the Media Creation tool.
    All upgrades and clean installs activated properly and went without a hitch.
    Go ahead and start work on the upgrades!
