    Quick reserve question

    I am running Windows 7 and have reserved Windows 10. If I reinstall Windows 7, will I keep the reserve?

    Note- I would be using a USB that has gone through the media tool provided by Microsoft to install win 10

    I wouldn't be concerned with the reserve date, a week after it was released I hadn't received the win10 notification that it was ready for download on any of my 4 computers.

    The whole reserve concept was silly anyway, just go to microsoft and use their media tool to install win10 anytime you want, now only can you install direct to your computer via the tool but you can also make a dvd or usb of win10 as well.

    microsoft win10 media tool here : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10
