    I am a Windows Insider and my PC already had 10240 on it from previous install about a week ago. But I downloaded the Microsoft tool and ran the upgrade to get the 29 July version of Windows 10 Pro x64 10240. Everything went smoothly. I also downloaded an ISO for later clean install use.

    The upgrade did leave the following hidden folder on my pc that wasn't there prior to running the upgrade tool , it's 5.79GB in size:

    C:/$Windows.~WM
    Oh your right do you think it's safe to remove this file?

    It is probably just used for the upgrade. But since I am only using 300gb on a 3TB new disk drive, I will leave it alone for now.

    I did mine right at 12 last night the entire install and boot to desktop on Windows 10 took me 20 minutes . the install was an absolute breeze all my drivers work fine i absolutely love the new operating system so far.

    I have it on a SSD with about 30GB free so it would benefit me. I'll try it after I make a image of the drive and not beforehand.

    Upgraded my win7 to win 10 few hours ago by media creation tool.
    Everything went great except some drivers which i installed manually. (I copied the drivers folder from $$windows~bt for backup).
    Now i am refreshing windows to remove all the junk.

    Thanks everyone for your reports. Looks like a mixed bagged as expected. I guess I'll wait until the obligatory consumer-side beta testing is finished or the upgrade deadline, whichever comes first.

    Install on my Yoga 2 Pro seemed to go well. Post-install, screen rotation and keyboard/touchpad issues have been resolved by installing Win10 drivers from the Lenovo site.
