    Reservation


    I reserved my copy of windows 10 back in June but still haven't received my notice yet. I really don't want to use the MS tool but I'm getting sick of waiting. Anyone else still waiting for your notice?

    Try shutting off and uninstalling any running software including security tools. Also remove any usb connected devices (camera, flash drive, printer, 2nd monitor... ) and reboot the pc. I've also heard a 2nd hard drive can cause issues when upgrading.

    People have had better luck with the "Upgrade this PC now" option of the Media Creation Tool than they have had with Windows Update. That, and the additional ability to create an installation USB or DVD makes the Media Creation Tool the preferred method to me.

    I have my Get Windows 10 icon in the taskbar but still waiting for my notice. I'm just wondering if I'm missing some file or something that is causing this delay. I reserved my copy of windows 10 back in June so I should have received my notice by now.

    Cans How To Force Your System To Update : PERSONAL TECH : Tech Times

    First of all, go to "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" and delete all files in that location so that Windows Update can start clean. If you have installed Windows on a drive other than "C," replace "C" with the proper drive letter (for instance access "D:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" if your Windows is installed on "D").

    From there on, tap the Windows key, type Windows Update, and click it to open it. Hit the Windows key again to bring up the command prompt and type "cmd." Instead of hitting Enter, however, right click and select "Run as Administrator." Next up, type "wuauclt.exe /updatenow" and again refrain from hitting enter. This command will make Windows Update check for updates.



    Head back to the Windows Update window, select "Check for updates" on the left, and you should notice a status message that says "Checking for updates..." When you notice this message, go back to the command prompt where you typed the command without hitting Enter, and hit Enter now.

    At this point, Windows Update should say that it's downloading the latest Windows 10. As always, however, make sure to back up your data before proceeding with the Windows 10 install.
    Personally, I would use the Media Creation Tool.

    I am also waiting for notification.(W7) I do not want to do a manual update at this time. I right clicked the white windows icon, and checked my system, it is a go, but still no notification. Wonder what might be holding up the notification. In the next hour or so, I am removing all my hdd's/ssd's and have a manual go at it just to verify my hardware is ok. But my goal is to first do an upgrade over W7.

    UPDATE: Might take a little longer, just got W10 version 10525 @ 65% download now.

    3 weeks and still no notification yet. Anyone else still waiting? Really don't want to do it manually.

    Well, you can wait or just do it one of the other ways

    Not sure what`s up with my Windows 7 install on the Gateway either, although I just clicked on the icon it says it could take days or weeks ( no rush ) but the option to use the Media Creation tool works fine, so I wouldn`t wait if you really want 10, just use that option, it`s really no different then the method you`re waiting on.

    The Gateway is an experiment PC that rarely gets used.
