    Just seen a reply from somebody who asked if reserving Windows 10 and when told he has to upgrade by tomorrow, he said:

    But it says:

    1) Reserve your copy of Windows 10 now. It will download once available.
    2) install when you receive a notification after 29 July.
    So what I'm understanding from this is that: as long I reserve my free upgrade before the 29th of July, then I am applicable of installing it after the deadline provided that I will eventually receive a notification.

    I think he is one year out!

    With all the unused win7,8,8.1 keys, I would suggest you to buy MBs and run upgrade of latest Windows 10 and takes in about only 30 mins. all together then sell it later at $200+ price per board. You'll make and they get it!
    It's going to take some doing to go and get one or more mobos, install, and upgrade by end of tomorrow!

    Ok - all that maths earlier on build numbers has frazzled my brain - so they have one hour. Not the Aluetion Islands I think?

    They didn't even want to do that. They wanted some magic trick to convert the keys quick and easy. I basically told them you can't get there from here.

    No, I just found out that the UTC -11 time zone which I thought was not in use is in fact used in American Samoa. It is only pace with UTC -11, meaning I have to correct my earlier post:

    Only places where the upgrade offere ends on Friday are American Samoa and its 55K inhabitants, time zone UTC -11 where the free upgrade offer ends on Friday at 11 PM, and Hawaii UTC -10 where it ends Friday at midnight.

    The other way round?

    No. Think The free offer ends Saturday at 10 AM UTC. In Hawaii, UTC -10, it's Friday midnight.. One more hour in minus, in American Samoa UTC -11, it's 11 PM Friday.

    I'm thinking that should be "2) install when you receive a notification after 29 July 2015."
