    If MS doesn't allow a clean install from the free upgrade you could do a clean install of 7 or 8.1 update. Do the free upgrade to 10 then install all your programs.

    Sooooo....many questions
    I have a PC that I had installed Windows 8.0 64 bit on, but when Windows 8.1 64 bit came out, Microsoft had changed the specs and it wouldn't run. After some research and a lot of help from Eight Forums, I reinstalled Windows 8.0 32 bit and then upgraded to Windows 8.1. It worked!

    So, it's worth a try if you haven't already done so . . .

    Same here, Bristolian! And I've been an Insider from the beginning.

    Desktop came with Windows 8.0 and upgraded through Microsoft to Windows 8.1 and then to Windows 8.1 Update. No icon!

    Lappy 17 came with Windows 8.1 and has gone through all the regular updates. No icon!

    Both computers installed updates yesterday and today.

    Give it a try, you might be surprised!

    As Heyya said, updates rarely go well . . . and that is exactly what happens to me too.

    I let the updates install and use the computer a day or two to see what does and doesn't work. Lots of stuff doesn't work at all. So, then I do a clean install and almost everything that was wrong is now right.

    Hello Wynona,
    It's really confusing as to why this is happening... I've been reading this thread over at Microsoft, there are a few different cmds to try, but none of them have worked for me:-
    I want to reserve my free copy of Windows 10, but I dont see - Microsoft Community

    Very Best Wishes,
    Bob.

    That's the way I'll go if there's no ISO available. No way I'll upgrade over two or three years' worth of flotsom and jetsom!

Does anyone here believe that Windows 10 will be very likely to come out in June 2015 or is that wishful thinking? I want it now so badly but I would hate to have to wait until September or even July or August. Microsoft needs to speed things...
