    I am new to this. Can someone answer me that If I upgrade from 8.1 to 10, my downloads, documents, etc folders stay as they were? I took backup of all those with Image Backup. But I don't want to restore all this after I upgrade went perfectly.

    So cool to see this thread have so much action! As promised, I'm going to be giving away some sweet Windows Central goodies. How about 10 t-shirts for every 500 comments on this thread? Now, that's not the go-ahead to get all spammy. Just keep doing what you're doing and tomorrow (Wednesday) I'll come back and choose some random contributors to win their own WC shirt.

    Having some issues... My Windows 10 started installing and then failed when (still on Win 8.1) preparing to install.
    Now, the update (Win 10 will be installed when ready) doesn't appear, but my reservation is still existing.
    I can see the $Windows.~BT, and it seems complete. Can I just press the setup.exe inside it? Thanks. ~From the UK. ~Win 8.1

    Like I already posted, these steps got Windows 10 to start properly installing for me:

    What this error means is, your Windows 10 installation folder is unfinished and/or corrupted. Now, how do you fix that?
    1. Go into "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" and delete everything in that folder.
    2. Now, run the command prompt as an administrator. Type in "wuauclt.exe /updatenow".
    3. Go to your Control Panel > Windows Update and your Windows 10 should start re-downloading from scratch, hopefully without flaws this time
    Seriously, stop waiting and just do this. You can get it done tonight! :)

    This is the closest Microsoft Store where I live, but I won't be able to make it to the store for this event.

    Is anyone from the Cleveland, OH area going? I'd love to see some pictures if you go.

    I give up. Internet in China is to slow + switching from vpn to normal connection is making some troubles i think ;').
    Gonna give it a try in my appartment tonight. Let's hope the internet there is gonna be good enough.

    Good luck everybody.

    So I've finished installing 10. I'm currently at the "Hi there, welcome back!" screen and whenever I click next, the PC just freeze. If I click some more, it goes into a busy state, the screen grey out, then all go black, and PC rebooted to the same scenario. Any idea guys?

    I got my Windows 10 Pro all installed and it's just so great :) Also Minecraft Windows 10 Edition. Still disappointed Minecraft Windows 10 Edition doesn't have split screen 2 player like the console versions do.

    Literally 10 reboots later now I'm able to go to the next screen. Weird
    And now it freezes at WiFi screen. This OS is more unstable than I thought.

    I don't need to go sleeping because at my location it's 10 a.m. and I was already awake from 23:50 p.m to 5a.m. but nothing came to install i hope it will come soon

    I went to the Windows Insider page to get the Downloader/Media Creation tool and it flawlessly downloaded the ISO for me in about 20 mins (thanks to my 3MB/s internet connection). Admittedly it's kind of a moot point considering that I'm already running the RTM and things are working fine, considering. Of course, I want installation/recovery media on hand in case of inevitable disaster or reinstall. I just have to wonder about the ifs and whens of whether the activation will expire at some point. (ugh)

    (P.S. I DO have my Win 8.1 serial firmly in hand.)
