    Finally got my laptop working nicely with Windows 10. Ended up doing a clean install to get rid of any rubbish that could have been left over. Must say... I'm digging the new UI.
    how did you do the clean intall. via ISO or Media tool.
    Doing with this does activate the copy..?
    Mine is an OEM (HP) Version of 8.1
    Nd afraid of doing clean install, that it will end up in non-activated windows.
    Automatic WU Keeps on failing. So far around 10 times. Thinking of downloading ISO

    Go to the media tool and perform an upgrade, one that's done you can find out your windows 10 product key. Make a note of it and do a clean install. This activated fine for me.

    Strange. NVidia has their new W10 driver up. Btw, installed W10 flawlessly on my desktop from the insider site. Today my Alienware notebook said it was ready to install. Install went flawlessly again. Really liking W10. Edge seems much faster than IE11, but I do miss the "home" button.

    Successfully updated an old HP z800 workstation from win 7 pro. Initially tried to force the win10 without success, it later came on its own. No problems, trouble free. I love Windows 10.

    My brother's surface pro 3 received the update first, July 29th afternoon. I'm currently finishing a clean install of win 8 on his desktop. Trying to get 8.1 installed, then we'll see how long it takes to get 10.

    Best Advice I can give is; DON'T FORCE THE UPGRADE and don't assume that because for some it worked well, the same will work for you.

    Download the Windows 10 notification program and simply wait. I got Windows10 today (July 31) if you have other PC you probably will have to wait a few days; the upgrade may work out much smoothly this method, atleast I hope in your situation. :)

    Microsoft is doing the upgrade in waves, hopefully you catch the wave early; live and learn !

    Why don't force? It worked for me. Then after it activated, I did a clean install. Also activated. Works fine, all it does it let you cut in line, it doesn't affect the download or installation.

    Sorry for the slow response.
    I ended up using the media tool, and installing it on my flashdrive. From there I ran it on the laptop, and it ran through it with no issues at all. Remember to first do the upgrade, then you are free to do a clean install. Remember to take down both the old license and new license keys just in case. The clean install should not require you to input any keys at all as it automatically does it. It might fail at first due to the impressive load MS is under. A friend as well as myself were not capable of activating windows for about an hour. It's an issue that should fix itself in due time.

    okay guys I figured something out. apparently my win10 icon notifier doesn't work, and I accidentally went to control panel under 'windows update' on the bottom left and it asked if I wanted to upgrade to windows 10 now, and so I did.

    now my question is how long is this going to take? I have to leave the house for at least 5 hours, will I do a bunch of clicking or will it do this by itself within the 5 hour I'm not home?
