I have W10 on other machines from the insider side and an upgrade from W8.1
One could let the notification "Get Windows 10" download with windows update the new OS on their machine, then fake to install.

At the pop-up windows there will be two choices, just click "Later Install", and not "Launch Install" and then hide the update in WU to prevents errors at logon.

Was thinking of the option to later install, but looked like a further option to pick a date was there??? Not sure what errors at logon are since I have not got that far yet.? But I guess that I still have to install it within the first year? Tx

Doing that manner could looks like to have a pre-loaded OS on the machine and then when you're ready you could unhide the update in WU and launch the process.

Errors in Windows Update will be displayed if you cancel the pre-loaded update but do not hide it in WU. You can easily see them in the Reliability Index Score tab and events log.

Today the folder C:\Windows BT had been wiped by underlying processes of DismHost & CompatTelRunner. I wonder if it has something to do with the upcoming update SR1....Will be great if they also stream a new build ISO.

- for anyone jumping from Win7 straight to Win10, there's a heck of lot to take in..

- you'll be dealing with a whole new thing..
- so much to learn at once..

- easy to upgrade, sure
- but expect to be somewhat confused at first..

- great fun, though..
- ha, ha!!

Looks Microsoft have updated the MediaCreationTool (x64 at least)...It's now version 10.0.10240.16423 and before was v10.0.10240.16399.

I'm creating a new key.

I would also have to agree with what most people have to say about upgrading to Windows 10, I did have it reserved just thought it would be kind of dumb to wait for a week or two for it or that is what it said for me at least.

Very easy to upgrade, just download the MediaCreationTool from Microsoft's website, have at least 15GB free on your OS drive and you are fit for fight.

Though upgrading it on my laptop might not have been the best choice, got a BSOD during a movie but it might just have been because it was in Blu-Ray quality and I do know the processor is not fast and strong enough to actually play the movie and then this other problem where when I try to shutdown the system it acts like a reboot rather than a shutdown, I can hear the machine shut down but 1-2 seconds later I hear the laptop boot up again and for the moment the only solution I've found is to manually press down the power button on the laptop..

But otherwise I do love the new OS, especially the bin icon, looks so classy and old.

A rumor I read it's better to use the shut down listing using winkey+X menu or right click the start button ?
Start menu still has a few quirks :/
