Windows 7: Why WU Reserved Win10 in a Win8.1 System Using a Win7 KB Update??

Why WU Reserved Win10 in a Win8.1 System Using a Win7 KB Update??

I've got a question for the Pro's ...

This is regarding my ASUS Tablet with Windows 8.1 Professional x86 installed (Windows is activated of course).

The Tablet currently has Windows 10 reserved and after looking at this post, i took a curious look at the KB used to reserve it and noticed that KB2952664 was applied .

Can anyone let me know as to why Windows Update applied KB2952664 to reserve Windows 10 when that is a Windows 10 Reservation for the Windows 7 x86 systems ???

I am pretty well versed in Computer Hardware and Software (though i am no Master in those fields) and this is kind of a confusing update applied.

I am all ears LOL !

Thanks a bunch!

I'm not sure why Windows applied that update but the update to reserve Windows 10 is KB3035583 for both Windows 7 and 8.1.

Win7 to Win10 Possibilities?
Anyone exploring the possibilities of moving from Win7 to Win10 upon release. Anyone with experience with Win10 can share insights for Win7 users - probably done before, but haven't seen much lately (mainly just Win8 to Win10). Thanks gumboman
