I want to reserve a copy of Windows 10. Ultimately I will install it. Heard to many horror stories to date and want to wait till things settle down before I install it. But to reserve copy, the instructions I read required complete updates to Widows 7 which I have been unable to do.

The link I provided lets you install W10 without needing the updates, and you can perform it any time before July 29th 2016.

Thank you, Boozad. I have downloaded the file.

I do indeed want to thank all of you that have viewed this post and have allowed this old geezer an opportunity to rant.

Surprisingly, I received a call from a Microsoft rep on Saturday and have re-scheduled a phone call for today, Monday. We will see what happens.

An aside: the wife and I will be in Scotland for three weeks attending a wedding and visiting relatives, but I will monitor with my laptop.

Thanks again

Afraid not - it didn't include the CheckSUR.log file produced by the tool.
