    Looks to me that is a burnable directory what with boot folder and all. May not install 10 clean though without existing OS already in place.

    I thought that to Popeye, looks like all, but probably would not work if i burned this to an ISO.

    Even though it is asking you to reboot will be surprised if it does before the scheduled date tomorrow. Maybe it just won't activate until then.

    I just noticed the "NewOS" folder so that is something don't normally see. Definitely looks for previously installed version.

    You've been chosen as a guinea pig, congratulations!

    So you still are in 8.1 and able to use it though, right? I'd tell you to hold the power button to shut down but going to pass on that.

    Or are you saying when you do reboot it opens 8.1 and then you get the message again?

    in order to activate win10 you have to use the upgrade option - over a prior OS

    No sure install.esd will be there later..

    But here is a C/P

    The final build number consumers will update to on July 29th
    Those upgrading will actually download 10240.16384 alongside the day one patch handsomely titled KB3074683, and will be applied automatically during the upgrade so by the time the consumer lands on the desktop, they'll be running 10240.16405.

    Day one patch for Windows 10 features over 1GB of fixes and improvements (download links)
