    oh, so it says , you can skip product key, i didn't try that.
    Remember that you have to do the free upgrade first from Windows 8.1 before doing a clean install otherwise your Windows 10 won't get activated.

    Won't work if trying to do a clean install, only work if upgrading an existing Windows 7, 8.1 PC, using ISO,
    many asking on Ten Forums.
    I think the thing here is that you'd have to upgrade first to Windows 10 and after THAT you'll be able to do a clean install by skipping the Windows 10 key prompt. It's because the free upgrade will get your version of Windows 10 activated on your machine and this info will be stored when you want to do a clean install, thus making entering a Windows 10 key obsolete.

    I'm still surprised how Microsoft is saying we should wait for the notification while it's offering the ISO to upgrade directly.

    Were the files downloaded to your PC ? Asking why download ISO unless just want a copy for now or later, should be able to get anytime. Figure it's easier with ISO.

    I am able to download the ISO at the moment. But what's weird is that I have the option to upgrade immediately from Windows 8.1. While at the same time, Microsoft and tenforums.com are saying that I should wait to get an alert to upgrade. If I should wait, then why is Microsoft offering me an ISO and the ability to upgrade immediately?

    Oh, we all know, need to upgrade first, no clean install first, not sure how and when that part will work.

    I only have an ISO that I have downloaded manually, I don't have the downloaded folder yet which is supposed to be done by the reservation thing, if that's what you meant. You got your ISO yesterday? So it's not the final release of Windows 10 yet?

    i just want to upgrade at this time , not a clean install.

    if i choose option , "upgrade now" i'm getting, that i can't use all options at upgrade , cause installation files want to install in my language and not in english, which is btw my default language.

    if i choose to download iso file and run setup on DVD under win 8.1 it writes me, that i need to insert 64bit dvd, which i already choose when asking which os i want 32bit or 64bit. (strange).
    i'm running win 8.1 home 64bit.

    You must burn that ISO to a DVD. Otherwise you could choose the option in the Media Creation Tool to make a USB disk if you have a USB of at least 4 GB. Does upgrading work then?

    Yes, that's exactly what I meant. I don't have the files in a Windows BT folder but I have downloaded the ISO. And it says I'm able to upgrade now with the Media Creation Tool. Why should I then wait for my PC to download the files to the Windows BT folder and alert me?
