    But didn't Microsoft say I should wait for an alert for upgrading when the reservation app has finished downloading the Windows BT folder?

    I recommend you to make a USB disk with the Media Creation Tool if you have a USB disk of at least 4 GB and do the upgrade from that.

    That's what I find weird. I didn't get any alerts and the Media creation Tool is saying that I'm able to upgrade right now. How is that possible?

    So files downloaded and no alerts...hmm. ? Maybe because doing other way at same time or no ? Files just downloaded today ? Should go to ten forums, a lot of talk there and answers too.
