My Win8.1 is fully updated and I have yet to see anything like Bob posted in reply #250.
I double and even triple checked to make sure I had KB3035583 installed. It is. From what
I can see from trying the tech preview Win10 in a VM it looks and works great
Any ideas on why I can't reserve my copy of Win10?

There's no hurry I just wanted to know why I don't get the message as shown in Bob's screenshot?  ???

Does anyone know that after windows 10 gets released next month if it will ask if want it to preserve my files and programs or not? Like do upgrade and keep avast, hypercam, etc. Or give option to remove them and do clean install? Or should I reinstall windows 8 and upgrade back 8.1 if I want clean install?

I'll be creating an Image of my C drive just before I allow the upgrade. That way, If I want to go back,
It will be just before it updated to Windows 10.
It will then not need to be a clean install of Windows 8 and all of the updates etc.

I heard windows 10 will wip OEM's recovery partition.. Is this just run off the mill rumour or one that actually is true?

If you get the free upgrade through Windows Update, it will preserve all your programs and files. I have read that they will also offer an .iso file for those who prefer to do a clean install.

I'm getting the update upgrade but like Bob, I will make a complete system image beforehand just in case.

I have no idea what will happen to the recovery partition but it wouldn't surprise me if it did get wiped.

I agree.
It's pretty assured, MS doesn't want users to move back but bye in and move forward.

I'll be creating an Image just before the update so I don't really care what MS does with the restore partition. :)

That does nothing to preserve your old version of Windows should you want to go back. :)

What I'm wondering is this. I have 8.1 core edition with a copy of 10 reserved on my primary HDD. I also have the 10130 Win 10 Pro 10130 on my second HDD. I wonder if I will receive the release version on both drives. I was planning on wiping the second drive after release.

I've already removed the Windows 10 partitions on all but one computer and will be waiting for the update on these computer to Windows 10 on 7/29/2015.
Once Windows 10 is released, I'll only keep one computer that still dual boots to either Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.

I really don't see any reason to have dual boot after the release. I'll probably just go with 10. I think I'm keeping 7 on my laptop though..
