    just a bit of info in case you wonder...

    if you reserved your upgrade and run windows updates you may already have the upgrade files on your pc.

    view hidden folders on your boot drive and look for  $Windows.~BT

    if that is on your drive then you have some or all of the files and just have to wait for Microsoft to send the magic signal to your pc.

    Don't manually run the updater MSI if you have it. It will not work.

    That's like providing a huge red button with "DO NOT PRESS THIS BUTTON" on it, and expecting that people won't press it...

    Just hope they remember to code suspend (i.e. store encryption key in plain format on disk, necessary to be done manually on Win7->Win8.x upgrades) disk encrpytion before starting upgrade, or at least prompt if it need to be done manually.

    Update:

    on my Surface pro 2 that was not in the preview but is on the same ms account I went to check for updates and the update tool in control panel says I can start my upgrade.

    need to check my gaming desktop and see if it has any kind of update / upgrade install, it has 10240 from the last preview build but the question is wil it now get a new re-load for the launch?

    more news when I have more info..... see you from the other side.
