    I have 2 laptops with windows 8.1 but was offered to upgrade to windows 10 in only one of them. My HP-pavilion laptop still hasn't showed me the upgrade proposal. Is this normal?
    I'll do the upgrade whenever they consider it's stable enough I suppose. I very rarely use Windows anyway; only when I'm forced to.

    I tried to get the process started this morning. For me it's still at "Notify me when Windows 10 is available"

    Guess I"m stuck with 8.1 a wee bit longer

    So I have a fun problem:

    My OS is up to date, I have gotten every single download Microsoft has told me to, I have jumped through all the hoops, and when I go to manually download the get windows 10 app, it says my computer is not up to date and that I cannot get the app.

    I am running Windows 7 home premium 64 bit, I have service pack 1, I have windows updates enabled, I even download the optional ones. I have gone through the forums on the Microsoft website, but after doing A LOT of stuff in the command prompt to try to fix my issues, and use their fancy little troubleshooter, I have had no success. What else can I do besides manually download and force install Win 10?

    For both Kostas and duhuhu I'd suggest waiting a week or so. There are bound to be many issues like you're seeing. Hopefully Microsoft will get them all figure out over the next few days.

    Not only is this a brand new OS, its also the first time they've distributed it enmass like this.

    Not good enough! I demand free service NOW :wink: (just kidding, I figure they will get to it, I am just excited)

    Hey they're knitting those 1's and 0's as fast as they can. Do you think they just grow on trees :P

    Plus they need to go through and add by hand the following code to every function. It takes time

    The blue screen fades from light to dark to light now... and it says stuff in your favorite language.

    Disable any startup protection, it restarts a few times. I forgot to turn off my bios password and had to manually restart the computer.

    what do you mean "startup protection"
