I just got this message from Microsoft saying I can reserve my free Windows 10 upgrade.

But I don't want to install Windows 10 before I do a clean windows 7 reinstall.

So do I click yes or no on this?

    Apparently more people are getting this message: http://www.neowin.net/news/windows-7-and-8-users-are-now-able-to-reserve-their-free-copy-of-windows-10

    But why do you need to "reserve your copy" really.

    I clicked yes and now I got this image. I hope I still get my free upgrade after I reinstalled Windows.

    yep, my friend doesn't have it either yet, but it's being reported that people are getting them, it will appear as a system tray icon

    once you get the icon, and reserve your copy simply by clicking, it will be ready for Windows 10, once windows 10 launches, an automatic update will happen upgrade your OS

    but....I am unsure what will happen if I now reinstall windows 7, it should appear again, just hope it works again

     

    although, if I get the option to do a clean install, that wipes windows 7-8, I will accept that, since it's the same are reinstalling windows 7

    so I;ll wait until launch, hopefully I get the "delete everything on the HDD and install a clean copy of windows 10", instead of "upgrade"

    THEY BROUGHT THE START MENU BACK!!! PRAISE JESUS! lol 

    I signed up, and am eagerly waiting for the official release. I'm a bit... annoyed that the little update icon is still sitting in my task tray, but yes please bring on the new update.

    As someone who has been using the Tech Preview since around November, I can tell you that it's really going to be an amazing OS. It's gotten leaps and bounds better in the last few preview releases and I plan on rolling it out to my company, which I could never have done with Windows 8/8.1. I am so excited for Win 10!!!!

    I got the notification this morning - it appeared in the Notification area of the task bar.

    It serves as a slick marketing tool I suppose - especially people who may not have realized they are eligible for the free upgrade. And MS is desperate to get people to move to Win10, this would help get a few more people who otherwise may not have upgraded if it didn't occur semi-automatically.

    I don't think it matters what you click really, the only thing your agreeing to is for Microsoft to send you an email when Win10 is ready to download.
