I 'reserved' a copy of Win10 via the 'How to get Windows 10 for free'
window, accessed via the icon which appears in the notification tray.
Later, over a period of several days, the data files for Win10 began to
arrive on my machine - their total size is several GB and, since my,
allegedly broadband, internet connection is capable of only 40 MB/sec on
a good day, this took a while. When all the bits were present on the
local machine, the upgrader suggested that installation could start now,
or could be delayed to a time of my choice. I elected to 'start now'.
The installation took several hours, but there were no glitches.
