This is an expected message indicating that when installation begins it may require user interaction. This is the largest software upgrade event ever and we’re managing it so everyone has a great experience. We recommend waiting
until your PC receives a notification to upgrade, and then following the instructions provided.
Please note that there is no problem with your reservation or upgrade download. The upgrade download is not corrupt as some have stated, and you will be notified in the coming
days or weeks when your device is ready to upgrade.
If you are very eager to upgrade, tech savvy users with the above message can modify the following registry key to install immediately.
Locate the registry key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
It should exist, but if not, create it.
Create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value with Name = "AllowOSUpgrade” (without the quotes), and set the Value = 0x00000001.
Once the registry key is modified, close and reopen the
desktop Control Panel, go to Windows Update and check for updates. You should now be able to click the
Get Started button to upgrade to Windows 10.
Note: Windows 8.1 users must go to the desktop Control Panel, and not the modern Windows Update UI.”
