    I have a laptop that WON'T under any circumstances properly install the latest updates to Windows 8.1 without bluescreening.

    It's a particular Asus model and a known issue that has been a problem for months, so I just stuck with the working (older) system after many, many attempts to resolve.

    As I don't have the latest 8.1 updates, I didn't get the Windows 10 upgrade app to make a reservation. Is there any way to get JUST the app to make a reservation?

    Eh, yeah... but....

    I CANNOT under ANY circumstances use the update control panel to get the app without bluescreening my laptop and having to go through an entire reinstallation of the OS because reverting does NOT work (tried it dozens of times, literally), so that path is a dead end, hence the question.

    Can I get the app and make a reservation any other way?

    It's not like anybody here will be waiting for July 29th to install windows 10 so I really wouldn't worry about that app or reservations. Of course MS could pull a fast one and not have a RTM available weeks early..but I doubt it.

    The GWX icon disappeared. Even if I run the gwx.exe from the System32 folder, nothing happens. :eek:
