    I've got Win8.1 Pro, activated via Ratiborus awesome KMS activator.
    All looks good but no sign of the Win10 update. It's been 3 days.
    Any ideas? Does my install not qualify?

    (Previously it was triggered the minute I made a silly registry hack in Win 8.1. Enterprise - too simple. Yet I had the update prompt 10 minutes after.
    But I decided to do it "properly" to avoid later problems and now it seems M$ doesn't want to play with me anymore.... )

    Why not use Windows 7 with Daz loader and upgrade it to 10? And correct me if I'm wrong but u have Pro VL version, KMS activated, VL versions are not upgradable.

    Enterprise does not get free win 10.

    You can do two simple things, DL the win 10 pro, extract the ISO on your desktop, and run the upgrade.

    You can follow this guide, and just clean install win 10 and skip the upgrade - under 1aa upgrade problem -here

    You can also do what the above posted said and install 7, use loader and upgrade or clean trick.

    You can also install any windows 10 (except home) and use KMS which changes it to a Volume license.

    Thanks for the tips guys! All good now. It just took about 3 days before Windows phoned home about the upgrade. I also discovered that it can be triggered manually with a tool, alternatively its possible to burn a CD as normal.
