Win 7 upgrade notification

I purchased a laptop in August.  I registered with Dell for the free upgrade.  Since Win 7 has been released now, how long will it be before I receive the notification that I can get my upgrade?

Sorry to hear about your affliction, but that was very funny! On all those emails you get there is a link at the bottom of them where you can unsubscribe to the thread.

 

But why would you want to do that?!

LOL, that made me laugh *really* hard.

I was getting a bit sick of them filling my inbox too, as I was visiting the forums without a need for the reminders....and the ONLY way I found was to reply to a post in the relative thread, and remove the tick from the box that says 'email me when someone replies blah blah'. That was the only effective way for me...before that I tried all sorts...and failed. If that doesn't work, I'll apologise now for my tidings of doom infecting your inbox. LOL :emotion-4:

Well my Windows 7 disc/s arrived at 10:50AM...they must have put a right scamper on as it only left East Mid not too long before.

 

Thanks for all your advice. Rest assured should I run into any installation problems I'll be back pecking your heads. I'll also keep popping in to see if everyone got sorted. Best of luck to those still waiting. Now for the installation...where's my geeky head....ahh, here it is :emotion-15:

From experience, when it goes blank, it means that Dell is sending the order through to UPS, and you should get an E-Mail in the next few days.
