You must Register your system on the Dell web site as you did not buy direct from Dell. It can then take a minimum of 3-5 business days for the system to process the registration. Untill you register which also transfers ownership it will come up as ineligable

You must buy an eligible computers from Dell or an approved retailer on or after July 26th to get a free upgrade. You will not be eligible since you bought well before that. You will need to but the upgrade yourself.
