Windows 10 Upgrade Scheduling

Hi

I reviewed the Microsoft website regarding upgrading and how to
schedule it.   Their webpage http://www.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/windows-10-upgrade has
some great information on how to reserve and schedule the installation for the
free upgrade.  On scheduling, you reserve your upgrade for later this year.
 They will notify you when it is available and it will let you schedule
the installation for a time that is convenient for you.

The download is expected to be in the 3 GB range.
 We will continue to keep you informed as it gets closer to the release
date. Stay tuned.

It appears that you can schedule the installation , but like all other Microsoft updates, you have no control over when Microsoft actually does the download to your computer. That means if they don't allow a manual selection of the download, it can come during the time our data is being counted.

It would be nice if Microsoft provided an ISO download for the final product, like they have done for the preview/beta versions.

***UPDATE *** An ISO will be available, which will allow one to download at a time of their choosing.

From what I've been reading, the home version won't allow you to see schedule updates either.
