Windows 10 has started rolling out yesterday for everyone using genuine versions of Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. Windows Insiders and most of Windows 8.1 users are either getting the pop-up to download, or downloading the Windows 10 update. However, there is a faster way by which you can jump the queue and get the Windows 10 update directly. Windows 10 is available for download as a .iso file from Windows 10's official download page.
1. First of all, ensure that you have a genuine copy of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1. You can check this by right-clicking on "My Computer" or "This PC" icon (depending on the version of your Windows) and selecting Properties. Check which Windows version you are on, and check the activation status as well.

2. After this, go to the Windows 10 download page, and download the respective tool. Ensure you download the correct version, depending on whether you are running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows.
3. Run the tool, and select "Create Installation Media for another PC". Click Next.
4. Select Language, Windows edition, and the architecture you want to download. Refer to this page if you are confused which version you should select.
5. Next, choose your desired installation media, USB or DVD, and start.

8. Search for setup.exe file and start the installation process.
9. Let the process run, select the required settings, and if you have executed the previous steps correctly, you should boot into Windows 10.
