Yep, and it's all good. I'm just glad it was ultimately recoverable. It's a fine SP3 with no defects, and so I was loathe to exchange it. I have seen a PC or 2 in my time that got worked into a bricked state, so I was a tiny bit concerned there at the end. I will definitely jump onto Win10 though once the RTM comes out, maybe sooner though. I do want to start using it.
