    Best purchase you ever made! You will thank me later for the thermal upgrades. Peace of mind brother...

    Feel free to steal my signature including the MSI Gaming Team logo then edit it to match your system's specs.

    Hi All,

    I just wanted to share the time line and experience regarding my order. So it is as following

    • Order Placed: 25th April 2018
    • Order Shipped: 07th May 2018 ( I chose DHL as my shipping method, However I believe it was upgraded to Fedex International Economy with 5 to 7 business day delivery) Thank you HIDEvolution team !
    • Order Received: 13th May 2018 ( one day after scheduled delivery, this was only due to me selecting the package to be delivered to my work place instead of my home).
    Then I turned on the laptop and started setting it up. While doing that I was about to reach out to @Phoenix to schedule a time for his tweaking session. However I then realized that the Windows version installed on the laptop was the Windows 10 Home and not the Pro as per my order. No big deal, I dropped HIDevolution
    support a quick email and opened a ticket. Few hours later ( due to the 11hrs time difference between UAE and US) I was contacted by
    @Zoltan@HIDevolution who explained to me that Windows 10 Pro was on back order and I should expect it around Friday 18th May.

    This was totally fine with me as I was not in a rush and the process was as simple as updating my Windows 10 Home with the new Windows 10 Pro license copy once I received it. Immediately the next day, I was positively surprised to get an email from @thattechgirl_viv with my Windows 10 Pro license key. I went ahead and attempted to updated my Windows 10 key but it didn't work.

    I reached out again to HIDevolution support and informed them on the same, Zoltan then called me and connected to my laptop through TeamViewer and started looking into it. He then realized that my license copy is for a full version of Windows 10 Pro and not for an upgrade version ( Home to Pro). Therefore a format of windows followed by a fresh install was required.

    Since the time was almost 1AM local time in UAE and I had to wakeup early for work. I asked him if we can schedule this for tomorrow. Due to the time difference I have asked him if it was possible to do it as early as possible ( Los Angeles time). So that I can have enough time on the support session to do everything thoroughly.

    The next day, and 2hrs before the time I expected Zoltan to call. I received a call from him, which was also a welcomed surprise. I believe the call was at 7AM LA time. A couple of hours later, the laptop was formated, Windows 10 pro was installed, drivers were installed and everything else was updated and successfully completed.

    Apologies for the long post, I just wanted to capture my experience in detail, and note that it resulted in me getting to know another great person from HIDevolution team.

    Thanks again @Zoltan@HIDevolution for your time and patience !
