How to Cancel Windows 10 Reservation (Properly)

Infopackets has a post on How to Cancel Windows 10 Reservation (Properly).

While you can also image your current system WITHOUT buying Acronis (this is just another way of doing something Windows offers built-in), this post also discusses how to avoid the automatic download and installation of Windows 10.

Past experience has led a number of users to recommend a full backup or image of your current system, and then installing a complete fresh iso file of a new Windows operating system, rather than trying to “upgrade” an older version of Windows.

Meanwhile, ZDNet has a post  on how-to-turn-your-windows-10-upgrade-into-an-iso/ which you might prefer.  “You can start the upgrade, wait until the installer files are fully downloaded, and then cancel. In either case, you’ll find the large installer file stashed in a hidden folder called C:\$Windows.~BT, in a subfolder called Sources.”
