If you have a wired network connection, it will download the install
image after it reboots. Be prepared for it to take a while to do the
download. It probably does not take that long, but it feels like it
is 5 minutes before the download indicator moves from 0%, so don't
give up when it does not seam like it is moving. I upgraded my
desktop that way.
