    7 and 10 on various machines

    Well had a look for the retail stuff and there are offers like I mentioned before and it comes in various modes USB, DVD and just downloads I guess the best price for something I know would be genuine from my usual supplier of gear is $140 a Home 64bit. I'll give it a while because a) the prices usually come down given a little bit of time b) the Aussie dollar is pretty pathetic right now against any of the major currencies.

    Anyway better let the thread get back OT eh?

    I don't know where you are, but everyone else in the world has cheaper and faster Internet than the US.

    Hmm well my avatar should give you some idea of where I am but what you say about internet costs and speeds is definitely not true because out here it can be cheap to a point but fast until they roll out the new network - NBN it's like wading through treacle and then not always reliable.

    Connection speeds will vary even when being the same type. When the ISP host servers are busy you can expect to see slow downs as well as when other sites you are visiting are also busy. And then you weigh in the type of connection as well. Dial-up cannot be topped as the "ssslowwwest" type creeping at dinosaur speeds. FIOS on the other hand for dsl may end up being faster then cable! So a review of the US ISP Wynona has going might be in order. XFinity here is reasonable cable.

    Where you are probably isn't as remote as other locations like the Outback territories I could imagine unless you are top of the Red Centre? by the location you put in your profile. Got a contact almost your neighbor out that way.

    As far as pricing goes that usually depends on the type of service as well as the varying rates seen by different ISPs to begin with. Each will have their plans and rates depending on what is profitable for them to maintain the service. People never stop to look at obstacles to carry service to remote as well as more populated areas. That includes the US as well as anywhere else. Satellite tends to be the price grabber with charge per page visited.

    I must admit that I'm not sure what caused it to do this, but as long it's working perfectly fine is what counts.
    Hi Shawn,
    Are you saying here that I can do a custom install of Windows by running the setup.exe from inside the 'Sources' folder. Does that mean I don't have to boot from the USB flash drive, just plug it in! I thought that to get the 'Custom' option I had to boot from the bootable flash drive, which I'm having problems with at the moment. The dialog box that initially opens to install Windows is so small I can't even read it without a magnifying glass. And it won't operate anyway. I've been trying to dual boot my ultrabook, because I can't get back to W.8.1 because the MS technicians fouled it up trying to correct problems after I did the free upgrade to W.10. Thanks for a reply.

    Hello Robin,

    Yes, but if you wanted to do a clean install, you would need to boot from the USB.
