Windows 10: Changing desktop wallpapers stopped working properly (tried 5 methods) Solved

    Before I start (I don't think I'll be doing it today, but for future reference), I guess my motherboard's too old for it to have UEFI firmware that I'd have to temporarily disable? So I'll not need to worry about disabling Secure Boot?

    Ps. FYI I've never actually 'properly' done ISO files or anything like this before. I guess it would take more than 1 DVD to put the ISO file on if I did it that way?

    ISO should fit on DVD just fine, it is usually bellow 4GB, so there is more than enough to spare.

    Since you have 10 already installed, no need to change anything, the upgrade should take care of it.

    [hopefully] one last question: when I've done this Repair Upgrade, will I have to re-download any of the Windows updates (or anything else)? Or will they be unaffected?

    A repair upgrade will install the build number that the iso contains. If you have downloaded the iso using the latest version of Microsoft's Media Creation Tool that appears to be version 1607 OS build 14393.591, you will need to check for updates, you'll get the latest Cumulative Update which will take you to OS build 14393.693

    BTW, you don't actually need to burn the iso to DVD, Windows 10 can mount it as a virtual drive and you can run Setup from there.
