    That's true.

    I don't think so.

    I may be confused on your reason for wanting the DVD. You say you want it for install and repair.

    With the DVD you can do a clean install by booting from the DVD.

    With the DVD, you can also do an in-place upgrade (of the same OS already installed, but perhaps broken somehow) repair by opening File Explorer (with DVD inserted) and double-clicking the setup.exe file in the root of the DVD.

    Assuming you have saved the actual .iso file that you downloaded (and burned the DVD from), you could also just browse to it in File Explorer, right-click on it and select "Mount". Then the contents of the .iso will display as a new drive in File Explorer. You can then click on that drive and double click the setup.exe file displayed in the root of that drive to do an in-place upgrade for repair. This option is described in more detail in Brink's Tutorial here: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    If you're trying to repair the OS using DISM, that's another thing. Even though you don't mention DISM in your opening post, I was getting the impression (especially since DISM was brought up later in the thread) that you had been advised to use WIM instead of ESD after you had problems using DISM to repair. This option would be as described in Brinks other Tutorial found here: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/7...-10-image.html See Option One-Step 6 for using install.WIM (Step 7 would be for using ESD).

    I actually had more success using install.WIM for the DISM repair by mounting the ISO as a drive and then using that drive path in the "Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:" command. It didn't work well for me by inserting a burned DVD and using that as the ":Full Path to install.wim file" that Brink specifies to use in the Tutorial.

    I hope this helps clarify rather than confuse your situation.

    That's the one thing that kinda bugs me on this subject, as I do not have the "mount" feature displayed by right clicking on any ISO file. I think either my programs like WinRAR or maybe 7-zip removed that option for some reason.

    Right click -choose open with- then choose windows explorer that will mount it. And yes 7-zip takes over. You can unmount by right clicking the mounted disk by choosing eject.

    Yeah, I will have to try that, just don't want to remove my other options on my file menu. Would rather ADD that option then remove WinRAR options. But yes I will play with that method too.

    Hi,

    Quite likely WinRAR did as it can be a bit "possessive" when it comes to file associations.
    You can change that I suppose by re-running the setup and unchecking some of the file associations or you may be able to return to Windows defaults through "Settings" > Apps> Defaults. Or else as Porthos suggests by using the "Open With" menu in Explorer.

    Cheers,

    Porthos was correct on his method, as I have already read about this method. It will work, and is a quick and easy method. Will take a look just to see what it may change in my file menu's.

    Not if winrar ,winzip or 7zip takes over iso handling.

    Sure. I recall us having discussed this briefly before. Since you then mentioned you couldn't access the "Open with" menu option I thought I'd mention different workarounds.
    There are various software solutions as well from the days Windows didn't have the possibility to mount an iso file directly but it seems a bit over the top nowadays.

    Does not change anything its just there for you to use. Many have those programs installed and that is where people get confused with mounting instructions.
