    All downloaded. I've come to a drastic halt, and I know why. First I dont have a spare cd - I presume that is required for a dis burner, and currently my portable disc drive wont work bvecause I apparently have some other stuff to burn, and can't get rid of it as I've misplaced the cd from whic the information belongs (Windows 2003)

    Any suggestions - of an alternative?

    You don't need any media. Simply have the ISO saved on your desktop. See the video at approximately 14:40 on how to "MOUNT" the ISO and run setup.exe to perform the upgrade. (as I said in post #3)

    Well the download saved itself to downloads, I copied it across to desktop but don't know if it will work. I looked at the video, it was a bit intimidating. I didn't see "MOUNT" the ISO . Bit nervous about doing this.

    Okay so you've got the ISO on your desktop - good. In Windows 7, there is no native feature to mount an ISO like there is in Windows 8, which is why you have to watch the video. At approximately 21:30 it shows how to mount an ISO using 7-Zip, which is a free 3rd-party compression utility.

    So, download 7-Zip and install it.
    http://www.7-zip.org/
    Go to the ISO which you have copied on to your desktop.
    Right-click the ISO and do exactly as in the video:
    Starting about 21:30 in the video
    Open 7-Zip
    Navigate to the ISO on the Desktop
    Right-click and select 7-Zip>Extract Here
    7-Zip will then extract all the files within the ISO to your desktop.
    Once complete, close 7-Zip.
    Find the file on your desktop named setup.exe
    Double-click it and your upgrade will begin.
    Be prepared, as it will take a while.

    If you want to read the tutorial on how to extract files from an ISO in Windows 7, see this:
    SevenForums.com Tutorial
    ISO - Disk Image File : Extract to the Desktop in Windows 7
    ISO - Disk Image File : Extract to the Desktop - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Please just be sure you have all your important data backed up, just in case something happens. Usually, if there is a problem with the upgrade and it can't be completed, Windows will roll you back to your Windows 7 installation. But, every once and a while, some people have had problems with the rollback, so it's best to be safe and back up your data before upgrading.

    Good luck. Really, it's not so bad.

    Not going too good. The copy of w10 I transferred from docs to desktop is actually to burn
    I downloaded 7 zip and where you said to run setup files, I get a different window. I really think I need to start all over again

    Sure - it is entitled Win10_1511_1Englishx64 and seems to be a disc image file ( I may have mentioned this before)

    I tried to attach it but as its 4310.660kbs, it wont load. When I click on it tho, this screen comes up

    Disregard that one, I mean to show what happens when I click on the Win10 file
