    What is the size of the ISO file you created? Is it Win 10 Home or Win 10 Pro?
    My Pro 64 bit is 3,255,232KB. Downloading Home X64 now to check the size.

    Yes, the first 32bit 64 bit choice is based on what OS your going to run the MCT on, 32 bit or 64 bit. Then you decide if you want to download the 32 bit Windows 10 or 64 bit windows 10 ISO. That's caught a few people out.

    Still stuck on Win 8.1 OS


    After waiting in vain for days for Windows to be offered to me as a download to upgrade my current Win 8.1 Pro 64-bit laptop, I have given up. My OS started off as Win 7, which I then upgraded to Win 8, and subsequently Win 8.1

    Long ago I requested the update, and had the "Get Windows 10" icon in my taskbar, and assumed that I would be notified when the update became available to eligible users in South Africa.

    But I'm still waiting for MS to notify me when I can get Win 10

    In desperation I downloaded (..using the Win media creation tool..) and then burned the download to a DVD, and I now have the created Win 10 ISO on the DVD.

    But what should I do now? How do I use the ISO to install Win 10. Below is a screenshot of the properties of the ISO I burned to DVD

    I see it lists the file system as "UDF" I have no idea what that is.

    Open the DVD in Windows Explorer and run setup.exe from its root directory.

    UDF stands for Universal Disc Format - a filesystem format used in all DVDs and some CDs. You should't really bother to care as long as it works.

    Hate to chime in here but I was trying to make a ISO disc for Windows 10 but the ISO is bigger then my DVD. Any ideas?

    Two options: take a double-layer DVD or make a bootable USB out of the ISO (using Rufus for example). I'd do the latter

    wow, the iso created by the mediatool is 5.9gb but the one from the site (from the tutorials on the forums) are only 3.8
    I assume the media one is updates aswell?
