    Making a Windows 10 USB Install flash drive


    Is it legal to make a Windows 10 USB install flash drive for a friend in another state?
    Thanks,

    Yes. Why can't they make their own?

    Thanks.

    The recipient is not very computer literate. Mostly reads emails, and scans the Internet.

    Just make sure and send instructions to insert the USB with the computer running and then run Setup.exe on the USB. He's asking for all kinds of trouble if he can manage to boot from the USB.

    This is in the plan but point well taken.

    Thanks.

    My question is if your friend only does email and surfs the internet, then what has he done to you to want to curse him with Windows 10?!? ;-)

    Danger, Will Robinson.

    I recommend imaging the current installation before doing an OS upgrade. (I'd recommend that for anyone, from novice through software developer.) That would guarantee that he could get back to where he is now, if the upgrade fails.

    I strongly recommend it if the machine is a laptop.

    That's unless your friend uses the PC as a communication device, and keeps none of his life on it. (Or has a good backup for just his critical documents.)

    This isn't to denigrate Microsoft or its upgrade. The probability of failure is low, but for some of us its potential consequences are too severe to risk.
