    If you like, you could also get a cheap 8GB USB to use.

    Oh my. That explains why it was taking so long.
    Yes, oh my. I was checking everything thinking I had a clog in my pipeline. As it turned out, I was downloading a file nearly twice the size of what I thought it was.

    I didn't save it as a USB install. I saved it as an iso file. I didn't think I could install from an iso loaded onto a USB flash drive. I seem to recall that you need to make the USB flash bootable. I wasn't sure, because I don't do those types of tasks very often.

    That's correct. You would use the ISO to create a bootable USB for installing Windows 10 with.

    Use a 16GB flash drive instead of a DVD. Faster install. I create my install flash drives with Rufus.
