    Thanks Bree :) Bat was too lazy to list the diskpart commands since there's another thread at the top of the list

    Have You personally ever tried ? It works for Me and everyone else so......
    The only reliable method for me has been to use a 16GB Thumb drive and the MCT/Media Creation Tool to get both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions on the same drive. Then I store the stand-alone updates on it as they become available. It actually doesn't take any longer for the download than getting the .iso file and is immediately ready to use. No prep of the drive is necessary as it automatically reformats as FAT32.

    Got it guys, I went back and re-created with Rufus as GPT. The weird thing was, when I went into the BIOS Settings just to look at whether Legacy was Disabled etc. and Re-started, the thing booted right into the installation and I don't know why LOL. I did not change the Boot Order or anything, it just booted from it straight away. I only hoped that is was going to install as GPT, and was frustrated, so just let it go hoping the best, and it did install as GPT, so I'm pretty happy.

    I did have another issue that I will create a new topic for. My Wifi was not working, and I thought it was something to do with the Install or the pc. Turned out it was something to do with my Router. Unfortunatley, trying to fix it I Hit Reset in "Network and Sharing" and subsequently lost all Network connections ArrrrggggArrrrgggArrrgggg. Off to the Networking section. I see now that a Restart is required to get up and running again after Resetting.
