    ISO image


    Hi
    My apologies if this has been asked already. I've downloaded the ISO image and tried to burn it to DVD only to find that is too large 5.6 GIG and doesn't fit on a 4.7 : is there a way to get it to fit or can I extract it to desktop and run it from there?

    Any assistance greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Access the ISO on the desktop and run setup.exe.

    Hi there

    Or use Rufus and create a bootable USB stick.

    Cheers

    If EITHER will work, what's the advantage of going to the trouble of making a bootable USB stick rather than poking the setup.exe? Why even consider making bootable media?

    I'm a little unclear on whether you're attempting an upgrade or clean install. Don't boot to media if you're upgrading.

    While I am not certain, something seems amiss with the size of your ISO.

    When I did the ISO creation onto a USB flash drive, the size was about 3.1gbytes total. That has been confirmed by a number of posters here.

    Cannot understand why a DVD would be 2gbytes bigger.

    That being said, the reason for the ISO creation is not to do the initial upgrade. It's to wipe the upgraded Win10 install once activation has been triggered so that you have a clean install for Windows 10. Some people desire that. It also allows you to re-install to clean at some later date.

    Can W7 mount the ISO? It needs to be able to mount the ISO in order to run setup.exe.

    Does your DVD burner support the DVD+R/DL discs? The face of the tray on most will show DL or Dual-Layer. The DVD+R/DL disc will hold about 8GB.

    The main reason I see to put on a flash drive is if you have more than one computer to upgrade. Saves copying the ISO from computer to computer.

    Also, it has to be on a DVD or flash drive if you want to do a Clean Install as you have to boot it to do that.

    He mentioned extracting the files from the ISO as an option.
