    I have a USB flash drive (16GB) that has Windows 10 Home and Pro, 32 and 64 bit.

    When I boot it I get a boot manger screen with a choice of Windows 10 32 bit or 64 bit.
    Selecting either took me to the screen where you enter the key.
    I clicked on Skip then the next screen had a choice of Home or Pro.

    I've used it for all 4 versions of Windows 10, works great.

    Thank you, that sounds like not a bad idea. One of my suspicions with USB thumb drives is always longevity compared to a DVD.
    But then again what will be the live of Win 10, I don't think it will live as long as XP did.
    I am still re-scheduling the install of 10 every few days.
    I read every day of new problems that 10 is suffering from, the latest not being able to save exit a external USB drive, not thumb drive.

    I see someone found a method for that. I had been wondering since the 7 unlocked iso if 10 was going to see this at all. The Tech Bench program also looked interesting as well. But that is intended for retailers. The downloads must be seeing both Home and Pro rolled up together while the combo see the 32bit and 64bit of one edition or the other. 72%!

    I still had to burn a dvd for the laptop that was upgraded here since it would only detect a bootable disk in the drive without any boot device menu option to bring up available! Guess I chose the wrong HP model back in 2012 for someone?! Flash drives are far easier to carry in a key chain holder if not seeing a hole in one end for putting onto a key chain as some 8gb flash drives see. The combo iso takes an 8gb not a 16gb since that comes in at about 5.6gb on the drive.
