    So is the media creation tool going to basically be installing the windows 10 installer onto a physical disc with custom settings? How much space is it going to take up on said disk? I'm not sure if I have one big enough.

    The media creation tool will make the ISO needed to upgrade that system. You can make the ISO right on your C drive. It shouldn't need more than 32GB, although you'll need a bit more space to do the actual upgrade as well. You could also have it create and save the ISO to your 931GB Western Digital, then burn the ISO to a DVD, and run the upgrade that way.

    will 140 gb free be good enough?

    I would think that should be fine, but if you are concerned, then save the ISO to your WD drive, and burn that to a DVD. Then do the upgrade with the DVD. See option #2.

    Hi there. Not to overstep my bounds into yours, for I think you're doing a great job leading here, but IMO an in-house upgrade from his C: drive would be best. Less chance of corrupted ISO and a time saver. He has plenty of room. Trouble is that I'm so far from W7 and can't remember if it can mount the ISO in a virtual drive like 10 can?

    I agree Hypsie and there are instructions how to mount an ISO in W7.
    I believe it's included in this link?
    Extract the files from the ISO and select upgrade, keeping apps and files (begin at step 5)

    Ok, but he's in 7. Can 7 mount the ISO in a virtual drive like 10 can or will he have to go the optic drive avenue?

    BTW, aren't you glad these options are included with these new OSs?

    Oh yes, sorry. Here is the link for mounting an ISO in Windows 7:
    ISO - Disk Image File : Extract to the Desktop - Windows 7 Help Forums
    Actually, you don't mount the ISO, you extract the files in it.
    I had to leave for a few hours...sorry about that.

    Yes! Makes life so much easier!

    edit: I believe it's included in this link?

    The first link shows how to extract files from an ISO in W7. The second link shows how to do an in-place upgrade.

    @Axington
    If you run into any problems upgrading now, I'm going to pinpoint the AMD CCC (Catalyst Control Center). This had been causing issues in the past, although I thought it had been resolved. If need be, I believe you can uninstall CCC without removing your actual graphics drivers. That may or may not be an issue for you - just wanted to mention it.

    I asked this earlier in the thread but never got an answer on it and just wanna make sure: Should I uninstall security essentials first?
