    Great I will try all this later when I get home from work .
    Just want to point out these........( another member I tried to help make some of the mistakes listed below)
    1. Make certain that when you downloaded the Media Creation Tool, you picked the correct bit-version.
    2. Make sure you stick to the same language as your Win 8.1 is using. That member chose English (UK) while his computer is using English (United States).
    3. Make sure you pick the right Win 10 version. (That member chose Win 10 Home while he has Win 7 Pro in his computer).

    Anyway, good luck installing Windows 10.

    I am not sure, but you can mount the ISO (right-click and select Open with -> Windows Explorer) only in Windows 8 and 8.1 In Windows 7 you would have to use a third-party tool such as Daemon Tools Lite, but I wouldn't dare doing it and midway the upgrade Windows would not be able to read the files. I would rather copy all files to a folder in the hard disk and start setup from there to make sure.
    You are right.
    Windows 7 does not have the option to do....... Mount the ISO and then click Setup.exe.
    That feature started with Win 8.
    The OP has Win 8.1.

    Even in Windows 8 and 8.1, I would not trust mounting the ISO, just in case midway it cannot find the files. I would copy all files to a folder and start setup from there to be extra sure. Or I would burn to DVD.

    That's fine. It your choice. But that does not mean one method is superior than the other.
    I used my method posted to install 5 computers. Not one road bump.
    I also have a bootable DVD which will be used if I need to do a clean install.
