    Thanks a lot for the help folks. The precautions link especially, very useful to know.

    I had no such problems upgrading my pc, but I'm guessing these laptop/tablets are more fussy. At least I'm not going into it blind.

    A 64Gb SD card has been purchased, awaiting delivery.

    Ok I have my SDXC card in the laptop/tablet, 128GB. How exactly do I use it to get Win 10 installed?

    I've backed up the Win8.1 with Bing to the SD Card, and backed up the drivers to a folder too. As per a link above.

    Copy the Windows 10 ISO file to the SD Card. Run disk cleanup using option 2 here and check every option:
    Disk Cleanup - Open and Use in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Mount the ISO file stored on the SD Card and run setup.exe from the virtual drive letter that gets created.
