    I also looked up your Dell computer according to your spec's you have listed. Here is what Dell says about that model.

    Studio XPS 7100
    Product not tested for Windows 10 upgrade
    Dell is not testing or developing Windows 10 drivers for this product. If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected.

    Sorry NavyLCDR, I have tried to follow that instruction a couple of times but when I right click on the ISO file I do not have the option to click on MOUNT
    Probably because you have izarc installed. If OldMike's suggestion does not work, try uninstalling izarc and then try OldMike's suggestion again. Unless you are working with rar files or making/modifying your own ISO files, there is no need to have a third party zip/unzip or ISO program installed with Windows 10 - Windows 10 will do everything most users need with zip and ISO files by itself.

    I have run the link at #20 and the message tells me that it has been successfully added but it hasn't. I have tried rebooting the pc but the MOUNT option is still not there.

    I have tried a restart and a shutdown and switch back on but it is still not there. I have even gone into settings and reset the apps to the Microsoft default and it is still not there.

    getting close to pulling my hair out.

    I would try this little program, then. I just installed it on my laptop and it seems legit. You will want to make sure to check the Bootable block. You want to leave it as FAT32.
    ISO to USB

    I think your current issue is that you have installed some software that you don't want that came included with other software that you intended to install and the unwanted software is interfering with Windows 10.

    I think that you are absolutely correct in what you say NavyLCDR, and is precisely why I am trying to do a reinstall. Am I going to be able to overcome this do you think?

    Did you try the ISO to USB program? Other solutions would be to use another computer to create the Windows 10 installation USB flash drive, borrow a Windows 10 installation USB flash drive from someone, try creating a DVD instead of a USB flash drive (if you have a writeable DVD disc drive), or try an in-place repair install:

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    Well....except the in-place repair install requires that you are able to mount an ISO file which seems like something (probably the izarc program) is preventing.

    Yes I tried the ISO to USB programme and all was fine until it said that the USB must be formatted first, it then gave me the option to format but then a message said that it couldn't do it. I then went into File explorer and formatted it there and then tried the programme again but it still wouldn't have it.

    Well NavyLCDR, the ISO to USB prog seems to have done something.

    Does this look right to you? (Hopefully the image will appear ok)

    You could also try another USB flash drive. I recommend 8 GB for only Windows 10 installation.

    I think I was doing my post at #28 whilst you were replying. I posted the wrong image, here is the correct one, does it look right to you?
