    @debgram, yours won't look exactly like this, but similar. Notice 2 entries for the USB drive. Choose the one with the red arrow. It has UEFI as part of the name.

    Someone else will have to answer that, I don't have a DVD drive. But, I don't believe so. I don't think a DVD will hold the ISO. The ISO is over 4 GB.

    I burned the iso on dvd, I have one. When you use media tool it gives you the option dvd or usb

    OK, as long as you have a UEFI for the DVD, I assume it will work. I have never tried it.

    An ISO downloaded from Techbench or through the Media Creation Tool (MCT) is too large to burn to a DVD without using MCT to do the actual disc burn

    But as you state, you can create a DVD using the option in MCT
    - it is the only way I managed to burn the install media to a DVD.

    I do want to be sure that you downloaded a fresh MCT and used that to create your install media. Otherwise, you might have the wrong media.

    To be sure - Pop the DVD in the drive
    Launch Command Prompt

    DISM.exe /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:D:\sources\install.esd /index:1
    D is your DVD drive letter

    It should report Home (or Core) and 14393.0

    I burned it through the media creator, I used the anniversay edition

    Ok thanks, that's what I thought.

    The output surprised me though (I'm still trying to figure out how the MCT puts the data on a disc when a std burn can't - thought it would only put one edition on the disc ... so this is interesting).

    Try the same command, but instead of /index:1 use /index:2 at the end
    That should report Home, same version, same bit depth

    Ok, thanks - that satisfied my curiosity. I guess I'll have to test some things here to try and figure out how the MCT gets both versions on a disc when a straight burn can't.

    But that media looks good, when you're ready do your Clean install with that disc.

    I think you have everything else answered, I jumped in again to support essenbe and you re: the disc.
