    Thank you for replying....you are misunderstanding, perhaps I'm not making myself clear.

    The HDD is clapped out and your above points are irrelevant.
    What I wish to know is......Taking out the knackered HDD which had W10 already installed and authenticated, and replacing it with a BLANK SSD, this is a laptop.

    Is it possible to install on the new SSD W10 1607 using the Windows Media ISO, and does the DVD ISO get me ONLINE in order to install.

    PS....in other words do you have to be inside Windows for it to install an ISO.
    No, you haven't understood what I have said, or I haven't made myself clear enough.

    Clean install Win 10 from a bootable Win 10 medium.
    Using an iso you can mount it having logged in, then you can upgrade, repair install...
    As you should know, the system restarts 2 or 3 times during installation: a mounted disk content it held in RAM so... no.

    As my points are deemed irrelevant given your puzzling comments about migrating data, I'll leave you with it. Good uck!

    Please reread my earlier posts.....3 times I mounted an ISO....THREE.

    I'm sorry you have taken umbrage, it was not my intention....if you had read carefully my posts you would have realised that the points you raised are not applicable

    What a pity you had to finish with a sarcastic ending.

    I just Upgraded my Dell Venue tablet from Version 1511 to Version 1607. After clearing up the insufficient drive space issue I then got a prompt to update the BIOS so the Dell download took care of that. I still needed a faster way to Upgrade so I copied the .iso file to the D: drive and Mounted it then Selected and Copied all the files to a Folder on the D: drive [named it Win10AU], changed to that Folder and ran setup.exe. It does take awhile but the tablet is working fine. All this to say it worked for me on 2 tablets and may work for others. For the space issue I added a 32GB USB Thumb drive formatted as FAT32, didn't seem to want to work with it as NTFS and it didn't want to work with a 64GB MicroSDXC card which is D:.

    I finally got Windows 10 home upgraded to the anniversary version. I used the ISO file burnt to a DVD and then had it install with keeping ONLY my personal files. It might be a littler more time reinstalling some programs, but that was the only way I could get it to install. Microsoft missed the boat big time on being able to do a simple upgrade.
