    Upgrade to 10162 directly from the flash drive: Rufus 2.2.668


    July 4th 2015

    Things are getting better on each new release: Running a fully stable desktop environment.

    Download Win Ten and install Rufus 2.2 to create a bootable flash drive. See Rufus setup screenshot. You can rename the file under New volume label. Open the content of the flash dive and click on setup. Follow the process, don't touch nothing. It takes about 45 minutes.

    You can save a couple steps by mounting the ISO then run setup.exe.
    No rufus or flash drive needed.

    Thanks for the advice but I'm aware of that: I'm just testing Windows ten multiplicity

    Hi there

    If you need to BOOT then mounting an ISO obviously won't work unless you run from a VM. Also if you want to install on a number of machines then the USB idea is much better as you only have to create the bootable media once. Also you might want to format / clean your HDD and make a 100% clean install--again the USB idea is OK.

    Cheers

    So no boot involved.

    What Jimbo is saying is, If you have a blank hard drive with no OS on it, and you have to boot to your install media, that will not work. That only works if you can boot to an OS to run setup.exe from.

    I like to nuke everything except my Data drive and start with a clean slate.
