    I was replying to your point saying it makes it virtually impossible - that is not the case, it is easy ONCE you know how.

    In reality, majority of people who have a PC with embedded Home bios key DO NOT upgrade to Pro. So, if the installer always gave all options, you can bet your bottom dollar we would get loads of "How do I downgrade to Home" posts. It is not entirely unreasonable to expect Pro Users to be a bit more clued up.

    What should really happen is an option should come up, saying "We are going to install Home - confirm yes, or hit no to choose another option".

    I guess I should clarify. What I meant was, with "all" Editions now on the ISO, its virtually impossible to download the wrong Edition. Installing the correct one is another matter. In the past some downloaded Home SL thinking it was Home. The other option in the drop down just said Windows 10. It wasn't intuitive. Then they installed Home SL, which wouldn't activate, then did a WTF? Then had to re download the correct ISO and do yet another clean install.

    I'm going to try updating to 1709 again tomorrow. I am on 1703 now. I have two options: the first option is to download the Win 10 Home x64 ISO from the MS site and format and clean install Win 10 1709. Using this method, I'll have to reinstall all the drivers.

    The second option is to revert back to a system image of 1607 I made a few months back and then begin the update from there. I prefer this one as I won't have to install all the drivers again. When I had made the system image of 1607, I had made it after installing 1607 and the drivers, and not installing anything else. So basically, the computer is in a clean state, without any clutter of new programs having been installed, and any errors or problems that might have occurred after using Windows for a while.

    Again, I have two options there: one is to download the 1709 ISO, revert to 1607, and then extract the contents of the 1709 ISO and run setup from there. The second is to revert back to 1607, and then go to System - Updates, and let Windows itself download all the updates, and install them.

    If I revert to 1607 and start the setup of 1709 from the extracted ISO, will it directly upgrade to 1709, or will it say that the middle update of 1703 is missing and ask me to download some more stuff?

    And if I revert to 1607 and update from within Windows, will it first download 1703, and then 1709? Will it download the data for both these versions?

    Once I have updated to 1709, I'll make another system image and replace the 1607 one.
