    Download an application called Rufus and use it to create a bootable thumb drive and use that thumbdrive to upgrade Windows.

    One big advantage of this is if you have many computers with same Windows edition (32-bit or 64-bit, Home or Pro), you only need to download the files once and after that you can upgrade all computers using same ISO.
    You don't need any third party programs to create a bootable USB flash drive from a Windows 10 ISO file. Open a command prompt or PowerShell and run diskpart. Then in diskpart:

    list disk
    select disk # <-replace # with the actual number for the USB flash drive.
    clean <- this will erase the selected disk above, make sure it is the USB flash drive!
    create part pri
    format fs=fat32 quick

    Now mount the Windows 10 ISO file and copy all the files and folders from the mounted ISO file to the USB flash drive.

    Regarding the same version and architecture (bit level) - the ISO file downloaded with the MCT will contain all the editions of Windows 10 except for Enterprise, so you can definitely install/upgrade either Home or Pro with it. You can also select the option to download both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions in the same ISO file as well.

    diskpart actually only uses the first three letters, so cre par pri would work just as well as create partition primary.

    lis dis works just as well as list disk.

    sel dis #

    Hmmmm...... now I am going to have to try *** for assign....
    ^^^yep, that works too.

    exi will exit diskpart. But a second exi will not exit the command prompt itself.
