    With ISO images i have always used a DVD and even used the standard windows burner with no issues . In Bios all you do is set the boot order to your DVD drive as the first option or USB stick as your first boot option .

    OK, my Win 10 reservation is still in reserve mode even though it has been since the first day of availability, so after reading this thread and posts about D/Ling the MCT to make my own USB ISO..... It's working so far (but slowly). I don't have a terrifically fast connection but I'll just let it spend the evening doing it's thing a hope I get it downloaded OK.

    Thanks for all the great info provided on this site by all the staff and fellow members.

    Hello Harrier,

    I hope it doesn't take to long for it to download for you.

    I'm retired and don't have much to do other than "wait"..... so, I'm in no big rush at this point.
    I'm happy to let it do it's thing while I watch TV etc. (or sleep).


    Edit: D/L complete just before my bed time

    Just before bed time? To me that is unacceptable , no way i could sleep until i do a full install , sleep is overrated anyway , good luck Harrier.

    MS Windows 10 Pro - Perm Activation of 10585

    I believe the easiest way to just make a DVD ISO , and then to the upgrade when Microsoft send you an email saying it is ready.

    I did my win 10 upgrade last night and all appears to be fine... after the upgrade I reloaded my Norton 360, and it is now doing fine..

    All be safe.. Cliff M.

    Misty:

    I believe that the time to make and check your ISO file should be less than 90 minutes .
