    I will do the upgrade method. I have two clones of Windows 7 just in case I have an issue or issues.

    And where do I get the install media?
    Dencal just informed us that all installs will be done by upgrade?
    I'm confused!

    The free upgrades for those with Windows 7 or 8.1 will be via online upgrade. There will still be regular install media for everybody else. You'll still be able to buy Windows 10 like you do Windows 8. When Windows 10 is officially released you'll be able to buy a stand alone copy to be used to install on new hardware. Why would they not do that?

    Yeah, I know. They kind of force you to go to the "shadier" parts of the internet to get an ISO or go through the annoying process of an ESD conversion.

    That's my question???

    Dencal seems to know what he's talking about...............
    he says by upgrade only???
    I do clean installs only!
    He says clean installs are only necessary when a machine is messed up? Can I sell a messed up machine with a clean install.
    Do I have to mess up a machine to get an ISO?
    I may wind up out of business??????????????????????

    Making an ESD ISO is quite easy to do. Look in the tutorial section

    There will be a stand alone version that you can purchase to do clean installs with. Always has been, always will be. There is no logic in making you buy Windows 8 and doing an upgrade to 10. Right now Microsoft wants to test out the upgrade process to get rid of bugs and other issues. That's why ISO's are so hard to come by. It's not always going to be like that.

    My own experience, shared only by a few on another forum.
    I went on the upgrade, in the first instance, from 056 to 061. Among other changes of folder size, the most significant was the Driver Store, which went from 1GB to a whopping 26GB. Something certainly put in there. A clean install of 061 left it at 1gb.

    In both cases, the OS ran without any scary problems.
