    I often recommend clean installation, which took me less than 20 minutes.

    I always recommend upgrading using iso first, and then clean installing if any issues.

    A matter of personal preference.

    How large is this update? Talk of clean installing sounds pretty major...

    Do you mean the size of the ISO file?

    2). Using an add-on to change the browser's user-agent to fool the Micro$oft servers into thinking that you are not on a Windows-based machine to directly download the .ISO
    In Edge or IE you don't need an add-on. Use the F12 Developers Tools. In Emulation you can set it to look like Apple Safari (iPad).

    I mean the size of the Creators Update, either ISO or through Windows Update. Does the upgrade via ISO or Windows Update go smooth? Just wondering why clean installing is being mentioned.

    For 1511, 1607 and now 1703 I've always used the MCT to make the install media and upgraded manually. The download of the .iso (or USB) is over 4GB for 64-bit, a bit less for 32-bit. Through Windows Update you would be downloading a similar setup package, so the download size would be about the same.

    Just wondering why clean installing is being mentioned
    Personal preference, really. Some like to make a clean break at each new version. Others (like me) prefer a progressive upgrade from one version to the next. Downloading the .iso give you the option to do a clean install should an upgrade have issues - not that I've ever had any.

    It should - but folks have been having issues, and Micro$oft is warning users notto install CU just yet.

    Do you mean 'It should have upgrade issues'?
