    I prefer to make the USB rather than an ISO (it means I have bootable media for a repair/clean install later, if required).
    I like having the ISO, although I never use it for direct installation. It's easy to make a USB from it with Rufus and to burn a DVD. Once I have the ISO, I keep it on hand until a newer version is available.

    Since my upgrade got somewhat messed up, i downloaded (using the media creation tool) the iso and burned a dvd which i am going to use today to do a clean install...if anyone knows...two quick questions:

    1) How do you know at what point to remove the dvd from the tray after it's installed...does it pop out automatically? If not, when to remove?

    2) Since i am going to indicate that i do not want to retain files, settings or data, do i still need to delete the original partitions that are one my hard drive right now, or will windows automatically wipe the partitions and re-install over them?

    Thanks

    1. If you're using a DVD, there will be a message to press any key to boot from CD/DVD. After it has prepped and restarts, just don't press any key...and eject with the drive button after it gets going again.

    2. You don't need to mess with your partitions at all. The installation will do what it needs to. All of that will be in the Windows.old folder when you are done, but not in your new OS.

    Thanks f14tomcat: understood but just to get extra clear on my first question: once it does the first restart, it is ok to eject the dvd disc from the tray (using the button on the tray)?

    OP stated he does not want to retain anything. In this case, OP should delete all partitions first.

    Like my use of a USB, once it says 'your PC is going to restart soon' at the end of the first phase it has finished copying all the files it needs and it is safe to remove the DVD/USB before the first restart.

    Thank you Bree...So right before the first restart...

    @cereberus: it's just that i am figuring some things must of gotten corrupted in my upgrade, so i wanted to be sure that wouldn't carry over to the clean install...not anxious to have to put on my files, settings and apps back in fresh again but i figured totally clean is the best bet....so then, i do need to delete all partitions first myself?

    Deleting all partitions is the cleanest install you can do. It also ensures new partitions are exactly as recommended.

    FCU failed on the old Acer. Done messing with it. Performing an in-house from a UUPtoISO just to see how it goes.
