    Install Build 10130 on new SSD


    I like to replace my HDD with an SSD. So I downloaded the ISO file (for Build 10130, 32 bit) on a USB stick, double-clicked the file, and put all the resulting files back on the USB stick so that setup.exe is now in the root directory of the USB stick. After replacing the HDD with the SSD, the BIOS would execute setup.exe and install W10, would it not?

    You'd have to manually choose to boot from the flash drive via 'Boot Menu' by way of an F-Key or Esc key specific to your machine.

    Just curious:
    You had the iso on the flash drive, you mounted it then copied the files back onto the same flash drive correct?
    Just wondered what happened to the iso file when you did that.
