    Yes. I forgot about Win 7 which does not have Mount option.

    If you want to install now, please use the Upgrade Install tutorial.

    One thing you have to remember with Windows 7: you can't easily "mount the ISO" like you can in Windows 8.x. You'll need a 3rd party tool to do it, like 7-zip. The link @Ztruker gave in Post #3 explains this; in the video, you can see it starting at about 21:30.
    Easier to just use media creation tool to create a usb flash drive, then insert flash drive in pc and run setup.exe.

    Can I still get the ISO file and using something like ImgBurn, burn it to a disk so that I have an installation media for Windows 10?

    Now another problem:
    This concerns this old desktop on which I just finished a clean install of Windows 7 (it was a Vista machine). I think I mentioned that I got an invite for Windows 10 upgrade a couple days ago. I just left the little white box on the taskbar. Tonight it opened and wanted me to select Upgrade now or Start download, upgrade later.

    I chose the latter and it started to download. I don't even know if I want to upgrade this computer to 10, but decided I would go ahead and get the download just in case. Good thing I kept a close watch on this.

    After download was finished it started running again Preparing for installation. The short of it is that it wanted to start upgrading and I had selected the option to upgrade later. I stopped it and on the box where I was supposed to accept or decline, I didn't know what to do so I just clicked the X in the top right corner and closed it out.

    I'd appreciate some advice on what went on here, and I'm wondering if now, by stopping everything and not selecting Accept, have I messed up the possibility of installing 10 on this machine
