    Default Win10 again.

    Ok, I hope this hasnít been covered in one of the other threads but here goes anyway.

    What I want to do is download an ISO image of Win 10 along with current updates onto a DVD via an XP machine.

    Then, when the time comes, I can update a mates 8.1 Laptop.

    He hates 8.1 so Iíll need to be able to roll back if he finds 10 even more confusing.

    I see the USB Creation tool here, not sure if you follow the links if it takes you to the ISO: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    Good luck finding the updates. You may find one of them, the rest arent on the download site

    You run the tool to select the version you want and select ISO

    He would be better doing the upgrade himself because there would be a lot less pitfalls ie Home or Pro

    This is the Tool https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10 will do the upgrade plus down load ISO for a clean install

    I think the updates have a link from here:

    Well I went with psycikís suggestion of using a flashdrive.

    I made the flashdrive bootable with "Rufus" (what a neat little standalone programme) and now have the iso image expanded onto the flashdrive. Yet to be tested so hereís hoping.

    This just leaves the issue of all the updates.

    Now there seems to be a conflict of information on Google about this so I wonder if we can get a definitive answer as to if it is possible to download them (read save) and install them as required?

    Iím thinking along the lines of one update causing trouble and needing to be uninstalled or reinstalled.

    I wouldnít want to be uninstalling and reinstalling all the patches every time one crashes the system.
