    Cannot delete ISO file after upgrading to Windows 10


    Hiya....I mounted my windows 10 ISO file with Magic Disk to upgrade only to find out that Windows 10 does not support Magic Disk. I uninstalled the drive it was using in device manager but still does not allow me to delete it. Everytime I reboot the ISO shows as mounted again. How can I stop this and delete the file please?

    :)

  2. adding drivers to windows 10 iso file

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    I would like to inform you that you cannot install Windows 10 ISO with injecting drivers into the ISO file as the Windows 10 ISO comes with basic drivers for installation and you have to install the drivers after the installation is complete.

    Install, upgrade, & activate

    Hope this information helps you.

    Windows 10 upgrade through ISO file

    Will upgrading from the Windows 10 ISO deletes my files and software?

    If a virtual CD/DVD mounted with the ISO appears under "This PC" then right click on it->Eject

    BTW, did you know that in Windows 10 you can mount ISO and IMG disk image files simply by double clicking them or right clicking them and selecting Mount? No additional software is needed.

    you have to unmount the iso fil with the program you mounted it with aka Magic Disk.
