  1. ISO


    I downloaded the windows 10 iso but don't know how to install it. I have a external hd to put it on so do I put it on the external hd and double click on it or what? This is the first time I have dealt with an iso so I'm new at this.

    :)

    Windows 10 Spotlight - Strange behavior after Fall Creators Update

    I am having this same issue. I can get it to work by messing around deleting settings.dat file flipping back and forth but the problem is it does not work for new accounts on an imaged computer. You have to mess around with it.

    I would love for spotlight to be working on my sysprep imaged so all users get it.

    Just realize you have to do an in place upgrade before you can do a clean install. The ISO file is like a zip file, you need to extract the contents in order to use it.

    See paragraphs b. and c. here:
    How to extract the contents from an .ISO file without burning the .ISO to disc. - Office Deployment Support Team Blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs


    Once you have the ISO file mounted or extracted, you will want to run setup.exe on the drive it is mounted or extracted to from within Windows 7.

    A bit more explanation on the .iso file: it is an image of the original disc and used to make an exact duplicate copy of that disc when it is not available. The .iso file format is quite popular for making Linux LiveCD or LiveDVD available for download which then is used with a CD/DVD burning program to create that disc. The difference between that and the Windows .iso is the Linux is also bootable but can be used to run the computer and programs without having to actually install Linux, quite useful for testing Linux but also for booting a Windows computer and doing some basic testing such as seeing what works like sound, Networking, etc., and copying/backing up files.

    Another note.... when you run setup.exe to do an in place upgrade from within your Windows 7 - if you get asked for a product key, stop and cancel the upgrade because you have more than likely downloaded the wrong version of Windows 10 to upgrade to.

  8. ISO

    What I did was moved the iso file to my external hd and then double clicked on it and then double clicked on the setup.exe and it worked. I now have a clean install of windows 10 on my new computer.

  9. Clean install or upgrade install? What is your definition of clean install? Is Windows 10 activated?

  10. It was a new computer so I did a clean install so I wouldn't have all that crapware on it.

  12. BAD move. Read post #3 -- where you were told you would have to do a in-place Upgrade before you did a clean install. If this is the first time Win10 has been on this PC, it will never activate the way you installed it.

  15. Never mind - thanks for the info re: new PC with Win10.


    I type too slow *Wink

    I'm a little confused ...
    Your specs state Windows 7, but you say on my new computer. Windows 7 does not have native ISO mounting but you said moved the iso file to my external hd and then double clicked on it

    Soooo, is the computer a new computer with Windows 8.1 on it?

    It sounds as though you did an upgrade by launching setup.exe from the ISO, I'm just not sure how you did that with Windows 7.

    You mentioned a clean install and that doesn't match the description of the upgrade you posted, did you upgrade and then do a clean install, or just the upgrade (setup.exe launched from the ISO as you described)?

    The reason members ask is that no one wants you to be surprised if the installation stops booting (a trial install instead of a real upgrade).

    Use the information below to compare your install - don't post the information or images from your machine unless you redact the activation and license IDs.

    Don't worry about the Home/Pro differences - the images are from two different machines.
    What IS important is that the ISO you downloaded matches the original OS edition (Home, Pro,....)

    To determine the install status of your machine, execute the following commands in a Command Prompt (Admin) window:
    slmgr /dlv
    slmgr /xpr
    req query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost /s

    You are running a system successfully upgraded to Windows 10 if
    slmgr /dlv does NOT have an Evaluation End Date
    - and -
    there are no keys under WindowsSelfHost
    You are running an evaluation of Windows 10, (aka the Insider Program) if:
    slmgr /dlv reports an Evaluation End Date
    - or -
    reg query returns any keys under WindowsSelfhost
    It's also possible that you are running the 30-day trial of Windws 10.
    That can be determined form the slmgr /dlv report - the wording might be different, but the information should be in the same area as the Evaluation End Date information. It might have the word expire in the label reference.
    Some confusion might have arisen when people 'migrated' from the Insider builds to an upgraded system. If a system was upgraded but you did not leave the Insider program, then the upgraded system is still participating in the Technical Preview and will be offered build updates when MS releases them to the flight rings. If that is what you intended then there is no issue - just be aware that you are running Preview builds, not an upgraded system. You can always do a Clean install to get back to a Current build install (RTM, Retail... whatever name works for you).

    Below the fold are reports from two of my machines
    • Win7 Home Prem upgraded to Windows 10
      Fowwloed by a Clean install on that machine

    • Insider Technical Preview
      currently on build 10.0.525
    slmgr /dlv & slmgr /xpr
    Upgraded system Insider Preview install
