Create Installation Disc For Windows 10

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015 by | Filed Under: Windows 10

Several of you have said you also want an additional copy of Windows 10 in addition to your upgrade. Sharty writes:  Hi, okay, so I downloaded Windows 10. yeah.  But I want to make a copy of it to put on a disc.  Not exactly clear on how to do that.  Can you help me??

Sure!  Click here to go the Software Download page for Windos 10. Once there, you can download the media creation tool.

When you download the tool, you can choose Run to start the process or Save, if you want to get to it later.


A window will open. Choose Create installation media for another PC.


Select your language, edition and architecture.


Choose Window 10 Home if you’re upgrading from the following systems:

Windows 7 Starter

Windows 7 Home Basic

Windows 7 Home Premium

Windows 8/8.1

Windows 8.1 with Bing

Windows 10 Home


Use Windows 10 Pro if you’re upgrading from:

Windows 7 Professional

Windows 7 Ultimate

Windows 8 Pro

Windows 8.1 Pro

Windows 8/8.1 Professional with Media Center

Windows 10 Pro

Select your media. You can choose between a flash drive and burning an ISO file that you’ll burn to DVD later.


When the media is created, choose Finish.

    Here is a precaution I will offer: don’t use a flash drive larger than 32 GB if you plan to reuse the drive for other purposes afterward.

    I used a 128 GB flash drive that was turned into a 32 GB flash drive in the process of having Windows 10 create an install flash drive. I formatted the drive and it will only retrieve 32 GB of space despite its original pre-Windows 10 install size of 128 GB.

    NOT HAPPY! So be forewarned.


  2. […] Aurel – it would probably be just as quick to do the upgrade from the Windows update on their PC. Also, if their PC has been offered the upgrade, you’ll know it’s capable of running Windows 10.  But you could create the installation media ahead of time. […]
