Mike, I believe it is if you use UEFI BIOS. Not with MBR though.

Yea, used to with the MBR installs. I've seen it sometimes put the Recovery last. It doesn't matter really. I'm pretty sure you can delete the recovery if you wanted to, but I think you lose some of the recovery options. You can still get them with the install disk though. I'd just rather keep it.

I wasn`t in the mood to create a partition first

I hooked up the W10 drive to just to update it and after that update something went caflueeee and 10 wouldn`t boot anymore, and startup repair could not fix it.

So I just deleted everything and reinstalled using build 10586, then updated it to the Anniversary edition.

I`ll have to look, but I didn`t make any changes to the drive as far as MBR or GPT goes.

What version do you get if downloaded using brink`s Tut ?

Get build 1607. Whether you Install into MBR or UEFI is how you Do the USB with Rufus and how you boot into the USB drive.

If you are using a Kingston USB, on your one time boot menu you will have 2 entries for it. Kingston USB or UEFI Kingston. The first one will install in MBR, the UEFI one will install in UEFI. Just make sure your BIOS is set for which one you choose. All of my Asus boards are, by default, set for either one.

This will download the 1607 build. Access Denied

I used a dvd and always choose the 1st option, non UEFI If not I`d have to keep switching to boot W7


I guess what I meant to say was, what build # does it download ?

I mean there`s no way to tell unless you install it.

Like shown here with the AE

That is the build number, 1607, that it downloads. Whether the last Cumulative Update is in it, I don't know.

Hi,
Yep I have not clean installed but the new build did add the recover partition on the end of my ssd
Yes I deleted it after rolling back out of the anniversary build and haven't used it since

If it were mbr I would think the 100mb partition would be ntfs not efi
I'm on other os in bios not windows uefi compatibility no sense in switching back and forth for 10 I use 7 primarily anyway.
Besides this little reminder can always return
After installing Microsoft Update KB3133977 for Windows 7, some users may encounter a "Secure Boot Violation" , which makes the system fail to boot into the operating system.
