NO,
You just have to let the first pile of updates, 1 of them will be Service pack 1, update your comp.

All done and working , thank you very much . One last question I have Windows 7 on a USB Drive the 1st one I done and it worked . Will I be able to copy from one USB Drive to another , or can you load different versions of Windows etc on the same USB Drive and choose which version to Install It's just that the USB Drive I put the Windows 7 on was 64GB . Thank you very much for the help of you and anybody else on this site .

You can create multi install USB sticks (or DVDs), but it's not a straightforward process, and I think it may be frowned upon by Microsoft,

You are better off creating individual sticks for each version, most versions will fit on a 4GB USB stick, so it's not a great expense

I personally keep a number of .ISO files for installs and just load them onto sticks as I need them

EDIT
alex's coding playground Download allows you to make a backup .ISO file from the USB you have if you want to store it for the future and re-use your 64 GB stick

Then obviously you haven`t installed Service Pack 1 yet, no ????

You should have used an installer with Service Pack 1, all you had to do was ask

Forget IE11 for now, just install Chrome.

A 64 GB usb stick is a waste for that purpose, as mentioned you can create an all in one installer with both 32 and 64 bit versions all on 1 dvd.

It`s all covered in the tutorials

Afternoon Barman58 , I have always used dvd's to burn and install windows whatever version . I built this PC as I had a bit spare cash at the time and it looked easy on YOUTUBE . Widows 10 installed OK till I deleted the Admin rights . But every time I put a burnt DVD Windows 7 in the spare harddrive all I got was press any key to reboot . You know what I meen . I watched someone on Youtube and took the specs for a gaming PC on Ebay , so the parts would hopefully match up . The only bit I was unsure of was where the start leads went as it was a slightly different motherboard to mine , he said if you get them in the wrong order the PC wont start and you will have to do them again . But everything seems ok , That,s why I decided to try a USB flash drive because all the DVD's I tried didn't install probly 6 or 7 in all . I kept the windows 7 and the USB drive ( which at first didn't work ) , after trying all the burnt dvd's again before chucking them . I was left with the USB drive and to my surprise it worked , and windows 7 installed . I bought it in Argos they had a sale on I bought the larger size thinking I could maybe use it for storage or to transfer programmes or videos from another hardrive . That's why I came to use the USB drive in the first place , iv since got some from Amazon , so they are there if I want them . When you see people on Youtube and other websites saying download from here burn to dvd and Windows 7 or windows 10 , they forget to mention you will be on about 96 hours downloading updates etc and then another 4 months trying to fathom out how to install them in the first place . Happy days , I think I might just do without that Netgear Nighthawk router or go to another site . I'm going to mark this as closed . Thanks to everyone for their help .
