There you go, another rude comment.

I`m still waiting for you to tell me the facts ?

Where will someone get an iso file if their hard drive dies ?

A true comment, not rude. If it feels rude to you that is only because you are filing to accept the truth.

How you get the ISO's of teh preview builds? Those are available despite of the EDSs. So there will be ISOs for the RTM builds as well. The migrants will be allowed to perform clean installs, so they definitely will be allowed to access to ISOs.

Otherwise that clean install tweet will become a false statement; and no responsible person makes a false statement in front of the whole world.

I cannot tell a future fact at the present time, but will not go against the anticipation.

From Microsoft, they have said ISO's will be available, I can't give you the link you want as the OS isn't out yet

Well see there ya go, now you are making sense, therefore, I told the guy he would have to install 7 or 8.1 again and upgrade again to 10, until iso`s are out that`s all you can do.

And of course I know you can make an iso out of the existing OS. And resetting is not a clean install.

"Otherwise that clean install tweet will become a false statement; and no responsible person makes a false statement in front of the whole world".

Ya, that`s never happened has it ?

Worst case imaginary scenario: There will never be official Windows 10 ISO images available for download, so those assembling their computers by themselves have to dig around the Interwebs and PC stores to find first an official Windows 7 or 8.1 for the initial install, in order to be able to get Windows 10 ESD downloaded for the final install.

Do you really think Microsoft is so stupid? That the only way to get / buy their latest OS would be to get an older OS first? Really?

Of course that will not be the case, of course there will ISO images available, at least at Microsoft Store.

You have made it quite clear you will not follow the official information given by Microsoft in Twitter and their emails to consumers because "they don't put money in your pocket". OK, although I personally find it very strange that someone only reads news, tweets and emails from the people / posters / writes who pay him, you could at least try to stay factual and realistic.

If and when you upgrade from Windows 7, 8.1 or an earlier build of Windows 10 using the Windows Update route, upgrading with the ESD file WU downloads for you, you can always create your own ISO. Of course this only works for those who read the instructions even if they are not paid for reading them: ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File - Windows 10 Forums.

What`s not factual about saying he would have to start over if he didn`t have the W10 install media.

No, they would just go buy Windows 10 off the store shelf, just like we did with XP, Vsta, 7 , 8 , 8.1 etc.

That`s exactly what they are doing aren`t they ? But no one said get or buy, You either have it installed (W7 W8.1) and upgrade or you buy it (w10), correct ?

Why is that strange ?


I used your tut Kari, to make a W10 iso, and no I wasn`t paid for it

First I don't really see any rudeness to mount to anything.

I see confusion that some how a few tweets is not going to solve.

Surly this close to release date Microsoft knows how Windows 10 will be released for free and paid for. Tweadly dee's and tweadly dumb's is not the way to release the information. Personal emails to certain people also is not a proper method of putting out the proper information to billions of people.

If by chance false information is tweated they will just claim their account was hacked and all will be forgiven.

I will just wait for Microsoft to put the needed information on their site in a professional fashion.

The only thing I know for sure about Windows 10 is if and when I want it I want to be able to just buy it, install it, use it.

I do not want to have to convert this to that and that to this to install it. All that does is give more chances of corruption and a bad install. Except for those that do everything perfect and I'm not one of those.

We shouldn't have to wait for long (I hope) for a proper understanding from Microsoft exactly what is and what isn't.

Just a thought.

When Microsoft puts out the final release I would recommend waiting a while.
Let all the counterfeiters get their free copy and out of Microsoft servers so you can get a uninterrupted download.

Even though Boozad posted the upgrade matrix, doesn't mean Microsoft will follow it or will even do what Gabriel has confirmed. We have a saying in the U.S. the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing and this happens in a lot businesses.

I know that it's not included in Win10 so I'm looking for an alternative.

Failing that I can always stick with Win7...

Vlc some have reported it works to play dvd but I haven't tested it yet. In fact, I am getting ready to try it now. I just have to keep my volume down because it could blow the speakers when using vlc player according to dell.

I'm really more concerned with Live TV and digital tuner support.

I'm not sure why people mention DVD playback when it comes to discontinuing WMC, it has almost nothing to do with it.

Media Portal doesn't look too bad.

Not panicking at all, just asking questions, you can`t believe tweets.

I could care less about Windows 10, and frankly I wish people would stop talking about it here at Windows 7 Forums
