Use either option 1 or I prefer option 2 here to create the bootable installation media
USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

It's very important to do the entire install Without a internet connection
Until you manually install the 2 updates listed on the other thread.

Then Activate windows
Then manually check for updates.

No problem.

Since I have no knowledge to create a bootable USB drive, I'll burn the iso on a DVD, clean install, install the 2 updates, validate, than go on line to check for important updates.

Hope won't get Win 10 upgrade updates with important option?

It says to install 1 update alone, probably net framework related..

Does it look fine to you?

Best regards!

yep just refer back if you need
All of the win-10 stuff are recommended updates so if you use these setting they will not be mixed into the important category

But these are the 10 related ones to avoid but as stated they will all be in the Optional section,

Thanks again, I do too use this option. You are one highly knowledgeable smart young man.

Highly appreciate your assistance...

Hope it works the 4th time, I don't mind clean installing but spending a 3--5 hr session with MS remote access with a phone in one hand talking and watching what they are doing is a real headache.

Burning the iso using Imageburn is fine, should it be set to bootable iso?

Best regards!

Thanks I have never used ImgBurn before so I don't know anything about it
I just use the rufus one because I don't have much luck with dvd burning.
