For those that dont have a spare USB stick or DVD !

Hello Community.

i am reading a lot a from people not upgrading to a new build because they don't have a spare DVD or a 4 Gb USB stick handy.

Well you don't need all that.

Simply use your favorite mounting tool (i use Magic Disk), mount the image, start the upgrade process.
You might see an message about Magic Disk having to be reinstalled, dont worry, and continue.
You'll see, upgrade works just fine without wasting DVDs or time coping files to a USB drive.

Have fun

First off, welcome to sevenforums markushaZe.

If you have a look around the forums this topic has been covered for every OS that has been upgradeable.

Also the reason that most people have been wanting to use usb sticks etc is when you are doing a fresh install and want it to be quicker than the usual DVD route.
