    Windows 3.1 > Windows 10

    The USB has to be formatted Fat32
    Copy or Extract all contents inside ISO to USB

    Run Setup.exe from within a windows environment and you get an upgrade

    Booting from the USB loads WinPE ( boot.wim ) into memory and you can then clean install the OS

    If you bring up your boot menu before booting into Setup USB you will have two options - legacy Boot and UEFI Boot..
    You Firmware has to be set to see both options by setting UEFI with legacy Support..

    The Setup Media contains both Legacy Support (Boot Folder + Bootmgr) and UEFI Support (EFI Folder + Bootmgr.efi)

    You can also force the Setup Media to boot to a certain firmware supported mode by deleting a file or folder..

    To Force Setup media to boot EFI - Delete "Bootmgr"
    To Force Setup media to boot Legacy - Delete "EFI" Folder

    Hey, we all have been there, taking nothing away from your OP.

    Takes a good man to apologize.

Hi guys, I'm wondering why this security patch for a zero day flaw in IE 11 is not checked by default? Surely it should be.
