    Plug in desired USB stick for installer use.

    select disk <x> (x being the USB disk you want to use, you can tell by the size in MB)
    clean
    create part pri
    select part 1
    format fs=fat32 quick
    active
    exit

    Then use WINRAR/7zip to extract the ISO to the USB. It will boot fine under UEFI and Legacy environments.
    Copying this for future reference. Believe I've seen the procedure before but thanks for posting again.
    Me too!

    That's my go to method when I want to be sure it works with UEFI. It's in the tutorial for creating a UEFI thumb drive, option two here, UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows

    I'll be giving all this a try today because I can't update/upgrade 10TP(posted on another thread @ Ten forums that it is not possible with surfsticks.
    Gabriel Aul‏@GabeAul Nov 19 @helipetr This is a WU code for Metered Networks, WU is designed not to download over metered to prevent expensive data charges. Try wired.
    Found out at betanews someone posted an ISO at Mega so I'll try that(using my test machine of course and malwarebytes).

    So the iso download for build 10041 from Mega is finished, and the scan with Malwarebytes came up clean as did a custom scan to Downloads Library. I'm in the process of extracting to the USB now.

    As several people have already said, this only works if the OS you are upgrading is bootable. If not you have to create a bootable install media, DVD or USB flash.

    I upgraded my 8.1 Laptop to the initial Win 10 TP by mounting the ISO and running setup from there.

    I did it the way David said to, and it booted and installed 10TP in UEFI mode for a clean install, KUDOS David

    The setup.exe overrides it all.

    You have yet to respond to any of the posts stating this only works if the OS being upgraded is bootable.
