    didnt know where to post this so if any mod feels the need to move this please do . i used media creation tool to download and create an iso of win 10 home whiah was later burnt without any hiccups .
    i then used windows media creation tool to download and create an iso of win 10 pro 32 and 64 bit iso . no problems there . problems now is that the iso is 5.6 gb big and doesnt fit on single dvd . is there a workaround this apart from creating two discs , one for 32bit and one for 64 bit discs . thanks

    Is correct, the downloader will download both 32 and 64bit architectures. You need to create a USB Key or use a DVD-DL.

    i used the media creation tool to download the win 10 home 32/64 bit version only 2.44gb download .no problem there .
    i also used the media creation tool to download the win 10 pro 32/64 bit version . 5.6 gb download . problem there .
    i will use the media creation tool to download the win 10 pro 32/64 bit version again and see how it goes .
    bear with me im on a slow connection

    ps just a note . if i select usb instead of iso it tells me that i need at least 6 gb space . if that helps . postponing my download until this last note is verified by yours truly

    Wintron....I used the Microsoft tool and I also have the .iso that I created both 32/64 and the size is 3.1GB..This is way smaller that what you are saying. You did something wrong?? That easily fits on a regular DVD. The ones I have downloaded to have both Home and Pro(You have to find these online) are over 5GB this has to be what you have. Has too.

    yes sure why go to all the hassle if i just posted a good way to make your problem vanish. the windows usb/dvd download tool which i linked up there is working fine since years. just get yourself an iso and put it on a usb/dvd wtih my tool no need for this media creation crap tool.
    i even gave you the names of the isos and she SHA1 to verfiy it. do i really have to get a link too now? will you atleast do it now then?
    do you need 32bit or 64 bit?

    it's an homemade iso with your downloaded update files made with media creation tool. so it's no official iso. either you get a usb stick or dual layer dvd to put this homemade iso on a install medium or you do what i say and download one of those REAL and legit iso files which are aroound 3.8gb and put them on a normal dvd with the tool i provided.
    there is nothing else you can do

    there is no official iso which is 5.6gb

    Wintron, you can not have both 32 bit and 64 bit on a single layer DVD. It is 5.6 gigs and will not fit. You have to chose either 32 bit OR 64 bit to put on the DVD. But, why even use DVD's? They are out dated. Use USB Flash Drives, at least an 8 gig, and put your 32/64 bit 5.6 gig iso on it using the Windows tool?

    To answer your question about not having to enter a key, you are correct.
