    YES. After you have upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7, you can finally do a clean install. I would wait a little while first though. Make sure Microsoft actually has recorded your upgrade. ;)

    Profit

    You're welcome.

    Sorry..

    Why does a clean install require you to burn your iso to disk.

    If you do download from M.Soft just extract the iso image and load the files onto a USB drive. ( formatted correctly, of course )

    Some users are accustomed to burning ISOs onto discs. I find that reliable compared to the USB version, if you asked me.

    You should have explained what formatted means, if doing a UEFI or BIOS install or you just confuse.

    For the same reason when you buy any OS on disk, You can use USB drive, alot of people are just used to burning ISO's to disk, either way, but alot of people don't have the knowledge to use USB, that's why it's easier to say burn to disk:D

    He's right, lot's of people are still using disks, I see it here. Some of us just love the flash drive and never had problems with booting them and we use PURE UEFI.

    Some people are placing win 10 on 5 series. Lots of people do things the old way.

    Get the iso for the os from Microsoft using the media creation tool. You can "burn" the iso to a USB drive using Rufus. Just google both media creation tool and Rufus to find the sites.
