    Can the $Windows. ~BT be created if one has a corresponding iso and can Windows be upgraded from there?

    You shouldn't. It will mess with the process if you do it yourself.
    You should only run windows setup from the root of a windows dvd\usb

    Thanks for the advice :). Actually I was concerned about the activation if I upgraded from an ISO.

    1. If I upgraded from an ISO (on a usb stick) without an internet connection, will it be activated?

    2. If I upgraded from an ISO (mounted on the HDD) without an internet connection, will it be activated?

    I have a legit W8.1 Pro w/ Media Center (Dreamspark+Legit Media Center Add on)..

    Thanks :)

    Dismiss that imbecile bugger, get the ISO from MS and start the upgrade manually. Actually no need to wait :D.

    The media creation tool can be used to upgrade to windows 10. microsoft. com/en-us/software-download/windows10
    You can download the iso or upgrade using the tool (it activates after installation if your wondering). If you choose the upgrade option in the tool make sure your system locale is set as English(US) or it'll give you an error.

    Not 100% true. I have the setup files zipped (minus the wims) and extract them on the fly to c:\Arch as needed, and then export the SKU i want to upgrade to. Its how i handle multi wim \ multi arch upgrade setups.

    This is simple autoit upgrade script. Its missing the gui that you supply the index.

    Code:
     If $Upgrades_Wim = " " Then
    Global $Upgrades_Wim = FileOpenDialog("Install.wim file", $SourcesDir, "Install files (*.*)", 16)
    EndIf
    
    $WimIndexUpgradeRead = GUICtrlRead($EnterInputWimIndexUpgrade)
    
    SplashTextOn("Upgrade to 10", "Preparing Setup Files.  If it fails remove USBs and retry " & $Homedrive & "\" & @OSArch & "\setup.exe", -1, 40, -1, 0, 0, "", 10)
    
    _Unzip(@ScriptDir & "\Apps\" & @OSArch & ".7z", $Homedrive & "\" & @OSArch)
    RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $imagex & ' /Export "' & $Upgrades_Wim & '" ' & $WimIndexUpgradeRead & ' "' & $Homedrive & '\' & @OSArch & '\sources\install.wim"')
    SplashOff()
    
    Run($Homedrive & '\' & @OSArch & '\setup.exe')
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Start Upgrade", "The upgrade process is about to begin.  If it fails remove any USB sticks and retry " & $Homedrive & "\" & @OSArch & "\setup.exe")
    Exit
