A few days ago I dwnloaded the media creation tool. the download was aroung 3Gb and took 3 HRS.

I wanted to burn it to a CD but there was no button labeled burn or anything like it. Then the program just closed.

 

I think the download is still on my computer but how can I find It? and maybe run it again. I'm wondering if it would fit on just one DVD disk. Or could I just format the factory partition, which is 10.2 GB and then put it there?

YES. that's exactly what I had in mind. But since the computer already has a recovery partition, which would recover the computer to Windows 7.

I would like it to recover to Windows 10. Either from a CD or from the existing recovery partition. by the way, thanks for the Quick reply.

True. Except after July 30, when Windows 10 is no longer free? I wonder what they will charge then for windows 10.

Why not just install Windows 10 now ?

 

Also Burn an ISO to  CD or DVD.....so you will always have a spare copy.

 

Once win 10 is installed....you can reset it (and also keep your pics and music and files)....this procedure reinstalls a fresh copy of win10.  You will lose any programs that you have installed that are not part of the windows store. eg VLC player...

 

Putting win 10 on a thumb drive is possibly even better....less likely to get damaged. An 8gb thumb drive is all you need. Use

to set up the thumb drive.

Thanks very much Condobloker. I did install Windows 10.But wanted to have a copy just in case. I actually found the windows 10 creation tool, it was in my documents folder and I was able to burn it to just one DVD disk. So I'm all set now.
