Thought so! Anyway, I'm now back on Windows 8.1 Glad I always make an image to revert back to as the Recovery option in Windows 10 failed yet again error message - You can't revert back to your previous OS as files are missing. :hihi:

 

Third time now on Windows 10 I've had problems going back...

 

My advice would be to make an image first before upgrading.

Here you go

 

Thank you.

 

I did download the link from the Windows site but it's not a disk image. How do I install burn it to disk and run it?

I'd back up all your photos and documents just in case.

for reference it might not just be in $WINDOWS.~BT, mine was at 4.09gb - I went and downloaded the image from MS to create an install usb stick and this download 2.67gb and now when check drive it shows $Windows.~WS which contain the install files

 

When you create the media from the tool the installation files on USB are less than 4GB

 

I'm debating whether to just perform a clean install on a new drive and leave my Windows 8.1 Pro drive with the OS incase decide to revert back

For anyone installing Windows 10, I'd suggest you do a clean install. Microsoft has released the full clean install ISO's now too:

*edit* So investigating further, Microsoft HAD released the ISO's but has now pulled them. Make of that what you will.

No they haven't - use the link it my previous post, it takes you directly to the MS downloads for Windows 10 - I performed the download just before my post and just checked the link and it's still available

Like you say, definitely still available for download. I used the same link downloaded 40 minutes ago.
