Create a Windows 10 upgrade install DVD

Instead of relying entirely on downloaded files, you can create a Windows 10 upgrade installation DVD. This is done using the file MediaCreationTool.exe which can be downloaded directly from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=691209.   The upgrade must be installed on a PC with a valid copy of Windows 7 or 8.1; otherwise a product key must be purchased from Microsoft.

In this case, an installation DVD was created for a another PC.
