The ISO should be burned to a DVD or a USB flash drive using the appropriate software. Once you have the installation media properly prepared, boot off it to begin the installation.

Yes of course, I agree with you rider. ISO should be burn on DVD or USB drive using approprieate tool , but I wonder what about ISO to .exe and can it ( .exe ) boot like a bootable DVD or USB ?! Maybe some users have no got CD/DVD drive . I just ask for practical reasons.... Thats all.
I got optical drive and if necessary threre is no problem to me to make brand new bootable DVD.
What about daemon tool and virtual drive ?!?

Would they not have USB ports either? How do you propose getting the ".exe version" onto a computer?

Even if you were able to somehow launch an .exe that could install Windows (which you cannot because you need to be outside of Windows to do it), you would then format the drive or partition and BAM, your files would be gone as well as the old Windows OS that the program was running under. See, it cannot work.
Microsoft HAS made upgrade installs like the upgrade to Windows 10 option but is you are doing a clean install, you still need the DVD to be burned to do it anyway. AND that is Microsoft, NOT you and me. AND an upgrade is not an install, it just installs different parts for W10 than W7 or W8 had, changes the registry, cleans that part up and goes back to do another part of the operating system until all changes are made. Just working out all possibilities of what might need changing from all possible combinations and making sure it all will continue working requires many, many, many, many hundreds thousands of man-hours of work and testing before it an be done. All to convince us to leave our comfortable environments and move onto their newest.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

........o yes, and what about users who do not have the ability to boot from a usb stick?! In fact , the .Exe files triggers the installation and that is it.

My proposal follows and is simple :

Regardless of everything, I'm old-fashioned and still use sliced iso files.

My question was simple and I would not like to excite the topic further...

Hi there again :)
here is a final solution :)

Download the iso (Win7 Ultimate for example)
Open Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc).
Shrink your current drive by 5GB.
Format the unallocated space in NTFS.
Assign it a drive letter. I recommend using Z:, as it is easy to remember and to use.
Extract the files in the ISO using 7z to your new partition you just created.
Using EasyBCD, go to the "Add New Entry" tab.
Click on WinPE.
Give your boot entry a name. I used Windows 7 Installation
In the third box, select YourDrive:\Sources\Boot.wim
Save it.
Reboot.
When the boot menu comes up, select the entry you created using EasyBCD.
When the installation screen comes up, follow the instructions.
Enjoy your Windows 7 installation. )


I'm a Linux user and imediatly go back to Linux :)
Everything best my friends :)

Why in the world would you want to do that? I see no point to it.

By the time you did all that, you could have driven to your local electronics store and bought an DVD drive and a Windows 10 DVD.

Have you ever heard of kiss?
