    Default Windows 10 ISO is too big for DVD - The disc image file is too large

    Microsoft has recently refreshed its media for Windows 10 and it has grown beyond the 4.7GB limit of a normal DVD. If you are using the Media Creation Tool to burn it to a 4.7GB DVD, you may receive an error - The disc image file is too large and will not fit on the recordable disc.

    Microsoft has said that you should now use a USB or you can purchase and burn a Dual-Layer DVD which has the 8.5GB.

    I think Microsoft will refresh new builds to make it to accommodate in regular 4.7 GB DVDs. I hope Microsoft does it else it will be very inconvenient to users.

    It seems bad for some people, but i always prefer one USB stick as bootable device as an alternative if something wrong with my Windows.

    Yes, I noticed that as well. Hence I used a Pendrive to install Windows 10 on my Laptop.
    I went straight to Windows Media Creation tool page and got a copy for installation of Windows 10 on my system.
    Then I burned it to a Pendrive and booted into Windows using that.
