    I always thought this was stupid and a security risk. Why have to login to admin to have to create a Windows 10 media disk ? That or at least let us login as admin from a limited user account.


    I have admin rights and know what the password is that is not the problem.

    The problem is I don't want to directly use my Admin account to just make a Windows 10 media disk. Mainly because I can't use my pc while that is happening. I could sure but nothing is installed on my Admin account.

    The thing is, what if someone make such a disk, burn that image to DVD (don't need admin for that) then boot from dvd then wipe the lot out? Also did you forget that you can use the MCT to do an upgrade too? The MCT can be harmful if you are not careful :)
