yes, but how do I install this after downloading? can I install the upgrade from the command line? – Alex Mills Sep 14 '14 at 21:30
I can I only burn the .iso to disc and then book from there – Alex Mills Sep 14 '14 at 21:32

This is a Virtualbox setup, so burning to disc or USB isn't necessary. Just point the virtual CD at the ISO and boot from that.

the question is about downloading iso file not burning it – Ahmed Jerbi Jun 3 at 20:16
Yes, Ahmed, but unfortunately I am unable to comment on Alex's comment above. So I had to post as an answer. No need to knock it down. – Cranky Jun 5 at 13:53
I didn't downvoted but it's preferable to either improve or remove your answer. – Ahmed Jerbi Jun 5 at 15:01
