Win 10 Home ISO file too big for 4.7Gb DVD+R

Using the media creation tool, I got a Windows 10 Home ISO file of 4,641,536 KB.  Using Windows Explorer and Trying to burn it to a "4.7 Gb" DVD+R gave me the error message, "The disc image file is too large and will not fit on the recordable disc."  How do I get a bootable install disk out of this? (My laptop BIOS can not boot from USB stick.)

Hi GEstes,

We recently refreshed our media for Windows 10 and it grew beyond the 4.7Gb limit of a normal DVD.  As mentioned below, you can use a USB or you can purchase and burn a Dual-Layer DVD which has the 8.5Gb.

Sorry for the confusion.
