    Should I download win10 and burn an iso to DVD?


    I did that with 8.1 pro and successfully restored a broken install, booted dvd and repaired the pc.

    Then I upgraded to windows 10 using the media tool and it is working fine.
    But I do not have an iso of win10 burnt to a dvd.

    Will I need a win10 dvd?
    Should I do this now before the free upgrade grace period ends in a year?
    What is best way to do this, do you have a link?
    I also did download a win10 iso, but not sure what to do with it, outside of the media tool, can I just use software to burn that iso to dvd?

    What do you think?

    You can use the Media Creation Tool to create either a boot USB stick or a bootable DVD: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/windows10

    Just go ahead & do it. Can't do any harm to have an installation DVD for Windows 10!

    Yes you can burn this to DVD with any burning software.

    Since win 10 is activated, having the DVD install, I could do a clean install if say the drive crashed and it needed another hard drive.
    Or lets say the MB fried, could I then do a clean install of win10 on another PC using the 8.1 key I used to install 8.1 pro, and MS would activate the new PC?

    Ok, downloaded in Ubuntu and burning. To do this is easy, just write click the file to see burn option.
