    Windows 10 Reset

    Hi, my first post on this forum. I downloaded W10 on the last day of the free upgrade and now want to give my laptop away, so Id like to reset it. Would I have to burn an ISO file to use as recovery or will W10 OS revert on its own once I hit reset? I have the W7 OS disk that came with the laptop and also I made an Iso disk for it when it was new, if that info helps.

    Im also confused about entering the info once it resets, such as name, country, etc. Im shipping it to Canada.
