    Yes, i use my usb installation for windows as well, my concern is if the usb memory stick breaks or stops working, then i wont be able to install windows.
    You will always be able to download an ISO file and create a bootable Windows 10 installation USB from any computer.

    You could create a second USB to have in case the first one should break or stop working.

    I already have enough USB memory sticks, I really dont want more laying around than I already got.

    I see a few unlucky scenarios where this wouldn't be the case. Windows refuses to boot, the usb memory stick doesn't work or the backup fails. It would be really unlucky, yes, but in that case it might be good to have the installation cd.

    You keep mentioning "CD" Windows does not fit on a CD.
    What do you mean?

    I mean you can not create a W10 installer with a CD. You need a blank DVD.

    The latest version of W10, the Fall Creators update, takes up 4.41GB of used space on one of my 16GB sticks.

    And it takes up 95% of a blank 4.7GB (actually 4.38GB in Windows) DVD.

    Hi,
    A single version installer might be smaller on a dvd :/

    also, where can i buy the original disc? so far this is what i found.
    The link you posted is for a DVD that someone burned with their computer. You wouldn't even know if they used an unmodified ISO file from Microsoft or not. You would have to buy a genuine OEM system builder's edition of Windows 10 to get a genuine DVD, or burn one from an ISO file downloaded directly from Microsoft.

    And who knows if it actually works ?

    I would never buy an OS off Ebay.

    Not to mention it's totally illegal to sell that disc.

    Yes exactly. But i dont have a DVD burner. That's why i want to buy the windows 10 CD..
    Are you saying you don't have a DVD drive? If so, what use would a bootable Windows 10 install DVD be?

    If you are saying you don't have DVD burning software, then you are mistaken - you do, it's called File Explorer. Download the official ISO from Microsoft using the MCT. Right-click on the .iso file and select 'Burn disc image'. Make sure you tick 'Verify disc after burning'.

    Since Windows 10 gets a new "creators" update every 6 months it's a good idea to keep up with the latest versions with the recommendations that have been posted.
    --- I would also add creating a USB Recovery drive.
    --- The Windows 10 Boot / Recovery DVD - 64 / 32 bit - Recover Reinstall Repair CD Disc you are asking about looks very interesting, but I doubt it will be up-to-date as time goes on.

    Although I use USB's now, I did use Windows 10 built-in DVD burner a couple of times and it worked fine.

    Last but not least, create a system image backup: an advantage to that is your applications are included if you have to ever resort to using the system image backup.

    The disc you posted is only a recovery disc which can be created for free from within Windows 10. It is not the full version of Windows 10.

    I also prefer a disk to a usb stick. I just don't like booting from USB and have never found it to be any faster.

    I take it back about the disc you posted. It appears to be a full installation disc and since it does not contain a product key, I'm pretty sure it's legal. Anyone can download the .iso and burn it to a disc. It looks like that's what the seller did and then color printed the front. I could do it myself with a Lightscribe label for about $5 to cover the cost of the disc and shipping.

    Hey Folks: I recall when the TP builds first appeared, a theme quite close to Windows 8.1 was used (with borderless windows and such). Is that theme still available for use with build 10240? I think that looked the best.
