    Correct, you would want to create installation media with UEFI support to install with unless you are upgrading with the Media Creation Tool or GWX app (free offer).

    Oh I see thank you , but yeah I'm upgrading with the GWX offer so in that case I don't need UEFI right ?

    Correct. It'll just use what you currently are.

    Hey I have legacy bios. Will Windows 10 still install clean and remain activated?

    Yep, if you upgraded first like below.

    Can I reinstall Windows 10 on my computer after upgrading with free upgrade?

    Once you’ve upgraded to Windows 10 using the free upgrade offer or Media Creation Tool on an activated Windows 7 or 8.1 PC, you will be able to reinstall, including a clean install, on the same device. You won’t need a product key for re-activations on the same hardware. If you make a meaningful change to your hardware, you may need to contact customer support to help with activation. You’ll also be able to create your own installation media like a USB drive or DVD, and use that to upgrade your device or reinstall after you’ve upgraded.
