    While rummaging around on the internet I came across a solution (I hope) to something which has been slightly bothering me. My PC upgraded itself to Windows 10 but I have no Windows 10 DVD and if it all blows up, as Windows does from time to time in my experience, how was I going to re-install it? I know you can use Macrium Reflect but having a Windows 10 installation disk would be reassuring as a back stop.

    It seems even Microsoft recognize this because you can download what you need here.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

    You download the tool, which is a small file, then run it and it prompts you for what you want. I went for the disk option. It does warn you against running this on a Windows 10 PC as it says it overwrites temporary files which will prevent you reverting back to your old OS. However, I think after a time you can't revert so I've run it on my W10 PC anyway.

    The ISO file then has to be burned to a PC and can be used to install Windows 10 on another PC or re-install if say you needed to fit a new HD.

    Not sure about licence keys, I only have the one for W7 I had before. Ho Hum, I will find out if that is a problem if and when I come to re-install it!

    You have been able to download that since 10 came out mate and the trial ones before it came out. As for your key i have just re installed 10 on both my laptops as i just did the update before. It excepted my Win 7 and 8.1 key to allow installation so i would just scribble that down safe keeping if you dont know it.

    I heard that if that disc is played backwards you can hear Devil type music and satanic wailing, along with a smell of Incense
    and most of your friends will die within a week
    Even Worse
    If you play it forwards it will instal Window 10:eek:
