Hey guys just had a question. Iv been running windows 10 pro for some time now and i do say i love it so far. I did the free upgrade from my paid version of Windows 7 Ultimate so here's my question. Im looking to do a format reload [ as i do about every 6-8 months ] just to keep a clean computer and it running strong but since i do not have a CD for my windows 10 pro and it was the free upgrade how can i reload 10 pro again if i do my format reload as i only have the Win 7 Ultimate CD.

Thanks again, Brian

Hello Brian and welcome to the forum.
You're going to need the proper ISO from which you will then need to create the installation media and it sounds like you'll need to then burn it to a USB ThumbDrive and boot your computer from that.
Choose Windows 10, the first item in the first drop down (not single language at the bottom)
Next choose your language and your bit version (32 or 64 bit to match your system architecture or in the case of an upgrade, to match your currently installed version of Windows).
That will provide an ISO that will upgrade, repair (or clean install) either or both Windows 10 Pro and Home.
Once you have downloaded the ISO you can use ImgBurn to burn it to a DVD
Rufus to burn it to a USB ThumbDrive
