VLC site says W10 is fine.

A big book writer has lots of good words on W10. The bottom line is just 
like the tablets, everything has moved to the internet and Windows must also 
or die. That was said years ago.

I have downloaded W10 ISO(s) the last two days and while I have not found 
words yet I expect that a product key will be part of the upgrade or the W7 
one will be used. MS's computers will know which computers go with each 
product key and which W7 computers were upgraded.

A W10 page said use Windows DVD writer software to burn the ISO.

Those who get the update via the Icon are instructed to burn recovery disks 
soon, just like I did after starting my W7 laptop computer the first time.

But I have not seen words about the ISO upgrade route just the words from a 
real expert.
