Today almost all Windows 7 and Windows 8 users already upgraded to free Windows 10.  You can upgrade your Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10 until July 2016. What happens if your Windows 10 crashes after that time? You do not have Windows 10 disk and you can not install Windows 10 from any source without purchasing Windows 10 license key.

However, here is the way you can make Windows 10 disk for yourself. For this you have to create a recovery drive, which allows you to boot from the USB drive and access the advanced startup options, where you can use those tools to help boot and troubleshoot the issue. Even better, you can install Windows 10 from fresh, your license key for your computer will be integrated with
this disk, so that you do not have to put any license key. But remember, this recovery drive is good only for your computer. If you use it in other laptop or PC you will need to put a license key.

Creating Windows 10 Recovery Drive

For best result, grab a flash drive that is 16 GB and plug into your computer. Then type: create a recovery drive into the search field and hit Enter.

That will launch the wizard to create a recovery drive. Make sure Back up system files to the recovery drive is checked and click Next.
Now select the flash drive you want to use for your recovery and click Next.
On the next screen click Create to start the process of creating your recovery drive. It should just take a few minutes or complete. Keep in mind that the all of the data on the flash drive will be deleted.

That’s it! Now, put the drive in a safe place so you can use it in the future if needed.

If you’re unable to boot into Windows 10 for any reason, you can boot from the recovery drive and will get a menu of advanced options to help troubleshoot the problem and get your system up and running.
