im using windows 7 (currently, i do not intent to upgrade).
with the microsoft 10 media tool i can either create iso or upgrade. can i make an iso for a VM right now and some time in the future, use the upgrade option ? or do i have to choose ?
The Media Creation Tool does not Create ISO images, the ISO image is available for download for free on the same Microsoft page that the Media Creation tool is. You can use the MCT to burn the ISO image of Windows 10. As stated, once it's burned you can use it to upgrade, install or repair. Be aware, about every 6 months or so, there will be a new version of the ISO image, You would need to download that to keep current.
If you don't want or need it why are you downloading it?
You can use the Windows Installer Flash drive/DVD as many times as you want there is no limit. However, There needs to be a separate Windows Product key to Activate Windows on each computer it is installed on. Either embedded in the computers Bios or by typing it in. You can only use one license per computer.
