Don't need to burn anything mate, just run it and hit upgrade and wait.

Can create a bootable USB after the upgrade if you like, if you want to do a fresh install.

Just make sure you upgrade first to carry your activation key over. :)

Cool do I still need to reserve it via my ICON on task bar?
Or is the ICON for auto upgrade?

I read in PCworld article as long as I have my win7 original key when I do a fresh install i'll be fine?
As my key is already logged with them

Nah forget the icon now you have the MCT.

As for your key, read the FAQ! :D

Ahh so basically I have to sometime in the next 12months do an install of Win10 to register all my hardware to be allowed to use my original w7 key for a fresh install? Am I guessing right?

Not 100% correct. Once you register your new hardware with windows 10, you no longer need a Key to do a fresh install. You skip the key screen and once windows goes online it will lookup your hardware id and see its already verified for windows 10 and will activate.
You just have to ensure you install the same version. So if you where on home make sure you fresh install home :)
