Windows 10 Media

Performing the free upgrade will get you a key, you may need to use some utility (google can help there) to find out what it is. Based on my experience, machines upgraded from oem pre-installed win 7/8 get one of a handful of generic keys, where as retail copies of 7/8 that get upgraded get unique keys.

You can create Windows 10 installation media for Home and Pro (but not Enterprise) from this page

and use the key you have from the upgrade to install it.
