    Hey there, light001.

    If I've understood you correctly, here's what you need in order to create a bootable installation media for Windows 10 (as well as for Win 7 and 8.1): https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15088/windows-create-installation-media.
    Note that you probably won't save yourself a lot of time by creating a new installation media, as your new Windows installation will still have quite a few updates to install after its initial installation.

    However you could just as easily use a DVD or a USB flash drive for that.

    Here's something else, which might prove useful: http://www.howtogeek.com/239312/how-to-restore-system-image-backups-on-windows-7-8-and-10/

    Hope that helps.
