Your thread has been moved here as it is a more appropriate forum
If I do an update to windows 10 then a clean install
Not sure what exactly you mean by the above so the following may not be what you are asking.
If you upgrade Windows 7, 8/8.1 to Windows 10 you have a 30 day period where you can roll back to the previous version of Windows should you decide that you do not like Windows 10.
Once Windows 10 has been installed you can create your own back disk or USB device that could be used for any fresh installation.
If you qualify for the free upgrade to Windows 10 you can download an ISO for free from Microsoft.
If you have a recovery partition on your hard drive that will retain the original OS unless you format/overwrite it, some information on this here
Hope one of the above answers your question.

Thanks for clarifying
Windows 10 will fail to install if there is anything missing that it needs to complete the upgrade.
I had to create an installation disk to fill in the gaps if I wanted to use either feature. I'm hoping that the upgrade to Windows 10 will 're-write' these files.
Are you saying that the Windows 8.1 media that you created failed to repair the damage, if yes, we may be able to help with this first.
