Windows 10 install: any gotchas?

Due to Windows 7 support ending I'm finally going to reluctantly move to Windows 10. I'm going to go to a fresh install rather than an upgrade install (which I've heard is problematic). First I'm going to back up all my drives using Clonezilla imaging software off of the Ultimate Boot CD.


1. Does Windows 10 require the BIOS be put into UEFI mode? I much prefer legacy mode.

2. Does Windows 10 come as a burnable ISO image?

3. is GPT significantly better than NTFS?

If anyone had any guides or gotchas on installing Windows 10 I'd like to read/see them. In particular, I'm interested in how to xfer my Origin and Uplay games and GTA IV: Episodes from Liberty City over to the the Windows 10 install. TIA.
