Performing a Windows 10 Clean Installation using Windows 10 Upgrade Media

Normally when you accomplish a fresh installation of an operating system you are required to enter the product key that was provided with the installation media. If you downloaded the free upgrade to Windows 10 media you did not receive a product key. Here is the way to accomplish a clean installation using the upgrade media.

First of all you have to take advantage of the free upgrade offer from Microsoft by successfully upgrading the computer and successfully activated Windows 10 after the upgrade. Once you have accomplished this task this computer is now registered as an activated Windows 10 upgraded computer.

Secondly, boot off the upgrade installation media and accomplish a clean installation following the installation Wizard. When prompted for the product key select Skip. Provided you are on the PC that was previously successfully activated. And you are installing the same editions of Windows 10 the operating system will automatically activate online.

If you need to obtain the installation media check out my how to download it at:
