Upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10 and now want to clean install on SSD. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Last week I updated my laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 (using the free update). However, I would like to purchase an SSD and clean install Windows 10 on it. Is this possible? What will happen with the Windows 10 license?

  • It's possible. The Windows 10 key is store in the windows store with the hardware ID of the computer you are using.

    Install from scratch and when Windows 10 ask for a key just say next don't enter anything. Once you get access to the internet Windows 10 should activate itself.
