    I bought a new laptop durng Walmart's online Black Friday sale. And when I opened up the laptop box there was no windows key to be found on the laptop, box, or paperwork. I refuse to create a microsoft account since I have no use or interest of the store or any of those microsoft account functions. The basic Windows operating system is all I need and I know it's possible to activate it without a Microsoft account but is there a way to do it at the start screen when I set up the laptop or will I be forced to make an account?

    Important W10 activation key questions left unanswered by Microsoft

    Not only that, you can check your M$ account and see what devices are listed there, so you know if you can do a clean install or not. Do the upgrade, get it activated, verify that it is listed in your account, then feel free to do a fresh install without activation issues ever.

  3. Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.

    Upgrade. Upgrade. It's not a full OS, it's a free upgrade to an existing OS.

    If it is already activated, you can download the "240" build and update from there. That is the key part...it has to be activated and listed in your Microsoft Account in order to be upgraded from preview to release. No new activations have been possible for a few now.
