    Win 10 clean install question

    Hello everyone,

    my brother in law has bought a new computer yesterday still with win 8.1 on it, which he'll be upgrading to windows 10. I'm guessing non pro edition. So far I've determined that if you want to do a clean install after the upgrade you don't use an updated productkey, rather microsoft registers somehow your hardware id and auto activates.

    Now here's my worry, the computer isn't coming with an ssd, and I'm building that in tommorow, and I want to do the clean install on the ssd understandably.
    My question is, will this alter the hardware ID in such a way that Win 10 won't activate anymore. I know there's a 30 day grace period to fix things, but I'd rather get everything right straight away.
    I'm also wondering if I can just format the former system drive after win 10 has been activated on the SSD or if this will screw up some activation logging file or whatever other important stuff they've somehow left on the older installation.

    If it doesnt activate it would mean I'd have to get into contact with microsofts help desk, which I reckon will be extremely hard to reach anyways, and my experience with them hasn't been great sofar.


    Thanks in advance for any light shed on the matter. I'm sure more people are debating a form of this conundrum.

    Upgrage from Win 10 Home to Win 10 Pro

    I just bought a new Dell Laptop with Win 10 Home, I still had a unopened Win 8 Pro Key what I tried to upgrade the New Dell Laptop to Win 10 Pro. After entering the Key I am getting a error code 0xc004fo50. The product Key on the Dell is 00325-95857-46796-AAOEM.
    The Microsoft Support site said I should be able to use this. Any suggestion about this issue, or is Microsoft all about to make us to spend more money and saying you spend your money on us for a worthless Key?
