    Re-installing Windows 10


    I am thinking of doing a clean install of Windows 10. My computer had Windows 7 installed on it when I got it and I upgraded it to Windows 10 using a link from Microsoft they were offering free upgrades to Windows 10 for a limited time so I don't actually have the Windows 10 software in my possession. I do, however, have an emergency recovery flash drive that I created at the instructions of Microsoft. Can I use that or do I have to purchase Windows 10 to do a clean install.

    :)

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
