  1. Reactivating free version of Windows 10 after installing new Hardware.


    I'm having issues trying to reactivate my Windows 10 after upgrading hardware. This is the second time I've upgraded the hardware, the first time I had no issues reactivating, this time it just isn't working. The troubleshooter keeps failing and I can't seem to fix it. I got the free upgrade from Windows 7 a few years ago.

    :)

    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?
