  1. Reinstall Windows from USB Key - Windows 10 Product Key


    I am currently trying to clean up a computer at work and I decided that it needs a total wipe. Since it is a work computer, I do not want to attach a Microsoft account to it for the Windows 10 product key (it is incredibly frustrating that you need to do this now), but may need to reinstall windows. If I reinstalled it from a USB key (in the event I need to Boot-and-Nuke it), how can I properly obtain the Windows 10 product key without attaching it to an existing Microsoft account or making a dummy account.

    :)

    windows 10 key

    Google and download the "Windows 10 media creation tool"

    Create a USB flash drive ISO and that's all you need...it will work without needing a key..
    Just skip past entering a key during full install and delete all partitions, format, create new drive and install...

    As long as you have upgraded from Windows 8 first...you need to do that prior to using your Windows 8 key for 10.

    windows 10 key

    Thanks but I don't want to do any decrypting. I want to download a Win 10 ISO from Microsoft and install it using my Win 8 key. No other steps required. Is that possible?
