    Reinstalling and Activating Win10 after Wipe


    Hello,


    I'd like to kindly ask HOW (if possible with steps) to Reinstall AND Re-activate Windows10 after I have wiped completely (not just format) my PC.

    My question is not so much the installing process as to how to get an activated version back again running WHEN my current version is a free upgraded win10 from win7.

    IS Windows10 still being distributed for free? And IF NOT how can I get back this free activated licensed back after the wipe?


    I appreciate any help given and time spent for a thorough reply.

    Thank you in advance!

    :)

    Activation options for Win10 with instant clones

    We have a secure (no internet access) lab environment setup to test and validate a VMWare VDI deployment of Win10 clients.

    Our issue is activation of the Win10 clients as they require re-activation every time we logoff and back on because we are using instant clones.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to resolve this? Here are the options we are considering and issues as we understand them:

    • Setup a KMS server
      • Requires a Volume license, which is doable
      • Documentation says we must have a minimum of 25 hosts, we don' have that in our lab
    • Use our MSDN account
      • No support for Win10 KMS license
      • No support for MKS activation
    • Manually activate each time
      • Gonna spend a lot of time on the phone Reinstalling and Activating Win10 after Wipe :(
      • Win10 has no grace period so machines are crippled w/o activation
    Anyone have a thought or suggestions? I'm hoping I missed something.

    Thanks

  3. Cant activate windows 10 after wipe, key is from windows 8.1 that i upgraded from

    Hi Ryan,

    To assist you better, we would like to confirm if Windows 10 is activated before you wiped your computer.

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you run the Activation troubleshooter. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Select Update & security.
    • On the left pane, choose Activation.
    • Click Troubleshoot.
    Should you need further assistance, feel free to get back to us.

    Win10 wiped my address book!

    Title says it all. Upgraded to Win10 on 3 computers; wiped ALL addresses on 2, and 70% on the other. Any suggestions for recovering the addresses?
