    Hi,

    I have a Dell 5530 with a digital license and would like to do a fresh install and by fresh install I mean to delete all partitions i.e. Health (EFI Partition) (Recovery Partition) and the OS of course when booting from the USB (already have the Windows on a bootable USB) and now my question is do I need a key to activate Windows after installing and deleting all the partitions or Windows can detect that the PC had a digital license and activate itself without me entering a key (which I don't have) or buying a new one?

    The reason I am doing a fresh install from a USB is that I think the Recovery version is corrupt. I already reinstalled from the Recovery, but still have some weird issues in Windows.

    Thanks in advanced for your inputs!

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    Click to expand... Yeah I went to that site, why do I need to buy a key?
    I won't buy a key, stupid.

    I'll revert back to windows 7 then.

    When I still was on windows 7, about a year ago I added 4GB extra ram which is a total of 8GB now,
    is that causing the problem?

    From Why can't I activate Windows?

    If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free and ended up in a non-activated state, try following these steps:

    • Go to Start
      Window 10 activation [​IMG]
      , then select Settings > Update & security > Activation.
    • Select Go to Store, and check to see if a valid license is available for your device. If a license isn't available, you'll need to buy Windows from the Store.

      Note
      • This only applies if you haven't made changes to the hardware for your device.

    or you could hack it with a crack but please note this is always risky and you don't know what's in the hack
