    If, after a clean install, you don’t need a key to reinstall to a new or wiped disk, how does the installer know that it is ok to install? Just curious.

    Andy, according to Microsoft, if you have already upgraded from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 using the free upgrade offer (and activate your copy of Windows 10), you won’t need a key to activate your copy of Windows 10 after the clean install on the same PC. When you are asked to enter a key during the install, click Skip button. Windows 10 will be automatically activated when you connect your PC to the internet.

    How do we get a product key for Windows 10 if we wipe a drive and do fresh install on a PC, when we have a full product key for Windows 8? Do we need to do a Win 8 install and then go for the upgrade or can we use the Win10 ISO with the Win 8 key?
