    Install on a different partition

    Hi, I have made the Windows 10 UPGRADE, and now I want to make a clean install but on a different partition, will it still recognize it as the same computer or will it ask for a new Product-Key?

    Probably both. It will recognize it as the same computer and, unless there is a Windows 10 or Windows 8 product key stored in bios, it will as for a product key. You click "I don't have a product key", "skip" or "do this later" if it asks for a product key.
