    Starting in Windows 10 Insider Preview build 10565:

    Device activation improvements: Microsoft has received a lot of feedback from Insiders on making it easier to activate Windows 10 on devices that take advantage of the free upgrade offer to genuine Windows by using existing Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 product keys. If you install this build of the Windows 10 Insider Preview on a PC and it doesn’t automatically activate, you can enter the product key from Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 used to activate the prior Windows version on the same device to activate Windows 10 by going to Settings > Update & security > Activation and selecting Change Product Key. If you do a clean install of Windows 10 by booting off the media, you can also enter the product key from prior Windows versions on qualifying devices during setup.
    Tip   Tip
    The table at the Microsoft site below lists the most common upgrade and installation errors, and a few things you can try to fix the problems.

    Get help with Windows 10 upgrade and installation errors - Windows Help

    warning   Warning
    Before you get started installing Windows 10, be sure that you temporarily disable Secure Boot and Fast Boot in your UEFI firmware settings until finished. Some motherboards do not support booting from a USB flash drive with these enabled.

    Once installation has finished, you can enable Secure Boot and Fast Boot again if you like.


    Video by: Steve (essenbe)






    Here's How:

    1. If you have not already, you will need to create a bootable Windows 10 installation USB.

    2. Temporarily disconnect all non OS hard drives until Windows installation has finished. This is to avoid Windows Setup from installing files on other hard drives by mistake.

    3. Boot from the USB flash drive on your computer.

    4. If you have installation media that is for both 32-bit and 64-bit from the Media Creation Tool, then select Windows 10 Setup (64-bit) or Windows 10 Setup (32-bit) for what you want to install with, and press Enter. (see screenshot below)

    7. Enter your Windows 10 product key to activate Windows 10 with, and click/tap on Next. (see screenshot below)
    Note   Note
    If needed, you can click/tap on I don't have a product key to manually activate Windows 10 later.

    You will not be asked to enter a product key in Windows 10 Enterprise. You will need to activate later after installation has finished.


    If you have the free Windows 10 offer, then you can enter the Windows 7 or Windows 8 product key that you upgraded from to Windows 10.

    If this PC has a digital entitlement available for this Windows 10 on Microsoft's activation servers, then you will not be prompted to enter a product key.

    If this OEM PC has a valid product key embedded in its UEFI firmware chip, then you will not be prompted to enter a product key.

    11. Do step 12 (legacy BIOS) or step 13 (UEFI) below depending on if you are installing with or without UEFI.


     12. If Installing Windows 10 without UEFI

    A) Select the hard drive or partition that you want to install Windows 10 on, and click/tap on the Drive Options (advanced) link.

    Note   Note
    If the hard drive or partition that you have selected is shown as unallocated, then you can just click/tap on the Next button and go directly to step 12B below instead since it is already empty.


    B) Select a hard drive or partiton that you want to do a clean install of Windows 10 on, do one of the options for how you want to install Windows to that drive or partition in the yellow TIP box below, then click/tap on the Next button when finished. (see screenshot below)

    NOTE: If your hard drive is not displayed and it's either a SATA drive or in a RAID setup, then you need to connect a USB key or DVD disc with the RAID or SATA drivers on it, click on Load Driver, select the folder on the USB key or DVD that contains the RAID or SATA drivers to install them. Afterwards, your RAID drives will be available to select from to install Windows on.

    Tip   Tip
    Drive options (advanced)

    If you only have one partition for a Drive # (hard drive) listed that you wanted to install Windows on, then select the disk # and click on the Delete option if not grayed out to make it unallocated space.

    If you have more than one partition for a Drive # (hard drive) listed and want to install Windows on only one of the partitions and keep the other partitions with that disk #, then only select the partition that you want to install Windows on the Format option.

    If you have more than one partition for a Drive # (hard drive) listed and want to get rid of all of them to make that disk # one single partition drive again, then select a partition with that disk # and click on the Delete option for each partition with the same Drive # until there is only one "unallocated space" with that Drive # left as in the screenshot below.

    To shrink an existing partition to create another partition to install Windows on instead, select the partition that you want to shrink and click on the Extend option. Type in how much in MB (1 GB = 1024 MB) that you want to shrink it by. Now select the new extended partition.

    Note   Note
    The 450 MB (UEFI-GPT) or 500 MB (Legacy BIOS-MBR) System Reserved partition is used for the Boot Manager code, BCD (Boot Configuration Database), System Recovery Options (Windows RE), and start up files for BitLocker (if turned on).

    If you want to have (recommended) the 450 MB (UEFI-GPT) or 500 MB (Legacy BIOS-MBR) System Reserved partition in addition to the Windows C: partition on a HDD or SSD after installation, then you would need to make sure that all partitions on the drive have been deleted until it is only unallocated space. Next, select the unallocated drive to install Windows on. If there are no partitions on the disk, you will get the System Reserved partition.

    If you do not want to have the 450 MB (UEFI-GPT) or 500 MB (Legacy BIOS-MBR) System Reserved partition and only the Windows C: partition on a HDD or SSD after installation, then select a formatted partition or drive to install Windows on. If there are any partitions on the disk, you won't get the System Reserved partition.


    C) Go to step 14 below.

     13. If Installing Windows 10 with UEFI

    Note   Note
    Your motherboard must support UEFI 2.0 or later to be able to install 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10 with UEFI.


    A) Delete all partitions/volumes on the Drive # (ex: Drive 0) that you want to install Windows 10 with UEFI on until that Drive # shows as unallocated space. (see screenshot below)

    B) When you are finished, click/tap on Next, and go to step 14 below. (see screenshot above)
    Note   Note
    If you receive a "Windows can't be installed on drive 0" warning, you will still be able to as long as you can click/tap on the Next button.


    Windows Setup will automatically create the 4 partitions below on the drive, and install Windows 10 on the primary partition.
    • Partition 1 - Recovery
    • Partition 2 - System - The EFI System partition that contains the NTLDR, HAL, Boot.txt, and other files that are needed to boot the system, such as drivers.
    • Partition 3 - MSR - The Microsoft Reserved (MSR) partition that reserves space on each disk drive for subsequent use by operating system software.
    • Partition 4 - Primary - Where Windows is to be installed to.

    I own it = Local home PC


    For Windows 10 Enterprise:

    Join Azure AD = Choose this option if your organization uses Office 365 or other business services from Microsoft. Your organization might collect info about you, install or remove apps, change settings or disable features, delete content, or reset your device. Talk to your support staff to learn more. This will let you setup Windows with a work or school account now.

    Join a domain = This will let you setup Windows with a local account now. When setup is finished, you can join a domain, or switch to a Microsoft account. Go to step 23B below after selecting this option.

    • You use your email address and password to sign in to Windows.
    • When you sign in with a Microsoft account, your PC is connected to the cloud.
    • Your friends’ contact info and statuses are automatically up to date from your Hotmail, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other accounts.
    • You can get to and share your photos, documents, and other files from OneDrive, Facebook, Flickr, and other accounts without signing in to each one.
    • Your personal settings are synced to any PC running Windows 8 and Windows 10 that you sign in to, including your themes, language preferences, browser favorites, and apps.
    • You can get apps in the Windows Store and use them on any PC running Windows 8 and Windows 10 that you sign in to.
    • Easily reacquire your modern Store apps on multiple Windows 8 and Windows 10 PCs. The app’s settings and last-used state persist across all your Windows 8 and Windows 10 PCs.
    • You can associate the most commonly used Windows settings to your user account. In this way, the saved settings are available when you sign in to your account on any Windows 8 and Windows 10 PC. So your PC will be set up just the way you are used to.
    • You can also save time with sign-in credentials, because now the same credentials are available for the different apps and websites you use and you can easily get back into them without having to enter credentials every time.
    • You can automatically sign in to apps and services that use Windows Live ID for authentication.


    A) Type in your email address and password for your Microsoft account, and click/tap on the Sign in button. (see screenshot below)

    Hello Kevin,

    I'm afraid not. It still wouldn't be bootable just copying it. Using Rufus from step 2 would be a good easy option to create the USB with the ISO if you like.
