    Going for a clean install now.
    Let me know if it activates on its own after the clean install

    Brink, I upgraded to 10. Can I delete the "$Windows.~WS" Folder?

    If you like, you could use step 24 below to safely delete it with Disk Cleanup.

    I did that and I recovered 22.7 GB space. But this folder contains 5.7 GB. Shall I delete it?

    Here's a question: I'm going the upgrade route on my three systems: two Windows 8.1 x64 and one Windows 7 x32. Once I've done that I want to do a clean install on all three systems using this ISO. I would love to get off 32-bit, so I'm curious if I will be able to install the 64-bit version of Windows 10 on the old Windows 7 system once it's been updated and activated?

    If you already cleaned everything using Disk Cleanup, then I would leave it for now to make sure it's not needed.

    Hello Thunderclap,

    Yes, you will be able to after the upgrade was installed and activated on the PC.

    Hello people, I am now writing using Edge but my screen resolution is tiny because the Win Update now brings me my GPU driver.

    - Yes, it updates automatically on its own after the Upgrade, as long as you have an internet connection. I did not have -because I always install all my drivers manually and in a specific order- but it activated immediately after the connection was established. To be sure though I used Syperfly's utility to save my product key, thank you Superfly!

    - For me, clean installation means to delete all the volumes + partitions of my SSD and make it an unallocated drive. Then I install everything the way I want.

    See you later with a few of my first impressions... Hint: driver update?! Are you kidding me? Better get all your drivers in advance, especially the crucial ones like INF, IME, AHCI...

    I was concerned because in the past you couldn't use the same key between 32-bit and 64-bit. If it will work then I'll definitely move to the newer architecture. Thanks!

    Yes, the key can be used on either the 32-bit or 64-bit edition.
