    The Dreamspark versions always allow a clean install. The method you described is only needed because the free 7/8->10 upgrade does not give you a license key that can be activated separately.
    Thank you TheOne320Thank for clarifying this. So with Windows 10 DreamSpark key i can do the clean install and no need to go through upgrade process.

    One more question about DreamSpark key. Can i use this key to do multiple installation on 3 different computers? I have two laptops and a desktop so Can same key work on all 3 PCs and All of them can be activated?

    No, the key is only for one machine, but it is not bound to it, so later pc changes work. You can get more keys than one. Just "buy" the Windows 10 (Multiple Editions) in different languages. For example I "bought" it on English-US, English-UK and German. The key is not bound to a language, so you can use the three keys for one language.

    I tried as you said to buy other language windows 10 but it is not allowing me to buy it. I think my school only allows One Key per product. It is saying i already order 1 Windows 10 so i can not longer order it more.

    yeah, then you will have to go through the upgrade process on two machines and only use the dreamspark key on one pc.

    Ok, I found out, that the key is for the Pro version.
    Why?
    They provide a key for Windows multiple editions, I assume that you can use it in order to activate one of them, but in my case I want the Home version.

    The disk is just called "multiple editions" because microsoft just made one iso for Home and Pro. The key decides which version you get. The Pro versions has all features of the home edition. Why would you want less?

    What do you mean by "The key decides which version you get" ? Then the multiple editions is in fact the PRO edition?

    I would prefer the Home version because the PRO version has a lot of features and "extras" that I won't use, and it will consume resources.

    The disk is multiple versions, but the key is Pro. You can get rid of all your unneeded features using Click image for larger version.

    He means that multiple editions provides you Key for only PRO edition. So you can only use it to install Pro windows 10.

    The word Multiple edition means that it is one ISO file for Home and Pro versions. You can input any key you may have purchases in same ISO file and you get home or pro based on your key.

    DreamSpark only gives you key for Pro version and not for home.

    Be careful with that; apparently the EDU key you get from DreamSpark will expire when your college/university/institution sets your account status to graduate. Source: my boss at college.
    Nope, I finished my studies 2 yrs ago - all my keys are still active. It's just another MSDN branch - Technet keys are still active as well.
