    Hi ... Did you first upgrade from 7 to 10 ? Because you need to upgrade the system first before you can do anything when it comes to reinstalling . So did you ?

    If you upgraded from 7 to 10, and activated. On a clean install, just click skip when prompted to enter a product code. It should activate when done. It did for me. Upgrade refers to an upgrade install versus a clean install.

    So doing a reinstall of windows 10 will be the same assuming I did a format and reinstall like windows 7 when you boot from DVD?

    Pretty much. boot from your install media and follow the prompts. Chose custom install and you can delete, create, and format partitions.

    Depends on which ISO you downloaded. Did you download the Windows 10 Pro ISO? That's all that will be in the ISO is Windows 10 Pro.
