    Having some issues with Windows 10 64X Home Premium

    I was not sure what is the best way to have a clean install or reset my PC? If I go ahead to do a clean install and use my Windows 7 COA keys.Is that correct? Or just do the reset on my PC. I know only 2 days left before free download of Windows 10 expire. I am planning to do with my desktop this evening.

    Thank you,

    Assuming you are currently running Windows 10 and it is activated, you can do a clean install of Windows 10 directly. You won't need to enter a key, as it will already be activated.

    If you haven't upgraded to Windows 10, then yes, you'll need to clean install Windows 7, activate it, and then upgrade to 10 in the next two days.

    In addition, once you have done the upgrade on that computer, you can re-install Windows 10 for free on that same computer for the life of the computer, even after July 29th.

    Thank you for your help with the information about my question. I will wait till I get my time to re-install Windows 10 after July 29th. Yes I have Windows 10 on my desktop all along since the early release of Windows 10. I do have other computers (laptops) with Windows 10 but my desktop need to get a clean reinstall.

    Thank you,
