    They will be tied to the clean install.
    second line i never knew, makes me confident i will be o.k. with clean install.

    Did mine on day of launch, many had issues activating then, some causes said to be on MS and there server overload. Mine has been good so far, since then. Only did one clean install after upgrade, worked perfect.

    Did you create the flash drive for UEFI/GPT? If not, do it again that way.
