    You need a flash drive or a DVD since you need to boot it, not launch from inside Windows.
    Can you read my above message and see if that does anything.

    You are also saying once windows 10 is installed and upgraded from the previous windows i then shall be able to do a clean install?
    Once windows 10 is installed and upgraded from the previous version and activated successfully. You will need to make sure that your Windows 10 is activated, before doing a clean install.

    If so how would i go about doing that, would i need to make a flash drive with the windows on it or is there an option with in windows to do so.
    I did not perform clean install of Windows 10 after the upgrade. I was facing some lags and FPS drops while playing games. So, instead of clean install, i did reset my pc via "Recovery" option of Windows 10. I selected 2nd option "clean all my where the operating system is installed" and now all stuff is working super duper :)

    As I tried to say, you need to create a flash drive or DVD. There is nothing built into Windows 10 that will do this for you.

    Modern setup host stopped working is the error message i got this time.
    From what I've read, that is commonly an indication of not enough free space for the upgrade. How much free space do you have on the operating system partition?

    Yes by checking properties of My Computer.

    Or you can run this command slmgr /xpr in command prompt.

    It does say windows is activated in the system files at the bottom.

    I did take a picture of the product id and it does differ from when i was on windows 8.

    Even the command prompt way is also telling me it is activated.
