    Can I go back and just do a clean install


    I originally followed the path to upgrade my 8.1 Pro to Windows 10. Everything went fine and I created the USB during the process. Activation was OK.
    Then after a few days and some unusual problems I reloaded my last Image of 8.1 Pro.
    Question is Can I go back and just do a clean install since I have already did the upgrade process?
    Or do a upgrade again?

    Hello Shipinomore,

    Yes you can clean install Windows 10 Pro since you upgraded to the free Windows 10 Pro on your activated Windows 8.1 Pro PC to register that PC for the Windows 10 Pro activation. :)
