    Confused about License requirement for clean install...


    I have a PC I want to install Windows 10 on, clean. I have a Win 7 Pro license key.

    In instructions I read about installs it says to use a Windows 10 license key.

    As you probably guess, can I install Windows 10 from a USB drive and use a Windows 7 Pro license key?

    Yes as long as your Windows 7 Pro license is being used on ONE pc only. Can not use that license for more than one computer.
