    Incorrect. I have a SAMSUNG laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. Windows 10 has been the biggest nightmare so far. Upgraded to Windows 10 but at first it downloaded Windows 10 Home Premium via Windows Update and failed to install three times. Contacted Microsoft they said to wait for notification on the bottom right corner when it ready.

    Today upgraded to Windows 10. It failed to activate. Even when you click on activate it doesn't as it states try again later. Everything was slow and unresponsive. So factory reset to Windows 7 using recovery partition. Upgraded to Windows 10 this time round said activated.

    OK, done a clean installation using Windows 10 Media Creation Tool. After installation and account setup. It stated activation required. Unless I am doing the clean installation wrong?
    What's incorrect about it? It's been done by many people, just because it didn't work for you makes it incorrect? Don't make false statements please, what I posted is valid information as proved by the OP, just because you're having issues doesn't make me a liar.
