    having issues installing Windows 10 on one PC


    Brink, will Windows 10 automatically find a Product Key, or do I have to find one on my own if I install Windows 10 from an ISO file?

    Hello Jesse,

    You'll want to use the free upgrade offer to be able to have an activated Windows 10.


    Can I reinstall Windows 10 on my computer after upgrading?

    Once you’ve upgraded to Windows 10 using the free upgrade offer (this step) or step 3 above, you will be able to reinstall, including a clean install, on the same device. You won’t need a product key for re-activations on the same hardware. If you make a meaningful change to your hardware, you may need to contact customer support to help with activation. You’ll also be able to create your own installation media like a USB drive or DVD, and use that to upgrade your device or reinstall after you’ve upgraded.

    It keeps failing to upgrade. Also, I can't find the files for Windows.-BT.

    If you haven't already, you could use the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft using step 3 in the tutorial below to upgrade to Windows 10 and have it activated afterwards.

    Okay. Thanks. I will try that. I did that earlier and it wouldn't activate.

    It would have be done on an activated 7 or 8.1. However, Microsoft's activation servers have been overloaded today, and not always able to activate at the time. If it doesn't activate, then I'd say give it a day or two to see if it will.
