    Clean installing Windows 10 on a new laptop


    Bought a new Asus laptop off Amazon, and it's coming pre-installed with Windows 10.

    Should activation go smoothly if I wipe it and clean install using the Media Creation Tool? I hate manufacturer bloatware.

    That was pretty much my plan. My only concern is to be 100% sure that Windows will get activated without problems after the re-installation.
