    windows 8.1 home basic

    want to reinstall win10


    before 29jyly15, my pc with win8.1 home basic, was upgraded to win10. recently it became non usable due os problems. so i reinstalled win8.1 again.
    i wish to know what should i do to reinstall win10? --tried using media creation tool with both options-1)upgrade this pc 2)create media to install on other pc.
    but after nearing completion of the download it says verifying download and then nothing happens and the screen disappears.
    is there a way-where i can down load win10 iso and use that to install again with my win8.1 key?--pravin

    A little searching offers this:
    Access Denied
    That's
    h t t p s:/w w w.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO/
    (don't know why it's shown as Access Denied- the page is valid for me)

    You can find an extensive list here:
    Microsoft Windows 10 TH2 ISO Download • Windows ISO
    However you will have to choose very carefully which one you need.

    Once you have installed Win 10 on a PC, any next install should activate automatically. No key needed.

    The tutorial section here includes a tutorial on clean installing Win 10.

    It's a good idea to keep a bootable Win 10 medium to hand to make use of its recovery features.

    Good, now I hope you are in the habit of routinely using disk imaging (e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) ) which we strongly recommend as that has so many advantages in securing your data and providing recovery options for your PC.

    Fortunately, I lost no data after clean installation without a recovery image because I had a separate data partition.
