    I just installed Win10 using the tool- nothing about keys, works fine for me.

    Can I reinstall Windows 10 on my computer after upgrading?

    Yes. Once you’ve upgraded to Windows 10 using the free upgrade offer, 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.

    Glad to know that all of you people have got windows 10 WITH NO PROBLEMS.
    I have got Windows 10 now, although I have a problem.
    I'm having problem with the sounds..?
    Google Chrome Doesn't have sound, Skype doesn't have sound, etc etc.
    Although Microsoft Edge does?
    Anybody know a fix for this?

    I had this problem too. It's very easy to solve.
    (I had no sound at all, infact)

    Open Device Manager. Open and select "Sound, Video & Game Controllers" , Right click the sound device and select Scan for Hardware Changes.

    I tried some of the suggestions in this thread, now I have two hidden folder , $windows BT and $Windows WS. They contain 140MB and 5.76GB respectively. I'm only allowed to download 250GB per month and I'm getting worried.

    I downloaded the ISO file for my laptop and I discovered my recovery partition was not large enough; totally my fault. I increased it to 300MB and right now it is at 24% upgrading windows. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    error code: 80240020

    If you receive this error code and in your upgrades state that the windows 10 "Failed", will Microsoft eventually fix this problem ?

    How did you figure this out? I'm new here and you just blew my mind. I'm kinda joking but kinda not. This just came out yesterday. How do you know how to do this already?
