    Keys are not required for the upgrade process. Windows 10 has a built-in generic key which it uses to install - it acquires the underlying Win7/Win8 activation during the upgrade process and assigns your device ID as a valid Windows 10 activated device. Subsequent installs will thus activate using your device ID. You will not require a key - should you be prompted, select "skip". Activation is automatic thereafter.

    Understand. I just completed a clean install and it kept asking for product key....more than once. I finally found it using v1.4.7d.rar

    You have to upgrade that device at least once before you can clean install.
