    Hello,

    When you upgrade with the free reserved copy from the GWX app on an activated Windows 7 or 8.1 PC, Windows 10 has a generic key included that will activate it.

    If you clean install Windows 10 without doing the above first, Windows 10 will not be activated.


    Can I reinstall Windows 10 on my computer after upgrading with free upgrade?

    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.

    I didn't do a clean install, I upgraded from Windows 7.

    A detail: After the update, I did a BIOS update. I also reactivated the Office 2010 after the installation of Windows 10, but I don't remember if it's before or after the BIOS update.
