Windows 10 is finally available and is being rolling out to PCs across the world. You can now upgrade for free if you have Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 on your existing PC with automatic updates on. Just click on the shiny new Windows 10 icon on the notification area of the taskbar, follow the steps and Microsoft will alert you once it's ready to be installed. If you can't see the new icon on your system tray area then you need to install all the available updates for your copy of Windows 7 or 8.
If you need an ISO of Windows 10, then click here. You will find Media Creation Tool on this link which has an option to convert the installation files to ISO file format for both Windows 10 Home and Pro.

Guys, how to do a clean install with Windows 10 ISO file?

Do I have to upgrade my Windows 8.1 PC first? And where to find my Windows 10 serial key after upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10?

I have exactly same question. I have installed a new SSD in my system. I want to upgrade and do clean install. I want to do clean install on SSD rather than my slower harddrive.

@tipu, darren


You have to upgrade your Windows 7 or 8 to Window 10 once before performing a clean installation. After that use DVD or USB to perform a clean install and simply skip the product key window by selecting the Skip button. Windows 10 on your PC will be activated online automatically.


Edit: Don't change the editions. For example If you upgraded to Windows 10 Home, then you must install Windows 10 Home again while performing the clean installation.

I just wanted to report that I upgraded to windows 10 and then I did a clean installation to my SSD. I did not need to put key to activate I just logged into my live account.
