How to Clean Install Windows 10 Using the Windows 7 Product Key

Microsoft has released Windows 10 build 10586 in November 2017 to allow you to install Windows 10 using Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 product keys. So I tried to install Windows 10 using this method.

Clean install Windows 10 using the Windows 7 product Key

This time, the PC to install Windows 10 is an Acer AS3810T Laptop. This notebook PC was sold with the initial release of Windows 7, the memory was added from 2GB to 4GB, and the 250GB HDD was retrofit to 120GB SSD.

The version we are going to install is a 64-bit of Windows 10 build 10586 that was published in November 2017. Download the ISO file from the Microsoft Windows 10 disk image (ISO file) download site and create a DVD.

The product key that you will need to install will be used in the Windows 7 license sticker on your computer. If you lost your Windows 7 product key 64 bit, you can go to Key1024.com to buy one with little money less than $30 USD…

AS3810T does not have a DVD drive, so using a DVD drive with a USB connection, the network was connected by a wired LAN.

Boot from DVD and start installing Windows 10!

Enter the product key for the previous Windows 7, as it will be the input screen for the product key.

If the product key is valid, it will be the consent screen for the license terms.

Because I do a clean installation this time, I delete a hard disk (this time is SSD) and make a new setting.

Once the installation starts, just wait.

A clean installation of Windows 10 will take you to the final configuration screen in about 30 minutes, either because Windows 10 itself is a compact operating system. The traditional Windows 7 took about an hour, so it is a significant time-saving.

Installing the update is the end of the installation process. If you have a driver that Windows 10 does not have, you can get it in Windows Update and set it up.

Windows 10 has been installed and started. It has not taken one hour to this point.

If you check the system information, you will be able to use it as genuine Windows because it has been activated.

Hardware verification in Device Manager. The genuine Windows 10 OS was installed on your AS3810T Laptop, and all devices were successfully recognized and the appropriate drivers were installed.

Depending on the configuration of your computer, you may have a device that cannot be found during installation, but in this case you will need to find and install the driver separately.

Notes on how to do this

The way to install Windows 10 with the Windows 7 product key is not guaranteed by a PC manufacturer, so you will be at your own risk even if you have trouble, so please understand that.

Also, some computers may not be able to find the driver for the device and may not be available.

Because it is not recovery, all the software that was in the time of the PC purchase is not installed, and it becomes the appearance only of Windows 10 really.

Clean installed PC is fast!

Although there are some risks, the clean PC installed in this way is very comfortable, crispy and fast because of the simple configuration of Windows 10 only.

After installing Windows 10, the software you need, only the software that you use carefully selected to install, it becomes a very comfortable PC.
