Re: Did a clean install of Win 10 without upgrading

Carlos
 

I'm not sure that it can really be considered invasive or sneaky. You do have to qualify for the upgrade after all. Verifying that you do in fact qualify can hardly be considered sneaky.

I think the author of that article made it clear that Microsoft was
very tight lipped and secretive about the authorization process which
is understandable. But, If the dual boot worked without entering a
product key, then Microsoft lifted it from the other partition during
the installation. What other possibility could there be? It's
invasive and sneaky, but if they just did a scan for the product key,
I guess that's not too bad, If that's all they scanned for. hmmm

This link may explain why that worked. It's just slightly different.

In the article you'll find this excerpt.:

For those who are anxious to do a clean install, here's the trick:

Don't do the online upgrade.

Instead, from your current, activated copy of Windows 7 or Windows
8.1, download the Windows 10 ISO file for the corresponding edition
(Home or Pro), or create a bootable USB flash drive. Without exiting
your current Windows version, double-click the ISO to mount it as a
virtual DVD (or open the USB flash drive with installation media)
and then double-click Setup.

Your goal is to get to the screen with this full range of options:


clean-install.jpg

Choose the option I've highlighted at the bottom: the one that says
you want to keep nothing. The Windows 10 Setup program installs a
clean copy of the edition that corresponds to the one you have
installed. As part of the process, it verifies the activation status
of your old Windows, creates the new license certificate, and blows
away your previous install. And you never had to enter a product key.

Kimsan, I think it’s better to do without passwords!  That’s my preference on these mailing lists anyway.  Better still, just create one, log into the lists group interface and change the password generated by the list server to one you like.  This way, you’ll always remember your password <smile>!

Yes, like I just said reading the article it say nothing about a dual boot. I sure would like more info on that for sure. It really sounds like it would work with a dual boot only if you had your product key. In fact it says it will blow your previous windows away and if you dual boot and the partition you have don't have w7 or w8 on it I don't see how this would work without the product key. Yes if you had w7 on one partition and W8 on the other I could see this happening.

Don't do the online upgrade.

Instead, from your current, activated copy of Windows 7 or Windows

Re: Did a clean install of Win 10 without upgrading

Matt
 

Well. Nowhere does it say anything about a dual boot. It does say like you say below it blows away your existing copy of windows. But I don't want it to do this. I want to keep w7 just like I have it. And install w10 on a different partition. So if there is nothing on the other partition to blow away and do the key from how will this activate without your w7 key. It really sounds like if you do a dual boot from the article below you would need the key. Because it ask you for the key. I could see this working on the same partition but not on a dual boot without the product key at some point either during the install or after the install. So I need more info on the dual boot thing so ever who did it if he or she can explain more what happen and the process would be helpful and give me more confidence before I took the plunge!
I would really hate to wipe my copy of w7 and have to them start fresh with it.


Thanks,
Matt.from.florida@gmail.com

Well yes, that is logical for a standard clean installation. I was just a
bit surprised that it worked with a dual boot clean installation.

This link may explain why that worked. It's just slightly different.

In the article you'll find this excerpt.:

For those who are anxious to do a clean install, here's the trick:

Don't do the online upgrade.

Instead, from your current, activated copy of Windows 7 or Windows
8.1, download the Windows 10 ISO file for the corresponding edition
(Home or Pro), or create a bootable USB flash drive. Without exiting
your current Windows version, double-click the ISO to mount it as a
virtual DVD (or open the USB flash drive with installation media) and
then double-click Setup.

Your goal is to get to the screen with this full range of options:


clean-install.jpg

Choose the option I've highlighted at the bottom: the one that says
you want to keep nothing. The Windows 10 Setup program installs a
clean copy of the edition that corresponds to the one you have
installed. As part of the process, it verifies the activation status
of your old Windows, creates the new license certificate, and blows
away your previous install. And you never had to enter a product key.

Hello Caroline and all, logging into groups that I owe is very simple and easy. Very simple instructions to do this. First of all, it requires you to reset your password because it doesn't automatically email you your password whenever you subscribe to the group. However, I can possibly have this changed in the beta group. But for now, here's a simple or an easy way to do this. You can first start out, by going to the homepage of the groups.I0. Then clicking the login button, then click the forgot password button, enter your email address. Then click the forgot password button. Or whatever the button is next to that. After clicking this button, you can simply go back to your inbox, click a Nother link. That will take you to a place to reset your password. In this box, you will type in a new password. Once this is done click save and then you are good to go to log in pure groups that I/O account. Please feel free to give a shout at me the ways below in my signature if you get stuck and need help. The best way for the weekend is contacting me via phone as I am hardly at the computer on the weekends. For international callers you can simply FaceTime your iMessage me to schedule an appointment or email me to schedule an appointment and I will get back with you at my earliest convenience.

Hi Carlos,

I like the way you are doing it now, sending the message on the list to
the group. If people do not want to see it, they can press the delete
key. Having said that, you could do both, putting the info up on the page
and sending it to the group.

Blessings and All the Very Best,

Pat

Re: Did a clean install of Win 10 without upgrading

Yes I know. LOL and I'm still surprised that it worked with a dual boot configuration. Looks like Microsoft will bend over backwards at this point to encourage upgrades.
