Windows 10 has officially arrived, and Microsoft has begun to distribute the much-awaited update that will allow anyone with a Windows PC, Windows 7 and Windows 8, 8.1 to go for free to a new era by putting his hands on an innovative product can enhance the experience at 360 degrees on the PC and on the web. Updating, as noted, will be released through Windows Update, however, for all those who later had the need to perform a clean installation of Windows 10 on their PC , Microsoft released the official ISO images of the new operating system.

To underline some aspects. To use the official ISO images of Windows 10 you must have a valid Product Key. Therefore, before you can use the ISO for a clean installation, users must upgrade their PCs so that their original Product key (Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1) can be recognized by Microsoft as a valid Product Key for Windows 10. Upgraded, quote from that moment you can restore your PC using the official ISO and license already in your possession.

Microsoft points out that the ISO can be used to create either a DVD or a USB stick to start installing Windows 10. It should be noted that there is a free space of at least 4 GB on the media chosen.

The ISO image, finally, goes to install the retail build of Windows 10. All subsequent updates will be made through Windows Update and the Windows Store.

The ISO download website mention use "Media Creation Tool".

So this media creation tool will download ISO file or if the system was already upgraded then it will create ISO file from the available files on the system?

I have successfully upgraded to Windows 10. I am now creating a bootable USB media for a clean install. Will I require a key for that? How do I extract one from Windows 10? The Key Finder tool stated above has adware built into it.

Upgraded using the ISO and now It says "connect to the internet to activate" :(

Maybe it's time to go back to 8.1 and try the windows update upgrade.
it is not "maybe" but you have to do it first

The question is which one will work if want to do a clean install from scratch?

Ive upgraded from 8.1 to an Insider Build and then every Build until this final one.

I can test both out.

@Klipsh Why the one from BIOS?

Windows 8.1/10 have the Product Key stored in BIOS/UEFI.To find your Windows Product Key you can use also a program like OEM Product Key Tool or Nirsoft Produkey, both capable of reading the code even if stored in the computer's BIOS.
