Jay has a question about Windows 10.  “I downloaded installation media as you suggested to a flash drive. How do I get the product key to install it if I need it?


I covered how to create installation media to install Windows 10 in a previous article. 

If you’re upgrading Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 to Windows 10, you shouldn’t need a product key. You’re just updating the license you already have. Make sure you choose the option to upgrade and not the one for a clean installation.

If you don’t already have Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 installed on your PC, you’ll need to purchase a copy of Windows 10 from Microsoft or another retailer.
