    Those who want to upgrade to Windows 10 TH2 build 10586.xxx to Anniversary Update Build 14393.xx . But don’t want to go through the process of making bootable USB/DVD and then boot from those media by changing the boot priority in boot menu etc. Its also best process for EFI/UEFI boot systems. But still you want a clean install of Windows 10 by formatting C drive or reinstall Windows 10 itself... these are the few very easy steps.

    No extra activation required for original windows. If the current windows is activated properly, also works with cracked windows most of the times. You need the proper ISO to do this. like 8.1 home single language needs ONLY Windows 10 home single language ISO ( right language, architecture and edition. check from the 4th images). download link is there below. 1. Now just open the setup.exe file inside the ISO and follow the steps. Given steps are in images one by one(3 images one by one.)

    NOTE: clean install will delete all your documents as well as all apps, softwares from C drive. so backup all the documents file before install. and no need to worry about any paid windows apps as those are linked to Microsoft account, you can get it easily later.

    DRIVERS: DONT install any drivers first. DONT use DPS(driver pack soulution) At first go to WINDOWS UPDATE. Check for updates and Windows Update will almost all the drivers. If some drivers get missing then first check the manufacturer's website. If no proper driver is available for Windows 10 then try with Slim Driver or Iobit Driver booster. Happy install Windows 10.

    Those have original windows 7/8/8.1 and want to completely clean install windows 10 without worrying about activation. Follow this steps.

    This is useful for those have legacy BIOS, but those have EFI/UEFI BIOS ie, the newer systems they should follow clean_upgrade # process.

    Not valid for Any Enterprise edition of Windows.

    Download the Official Windows 10 ISO from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/techbench

    Now make a bootable USB with Rufus download from here: https://rufus.akeo.ie/downloads/rufus-2.10.exe

    Open Rufus and select the downloaded ISO.
    Step 1. Open the ISO and Go to the folder, 'sources' there is a file named 'gatherosstate.exe'. Copy/drag that file to Desktop.

    Step 2. Right click and run the file as administrator and it will generate a file named GenuineTicket.xml. Keep this file on a safe place, like on another HDD or another pen drive. This file contains your license information which you will need later to activate windows 10.

    Step 3. With the bootable USB clean install windows 10 by formatting C drive. After installing windows 10 Copy the previously generated GenuineTicket.xml file to the path C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\ClipSVC\GenuineTicket. when connected with the network. And restart PC.

    NOTE: Make sure to backup all the important documents, files from C: drive to another drive.

    DRIVERS: DONT install any drivers first. DONT use DPS(driver pack soulution) At first go to WINDOWS UPDATE.

    Check for updates and Windows Update will almost all the drivers. If some drivers get missing then first check the manufacturer's website.

    If no proper driver is available for Windows 10 then try with Slim Driver or Iobit Driver booster. Happy install Windows 10.
