Create Windows 10 installation media

To get started, you will first need to have a license to install Windows 10. You can then download and run the media creation tool. For more information on how to use the tool, see the instructions below.

 

So, to get it for free you need legit activation key? Then how to upgrade if W7 activated by Daz Loader? :think:

if you want to skip an in-place upgrade or whatever M$ imposes, just follow those steps:

 

in your current OS.

look into the windows 10 ISO or installation media you have.

go to sources folder.
copy gatherosstate_XX.exe to your desktop (32bit or 64bit accordingly to your installed one).
execute gatherosstate_XX.exe from your desktop.
it will generate a GenuineTicket.XML file on your desktop.

copy GenuineTicket.XML to a flash drive for use after the windows 10 installation.

 

fresh install windows 10 (the way you like) *windows edition must match the M$ upgrade scheme".

mark the checkbox "i dont have a key..."

 

after the installation of the proper edition of windows 10.
copy the saved GenuineTicket.XML file to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\ClipSVC\GenuineTicket\


expect windows 10 to be activated with a digital license after a while or reboot.
*requires internet access all time.
