How to Install Windows 10 Clean
« on: September 26, 2015, 10:26:31 am »
Here is what you need to do to clean install Windows 10 on a computer system.

1. You need a Windows 10 DVD or ISO image for that. Download the tool from HERE. Make sure you pick the right architecture and version.

2. Burn the ISO, mount it or extract it. The download above will allow you to burn the iso to disc or put it on a USB drive.

3. Navigate to the folder \Windows\x64\sources or P:\Windows\x32\sources and drag & drop the file gatherosstate.exe to the desktop while you are still in your current OS, Windows 7 or 8.

4. Run gatherosstate.exe as Administrator under Windows 7 or 8, it will create a file named GenuineTicket.xml on the desktop. This file is needed to activate Windows later so copy it to a USB drive or other location.

5. Run a clean install of Windows 10 on the system, make sure you skip the option to type in the product key.

6. Once you are done installing Windows 10, copy the file GenuineTicket.xml to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\ClipSVC\GenuineTicket. The folder is hidden by default. If you cannot see it, select File > Options > View > Show hidden files, folders and drives in File Explorer. Then reboot your pc and Windows 10 is legitimately activated without having to go through the long "upgrade" process.
