    I'm building a PC for a friend and promised him windows wouldn't be a problem.

    I got windows 10 from the upgrade method from and old pre activated KMSpico windows 8.

    If someone could give me info on the best iso/activator method it would be much appreciated.

    If you've established a HWID by upgrading from 8.1 kms activated, why asking for an activator?

    If you have a HWID, then the iso to use will be the MSDN Multiple Editions iso.

    I have windows 10 on my PC. Are you saying I can create an iso from my version to and put it on a USB for him?

    Would the KMS VL ALL work with the anniversary edition on these forums. Sorry I can't post links to make this easier.

    Would this be better than using the anniversary edition with the KMS VL ALL

    Not really. How would I go about creating an iso from my windows then. I have the old disc I used. Are you still able to upgrade to 10 though?

    Sorry for all the questions.

    The link to the MSDN iso's is a few posts up ;)

    And yes, using the iso you can still upgrade from an activated win 7 SP1 or 8.1 and you still get a free HWID.

    OK, I have now found out he had a legit copy installed on his old pc when he bought it.

    I know I could teansfer this to his new ssd.

    Is there anyway I could do a fresh install from this?

    Is it an OEM system with win 8.x/10 pre-installed and activated by a the oem:Dm key? Then there is no need to do anything, it should activate by itself.

    But you've build a new system for him, you said:

    I would just establish a HWID by installing 7 SP1 Ultimate (BIOS/MBR) and activate by daz loader and upgrade to 10 Pro.

    Sorry about how messy this is getting. I appreciate the help.

    So he has his old pc which had retail windows 7or8 not sure. He has upgraded to 10 now.

    I am building his new pc tomorrow. Should I try and transfer his legit windows. I think I can transfer the license. I'm just not sure how to go about installing it on the new pc. Can I create an iso from his pc?

    Or should I just do as you said in the last post. Where is best to get the windows 7 and the daz loader?

    Again thanks for the help.

    You could try to link his old HWID to his MSA and transfer it to the new system.

    I would just re-establish a HWID as i said before,
