    Hello,

    I have searched the forum and found 2 methods for activating Windows 10, KMS_VL_ALL and HWID.
    Which one is best and easiest to use?

    HWID (the official way) would need more work, but when established, it will not be flagged by any AV's and remain for the lifetime of the hardware (and when linked to your MSA, it will be transferable).
    KMS_VL_ALL is instantly working, but many (if not all) AV's will try to disable it (but still needed for office VL).

    Welcome to the forum.

    The term 'best' is relative. Actually there is another method.
    I use W10FRV, enter the key at install, easy. No hassle, no accounts, no worries.
    And when your MB dies , build a new PC , enter same key, activation success, repeat again when this MB dies...

    HWID is the best way.

    HWID whether using legacy bios (non-uefi) or uefi systems on activating w10

    HWID, or any activation for 10, isn't UEFI or Legacy BIOS dependent, it works on both.
