    I just finished building my new computer and want to install Windows 10 on it.

    I have downloaded windows media creation tool and installed the boot files onto a USB. I am hoping that I can just activate it using the latest version of KMSPico but i'm a massive noob and dont want to mess anything up.

    Will this work?

    Yes, you can :) But for legit use, you better install 7 ultimate daz activated or 8.1 kms activated and do the upgrade to get a HWID.

    Cheers. I will go with upgrading then.

    So I just get a Windows 7 iso, and then activate it with this (dazloader . com) and then upgrade to windows 10? Should I bother with doing a clean install after, considering is a new computer?

    Daz loader is here on MDL (daz is a moderator here): http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/58464-Windows-Loader-Download. Personally I always preferr a clean install.

    Thanks. Sorry, but how do I go about do a clean install after the upgrade while still keeping it activated?

    There is no reason to do a clean install after the Upgrade to Win10

    Just install the correct version (pro if you upgraded to pro) and skip the 2 key questions.
