    Hello

    I have 2 laptops, one with Windows 10 Home & other with Win 10 Pro. Both of them were upgraded from Win 7 (which were activated by great DAZ Windows loader) and activated & were working fine.

    I just wanted to do a clean install of Windows 10 so downloaded the latest Win 10 ISO's (one for Pro & the other for Home edition) using Media creation tool and tried to install. Unfortunately both laptops are NOT activated now and asking for serial/buy Win 10. I guess it's because of incorrect download/build/edition? I know I can patch it with KMS or something but I don't want to do that.

    Could anyone please let me where can I get the correct builds for Win 10 Pro & Home editions so that a clean install directly gets activated on my laptops.

    Thanks in advance!

    The MCT downloads combinedmulti(sl) esd's and creates the iso from the esd.

    If you have valid HWID's for the laptops you can do clean installs, with the version you've established the HWID on, and they will be HWID activated, you only have to skip the 2 key input questions during installation.

    Thanks Enthousiast for your reply!

    Unfortunately I don't have the ISO's that I initially used for upgrading from WIn7 to Win10. Is there anyway I can get them?
    I didn't note down the hardware ID's prior to attempting clean install.

    Check here at the OP in RED, all iso's can be found there.
