    Hey guys!
    I was searching for a guide for clean win 10 installation and activation, but there are so many topics :/

    Now I'm using a Windows 7 on my pc. It's activated, but I don't even know how...I just can't download that one update, that would recognize I'm using pirated version.

    And here's what I need. I'd like to download installation of Win 10 (probably home version, it's just a gaming pc), format my disk and do a fresh installation. So what I have to do? Can I just download Win 10 from official website, install it and then use Microsoft Toolkit? Will I have a working Win and that's all? Sorry for quite stupid post and ty for answers :D

    Why don't you just buy a Windows 10 key and install it legally? There's various places that sell Windows 10 keys cheap. Just buy a key, make a USB installer using the official Microsoft tool, boot from it, wipe the drive to get rid any cracks or other stuff you may have installed, install Windows 10 and use the key you bought to activate. Windows 10 Pro OEM can bought from around $15.

    I would recommend you to go with Pro version, Enterprise or Education and avoid HOME even if it is a Home-Game PC, because you can make use of other futures in the future if you need those.

    You can go with this scenarios:
    1. If you wish Home/Pro..., use gatherosstate trick. Your ticket will give you a "geniune" Digital License -

    It is important to know how is your windows 7 activated, genuine with Loader or with KMS?

    2. For Enterprise and/or Education, only KMS solution of activation is available.

    Read this, and follow the guide. It is very good.

    I don't think this applies to him:
    Preconditions:
    A. You have w7SP1/8.1 activated successfully (loader, OEM pre-installations, OEM_DM for w8.1, OEM system builder, retail).

    This would all depend on whether or not pirated activation is on a good OEM key

    I'd just do what Enthousiast said

    His windows IS ACTIVATED. So he can generate upgrade ticket.

    "Now I'm using a Windows 7 on my pc. It's activated, but I don't even know how...I just can't download that one update, that would recognize I'm using pirated version."

    If he didn't buy a windows 7 license, the tricky question how is his windows activated, with a Daz Loader or MsToolkit?

    Daz Loader and MsToolkit methods works, but the license code is being different. So maybe in the future, it may have a different effect on windows 10 updates and features.

    This only in the case he wish a Digital License for Pro/Home.
    For other the other, mstoolkit/KMS

    If the WAT update (kb971033) undo's the 7 Activation it's not activated by the only proper one: DAZ' "Windows Loader".

    When activated by Windows Loader no update can undo it.

    Only 7 Pro & Enterprise can be KMS activated, the most noob proof way to check if the pid (at the system screen) show either OEM (daz loader) or not (KMS), also the command "slmgr -dlv" (in an elevated cmd) will show either the retail/oem:slp channel (DAZ) or Volumeclient channel (KMS).

    This.

    Use the Microsoft authenticity validation tool to see if your actually running a genuine license. If you are then just do the gatherosstate trick or regular upgrade. Once activated in Windows 10 you can blow it away with a clean install.

    If you current Windows install comes up as not legitimate just buy a cheap Windows 10 Pro license so you don't have to worry about further activation tricks or issues.

    Also if someone knew one, no advertising it on MDL.

    I never seen any official seller in my country who sells keys seperatly from a dvd/electronic download and for less then the normal retail price of 100-119 euro Home OEM systembuilder / 169 euro Pro systembuilder.

    Those "real" keys mostly are unofficially obtained and are illegaly sold for money, not one of the MDL KMS posts are made money of by the creators. They aren't cracks, they just use MSFT's official activation options by emulation.
