    When you need a genuine HWID you'll have to go thru the upgrade process (from either a daz activated win 7 or a genuine activated win 7) or do the gatherosstate trick first. After doing this you always can do a clean win 10 install which will be genuinely activated.

    Upgrade allows you keep their files and apps, it is a great choice for regular users.
    I like to do a clean install of the operating system even though it takes more time and more work.
