I have 3 w7 PC at home I am happy with them as is, I even have a USB w7 install key with added usb 3.0, nvme etc drivers for ryzen 3600/b450 board made with some tools from the really helpful peeps in the w7 forum boards that works quite good. That said while 2 of the Pc will stay on w7 for now I am replacing my ageing i5-750 PC soonish with a ryzen 5800x/x570 board and plan on making this my main PC and with VR also in mind so I need windows 10 installed on this one. Hopefully now lots of the w10 issues have been sorted and work around found! What I need is advice on how to: get windows 10 Pro from my existing w7 Home install that uses the daz loader to make it genuine? is it possible to do a clean w10 install and then make it genuine in some manner like using the daz loader or do we NEED to use the w7 upgrade path? which bloatware remover tool should I be using? which privacy tools should I be using? how can I make it look like windows 7 as much as possible? I hate the tiles and would like the windows explorer function to be more familiar. is it possible to remove some of the crappy candy crush type bloat while keeping the MS Store..I am not sure but I think for VR I need to keep cortana too. are there any tool to make a nice windows 10 pro usb installer so I can do quick easy clean installs? is there anything else I should be thinking about to decrapify w10 and/or so MS doesn't know instantly what I had for breakfast and what I did with my wife on the couch while watching tv? Thanks for any tips, insight and advice.
