    1. Hi Paul!

      Thanks for your comment. I’ll try to clarify this better in both my Upgrade and Install guides.

      There is actually a way of doing a clean install and still qualify for the free upgrade, but only when upgrading from media (i.e. not from the Get Windows 10 app). At the very last screen Ready to install before you initiate the Windows 10 upgrade, there is a Change what to keep link. If you click this link, and then select Nothing, you end up with an activated clean installation rather than an upgrade.

      Windows 10 Setup: Change what to keep

      I’m not sure many people know about this!?

      Kind Regards,
      Chris.
