I may missed it. Is there a method to do a clean install of Windows 10 upgrade?

I did it , it been a while so I try to remember (there's a walk through on youtube) . First if your getting the free upgrade, go to the up grade page and download the OS you want. If you have a 32 bit OS you can upgrade to 64 bit if you want (that's what I did). I downloaded it to a 3 gb flash drive. It should be blank so transfer any files you want to keep because the info on it will automatically go BY BY . I then went to the SETTINGS page, then the UPDATE & SECURITY page, then L clicked RECOVERY, then under ADVANCED STARTUP I L clicked RESTART NOW. You will need a "CODE" This will wipe the hard drive. You will need to go into the BIOS and set Boot Priority, so the computer will start from the OS on the USB flash drive. Pick the storage device you want it on to be first inline. You will have to make a partition for your OS, but they make this simple. LOOK at youtube I may have written some of this wrong ! ! ! If you have a ligament right for the free up grade they will give you a "CODE" This is for a clean install.

I just read the tutorial, and realized that i was coming from already having win 10 installed. I needed to do a clean install because I wanted to go from 32 bit system to a 64 bit system. That's what I had to go through to get my 64 bit system. Sorry for the confusion . Hope you get it sorted out Trident. I couldn't activate Windows 10 , so I went on online chat with support and they gave me a new "CODE" Once I got the 64 bit up and running , I got 8 gb of ram. Win 10 ,i think is great. It's like a new computer.

One other thing I forgot to mention (I don't think I saw it in the tutorial) is. If you got your computer with a OS already installed, and didn't get the disk, you might like to know this.
If you don't like Win 10, with a clean install, you can't roll back to where you came from, from your computer ! ! ! I think there is a way around this (I didn't do this). There's a tutorial on this too, maybe you can find it here, Google it, or Youtube. You will have to download your OS to a USB Flash somehow from your hard drive or what ever you have it on, before you do your CLEAN install. Now, if you have the code from an old OS like Win7 or Win 8.1 you may be able to download it online. If you have your old disk with your old OS on it this point is moot. No matter what you do you'll need a legitimate "code" For any of this to work (this is in the tutorial).

You could also borrow a disk from someone and use your code to reinstall the old OS. I actually use my Windows 7 disk to reinstall 7 on both my parents PC's. You do need to go to the manufactures website and download the drivers, but it's a great way to install Windows without all the bloatware that comes on most prebuilt systems.
