    Overall, Windows 10 is a great OS for me - it's performance and stability have been excellent. I've only encountered minor issues such as running sfc /scannow reports 'corrupt files' on a completely fresh installation, also with PowerShell ISE - running upate Windows PowerShell Help returns errors.

    If you have a Win10 installation associated to your Microsoft Account then you don't need to enter any key to activate.
    Yesterday I decided to do a clean Windows 10 Pro install. I made a Win10 bootable USB using the Microsoft 'MediaCreationToolx64' tool. I booted from it, wiped my SSD, skipped the license key entry setup and booted into Win10 unactivated. I signed into my Microsoft Account and Windows 10 is now activated.


    Within your Microsoft Account, under devices, you should have a Windows 10 device attached to your account.

    I'm also a windows insider and upgraded my previous Windows 8.1 Pro install to various Windows 10 beta builds until the latest 10240 build.
