    Question

  • If virus or other problem requires reformat of primary hard drive, what is the procedure for re-installing Windows 10? Free upgrade did not provide a Windows 10 Install disc.

  • Hello,

    If I understand the process you can enter the key for the Windows 7 or 8 (8.1) that was originally updated to Windows 10 when Windows 10 asks for a key.

    However, I have not actually attempted this 9yet), so I'd ask in the Windows 10 Update forum on Microsoft Community.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

    Once there, click on Participate near the top of the screen, and select 'Ask a Question' or 'Start a Discussion'

    The MSDN, TechNet and Expression Library Feedback forum is to "Help improve the Library Experience in MSDN, TechNet and Expression by providing feedback on features, bugs, look and feel or by just providing suggestions". This is not a support forum.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the Where is the forum for... forum.
