    I want to clean install Windows 10 on a Windows 7 system. I downloaded a windows 10 ISO file and created an installation DVD. Do I need to perform an upgrade from Win 7 first and then perform a clean install of Win 10? One source I've read says that this is no longer necessary (How to clean install Windows 10 and create boot media).

    Correct... At this time Microsoft does not require you to do an upgrade first then a fresh install... It was a stupid idea in the first place but they were worried about giving people more than one option.

    You should allow wx to activate once it has finished the install and booted to the desktop screen
