-### Download  +
- +
-You can download latest .ISO of Win 10, 8.1 and 7 [directly from Microsoft's servers]( Note that you'll have to spoof the user agent if you're on Windows, as you'll get redirected to the Media creator tool otherwise. +
- +
-The W10 ISO contains both Home and Pro edition which you get to choose during installation. If you want to install a W8.1/7 version that is not available directly from MS, you could possibly (ab)use the .../sources/ei.cfg file to change installed version that is going to be installed. +
- +
-<del>You can download older versions of windows and different versions of W10 through [this method](</del> +
- +
-If you want something like Enterprise versions and such you'll have to resort to torrenting them and <del>[THEN CHECKING THE HASHES provided by Microsoft](</del>+

- +
-### Windows 10 Installation  +
- +
-[[Creating a bootable flashdrive|Boot from the flash drive]]. Remember to always select "Custom" where applicable. You can skip creating a Microsoft account by trying to login with a nonexistent email. +
- +
-Windows usually gets all the drivers itself, but if something doesn't work as it should you might need to visit your motherboard or device manufacturer's website and download drivers/update firmware. +
- +
-Windows usually downloads an outdated GPU driver so head over to [AMD's]( or [Nvidia's]( website depending on what GPU you have. +
- +
-If you already have or had a W10 license, then your hardware ID combination(should be motherboard+CPU) is stored on Microsoft's servers and your license will be obtained automatically when you connect to the internet, provided you installed the same W10 version. +
- +
-If you don't have a W10 license you can either: +
- +
-1) Buy a license key from official source. **Buying from unofficial sources/grey markets is exactly as illegal as cracking it. You'd be literally giving your money away to thieves. The keys are from hacked MSDN accounts, credit card frauds etc.** +
- +
-2) If you're in college or some sort of academic institute, they might have MSDN licenses, see if you can find a copy from their IT department. +
- +
-3) Not activate W10 - you will not be able to use Personalization features and it'll nag you +
- +
-4) Activate W10 with [KMSpico]( Defender will complain about it, allow it manually in Defender after installing it. Alternatively you can use [vlmcsd]( if you want an open source, more hardcore solution. +
