    I also downloaded the x64 English ISO and did a clean install. The key on the download page does work:

    Win 8.1, Win 10P, Win7-all, RIP XPP, 'droid 2.2, 2.3,4.x, 5..IOS,


    idle curiosity: did you install from a sd, microsd, flashdrive, or dvd? or none of the above ??

    if one installs on a drive that already has 7 or 8 on it, as before, will the install routine quarantine the previous files and proceed apace?

    Did a clean install twice which wipes the hard drive clean. Once from DVD and the second time from USB flash drive. Nothing is saved from the previous OS.
