I got locked in one of those update loops. You know what I mean, probably. My Windows 10 would start an automatic update, then fail, and then reset itself to a previous version. This would happen all of the time. I managed to use one of the methods to successfully do an update (by stopping the update service etc.). Now, here is the reason why I am making this post. In case I want to ever do a completely fresh reinstall of Windows 10, I want to know how to do this because the CD (DVD, maybe?) and all I have is the ("OEM"?) sticker with the associated ID numbers.

Xarzu,You can "Create Windows 10 installation media", either bootable USB or bootable DVD, whichever you prefer. The latest release is at https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10Check the version of Windows 10 you\’re using (ie 32 or 64 bit, Home or Pro) and download the same version as you\’ve got now.Do a clean install from the media you create, and it will activate automatically on your computer currently running Win10.
