I ordered a pc from Cyberpower pc (didn't have the time to build one) and just unboxed it and plugged it in. Now I did not order an OS because as a student I can get windows 10 for free through dreamspark. When I turned it on it had windows 8.1 installed however... So I set it up just to see what was going on. So now I have a product key for Windows 10, and windows 8.1 on the computer. What is the easiest and best method of getting windows 10 on this pc? I have a USB iso that I can use, but I just need to know what to do... when I restarted the computer with the USB plugged in it came up with the windows installation page and when I put in the product key it said it wasn't recognized. So I think that was the installation page for 8.1. As I see it I have two options, upgrade via the windows upgrade app, or wipe my drive and start from scratch? Advice please!!!
