Windows 10 question

So my question is is there a way to not pay a premium to get a Windows 10 USB install/ whatever it is called on top of the Windows 10 license?

So unless I'm reading this wrong. The ISO for USB install is completely free. You download it off microsofts website, but you will need to buy the windows 10 license key.

You're essentially paying for the Product Key when you purchase Windows.

With that key you can legally download and make your own bootable DVD or USB in order to install it. Though normally you get sent either a DVD or USB when you purchase Windows anyway (depending on the version).

What happens if you have the free upgrade and decide to install the windows on a new computer? Is that possible?

If I'm not mistaken, you would have to install the base one ( the one you can get the free upgrade with) and then upgrade from there, therefore you would not be able to have a clean windows 10 install.

I don't know the differences between and clean install and a clean one do.
