Microsoft Corporation has made a Windows 10 Pro ISO file available for the public to download and install. With Windows 10 Disc Image, interested customers will no longer need a new Windows 10 product key to install this operating system.

The process is guaranteed legitimate so you do not have to worry about getting yourself in trouble down the road. However, it is important to remember that a genuine Windows product key will be asked for activation purposes during and after the installation.

Before getting into the installation process, Microsoft has a few requisites that you need take note. First, a reliable internet connection; second, enough memory space on your PC to accommodate the ISO file; and third, a blank USB storage device or DVD with at least 4 gigabytes of free space for the media.

It is not recommended to clean install your PC since Windows will require a product key if so. Just ensure you meet all of the aforementioned requirements to avoid unnecessary circumstances.
