Hello, about a year ago, I upgraded to Windows 10 for free but experienced many troubles and the bottom line was that my motherboard isn't compatible with Windows 10.

But that means that the only thing I have is a product key, my windows 10 is not lnked to my account. I had to enter my old product key again — then it was activated. I contacted support and they gave me the motherboard spiel, and implied I was out of luck without a product key. I used logmein remote control with a Microsoft technician. Also, thanks for the info about how you reactivated Windows.
Further, they said if I had upgraded the hardware before upgrading to windows 10, I would have had not problem. Went in to activation settings and nothing there but I did hit troubleshoot and followed the path basically outlined in your instructions and it failed. The lower-tier support people will just try to take the easy way out and hoover up money from you if they can.

Each file type has a slighty different installation procedure to follow.
Windows 10 64 bits is the operating system that is required but you can use what you want but with un-proper drivers. Tonight I am going to have it search the extracted folder for a more recent driver since I think it installed 391 and the newest is 411. Will this method work in this case? The most important thing you can do is grab all the necessary drivers you'll need for your system. The power supply is correct. W10 is supposed to basically be W8.

In that case, Safe Mode is usually your friend. If it's freezing like you describe though, that doesn't sound right in itself, it'll be choppy scrolling through web pages for example but it shouldn't lock up. Technically, I think that an upgrade to Win 10 is not supposed to be transferable to new hardware, but in the past I did it all the time even tho that was officially not supported depending on who you ask. We've compiled a huge list of all the most recent products that have been blessed with new Windows 10 drivers.
Short answer is if you have time to troubleshoot then you can try working with Windows 10 otherwise don't try it.
