I've recently purchased the first gen Compute Stick STCK1A32WFC and it ran Windows 8 out of the box. I've recently updated it to W8.1 but it seems that the W10 free upgrade is not available anymore. Is it still possible for me to do a clean install of W10 on the stick and then apply the W8 product key when prompted?
(also is it me or is the BIOS update page not available anymore https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/86612/Intel-Compute-Stick-STCK1A32WFC https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/86612/Intel-Compute-Stick-STCK1A32WFC)
The free upgrade ended at the end of July.
Yes, you can do a clean install. No, you cannot use your W8.1 key.
You can purchase a copy of W10 here: https://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/cat/categoryID.70036700 Windows – Microsoft Store
The link for the bios is currently broken.
Hey, thanks for shedding light on this feature DeanGibson
Apparently I am eligible for the upgrade, but man one problem after another the Compute Stick only has 13.3GB out of 21.9GB of storage (after removing every single program/metro app/ccleaner junk). The W10 upgrade requires 16GB of internal space free, and so far I still haven't found the option to install it through USB (via Assistive Technology). Know of any other way to relieve my system of 3GB more space?
