Need help De-activating windows 10

Hello and good day, ive recently found out that my copy of windows 10 is a pirated copy..i live in a 3rd world country and cant buy the version and have been trying to down grade to the free version of windows however when ever i try to install the copy of windows using the media creation tool it automaticly activates (saying its activated with a digital license, which i know is completly false since its pirated.) so i want to have a clean, un-pirated version but it just keeps activating on its own


any help on the matter?

You can boot the installation media, where you can delete / recreate partition, then continue the clean install and finally activate using your product key.

Hi AnonyMouse-7414,

The only way to resolve this issue fully will be to completely reinstall Windows 10 using a legitimate download and a valid license.

I suggest that you download the Windows 10 ISO from here:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10ISO

Then use a tool like Rufus to create a bootable USB. Then use a purchased Windows 10 license to activate it legitimately.
