This is a guide on how to create UEFI GPT Windows 10 Installer Using Genuine Windows 10 ISO

Very Important: This guideline is only suitable for motherboards that has native support for UEFI
Please don't follow this guideline on older motherboards that only support Legacy BIOS

1. Download Windows 10 Media Creation Tool from Microsoft - https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10
Windows 10 Media Creation Tool will allow you to download genuine Windows 10 ISO with no modification whatsoever unlike the ISO from torrent / 3rd party websites that may have been injected with malware / trojan or whatsoever virus

2. Download Rufus - https://rufus.akeo.ie/
Rufus is a tool for you to create a UEFI friendly Windows 10 installer using a flashdrive

3. Run The Windows 10 Media Creation Tool

4. Choose "Create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file for another PC" then press Next

Activating Windows 10 (Version 1511 or higher) using a Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 product key

During the free upgrade, you can use a valid Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 product key to activate Windows 10 (Version 1511 or higher). The following types of product keys are supported:

    Product keys included in the packaging or the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) attached to your PC that came installed with Windows.
    Product keys included in the confirmation email you received after buying Windows from an online retailer.
    Product keys included in the box the Windows DVD came in.
    Product keys you bought using Windows Anytime Upgrade or Get Genuine Windows.
    If you bought a Windows 8.1 Pro Pack product key, you can use it to activate Windows 10 Pro.

If you activated a free upgrade to Windows 10 or bought and activated Windows 10 from the Windows Store, you have a digital entitlement for your device. This means you can reinstall the same edition of Windows 10 that your device has a digital entitlement for without entering a product key. During reinstallation, if you’re asked to enter a product key, select Skip. Windows 10 will automatically activate online after the installation is complete.

QUOTE
Some Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1product keys can't be used to activate Windows 10, such as product keys for volume licensing, including Generic Volume Licensing Keys (GVLK) and Multiple Activation Keys (MAK), and Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8 Enterprise, and Windows 8.1 Enterprise.
