Don't use manufacturer's install

I never deploy a laptop with the factory OS, because I don't want all the crap, advertising, and possible spyware that they all ship with.

Windows 10 is registered to the hardware. Download from MS and keep around a raw, clean Win10 USB key, blow away factory install and install that.
