Clean installed Windows 10 Home on a new SSD which worked but I couldn't activate it. Upgraded my Windows 7 installation and activated Windows 10 on that. Went back to my new SSD and reinstalled Windows 10. It then activated. No problems with installing things on it, including the latest nVIDIA drivers (353.60).
A password BOOK doesn't even need to be cracked, so it's not a solution to that problem - it's got the same problems as before PLUS it's not secured at all.
A password book can't be remotely accessed. That's a considerable security feature. You'll always have a local vunerability.
