In this post i will show you how to install windows 10 on any pc. Generally there are two main ways to install windows 10- one by using a original windows 1 cd, or usb and the second one is by using the windows 10 download tool. Whats the difference between the two? I’ll tell you that.
If your pc has or had any problems and you wanted a clean install of windows 10 then you should follow the first process of installation by disk or usb. Then you have to format the whole c drive and make a clean installation of the Windows 10. The second process if for those who have a windows 7 or 8 on their pc and just want to upgrade to Windows 10. So know we know which process to use and when.Lets jump to process details.
Process-1 Installation by Cd Or Usb.
If you are using an USB, then first you have to convert into a bootable USB by flashing Windows 10 image on it using power iso or any such tool.
Now set your pc or laptop on boot mode.To do that keep pressing the F2 key to enter the Boot Options Setup. Here you will have to change the boot order. If your device uses Secure Boot / UEFI, you will have to change it to Legacy.
Use the arrow keys to navigate to the Boot tab and change the settings. Disable Secure Boot, enable Legacy option and set Boot List option to Legacy. Next move USB Storage Device to the first position and set it to be the first device to boot from. Once you have done this, with your USB connected to your laptop, restart the laptop.
Note for Windows 10 users: If you upgrade to Windows 10, the new OS will take the product key and activation details from your earlier OS. These are then saved on Microsoft servers, along with your PC details. If you clean install Windows the first time, you may face activation problems. If you performed an upgrade the first time, activated Windows 10, and then clean installed Windows 10 on the same PC, then there will be no activation issues, as the OS will pull activation details from Microsoft servers. So, if your Windows 10 isn’t activated, we suggest you not perform a clean install the first time. First Upgrade the first time, Activate it and then Clean Install.Now, On restart, your computer will boot from the USB, and display the following screen.
Choose the Language to install, the Time & Currency format and the Keyboard or Input method, and click on Next. You will see the following screen. Click on Install now.The setup will start.You will be presented with the License terms. Accept it and click on Next.
You will be asked, the type of installation you want. Since we want to go in for a fresh or clean install, select Custom Install. Next you will be asked the Partition where you want to install Windows 10. Select your partition carefully and click Next. If you did not create a partition earlier, this setup wizard also lets you create one now.Windows 10 installation will start. It will copy setup files, install features, install updates if any, and finally clean up the residual installation files. Once this is done, your PC will restart.If Windows 10 is the only operating system on your computer, you may be taken to the log in screen directly.Windows 10 will ask you a few basic questions about your preferences, before completing the installation and taking you to the Windows 10 desktop.
Process 2- Installation by Windows Download Tool
Like I said earlier this process is for those who do not want a clean install ,just want upgrade from one version to another and having a licence key of the previous version. You can use the Download Windows 10 tool. Click “Download Tool Now”, run it, and select “Upgrade this PC”. Follow the instructions on your screen to complete the upgrade process.The tool you use will download the Windows 10 installation files and begin the installation process.
