Create installation media

Use power iso software or rufus to create installation media

You’ll need a blank USB drive with at least 8GB of space (or a blank DVD) to put the Windows 10 installation files on.

You’ll need to run the tool, accept Microsoft’s terms, and then select “Create installation media for another PC” when you get to the “What do you want to do?” page.

You’ll select the language and edition of Windows you want as well as whether it will be 32-bit or 62-bit, and then select the type of media you want to use. Installing from a USB drive is easiest, but you can find details on using a DVD and ISO file here. You’ll then choose your USB drive from a list of drives, and the tool will download the necessary files and put them on the USB  drive.

(Note: If you are upgrading a Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 PC, you can actually use this tool to simply download and install Windows 10 directly to your computer. Just run the program as an administrator, and when you reach the “What do you want to do?” section, select “Upgrade this PC now,” and follow the remaining steps in the tool. This will also give you the option of keeping your files and apps during the installation process.

Use the installation media

Insert your installation media into the computer you plan to install Windows 10 on, then access your computer’s BIOS or UEFI.

This is the system that allows you to control some aspects of your computer’s hardware, and it’s built into your motherboard. This step is unique to your specific hardware, so we can’t walk you through exactly what to do. But, you should be able to figure out the process for accessing this by checking on your computer or motherboard manufacturer’s website.Advertisement

Generally accessing a computer’s BIOS or UEFI involves holding a specific key during the boot process, often Escape, F1, F2, F12, or Delete. So, figure out which key your computer uses, then shut it down. Boot it back up, and hold the necessary key as soon as it starts to boot

Change your computer’s boot order

In your computer’s BIOS or UEFI, you’ll need to find the settings for boot order. This may show up in a section called “Boot” or “Boot order.” This decides which devices are used first when the computer starts up. 

The computer won’t boot into the Windows 10 installation tool unless the drive it’s on is higher up in the boot order than the drive holding the computer’s current operating system.

You should move the drive (whether it’s your USB drive or a DVD drive) to the top of the boot order menu.

You may also need to disable Secure Boot if your computer uses it.

Save settings and exit BIOS/UEFI

Your computer should now boot into the Windows 10 installation tool, which will guide you through the process of setting up Windows 10 on your computer.

Once you have updated the boot order, you can begin the Windows installation process.Place the Windows disc in the CD/DVD drive or USB thumb drive into the back of the computer.

Turn on or restart the computer. As the computer starts up, it should detect the installation disc or drive and show a message similar to Press any key to boot from CD. Press any key on the keyboard to have the computer boot from the Windows disc or drive.

After the Windows install begins, there are several prompts that you need to answer. Select either Yes or the appropriate option to install Windows.

Install Note

Make sure you select the Full Install option and not the Repair or Upgrade option.Upgrade Note

If you are upgrading to a newer version of Windows, select the Upgrade option instead of the Full Install option.When asked which partition to install Windows onto, select the main partition, which is usually the C: drive or one labeled “Unallocated partition”. If upgrading Windows, select the existing installation of Windows on the hard drive.

You may be asked if you want to erase all contents on the hard drive, then install Windows. We recommend you choose this option, as it also formats the hard drive to allow the Windows operating system to be installed.

The computer may need to restart several times during the Windows install process. The restarts are normal and if prompted to restart, select the Yes option.

When the install process is nearly complete, the Windows configuration option screens are shown. On these screens, you may be asked to select the time zone you live in, your preferred language, and the name of the account you use to access Windows. Select the appropriate options and enter the appropriate information on each configuration screen.

The Windows install process is completed when the computer prompts you to log in or when it loads into Windows.
