HOW TO INSTALL AND RUN WINDOWS 10 FROM A USB DRIVEClick To Tweet
You install a new version of Windows 10 so the first thing that we want to do is we want to create an install media.
I have already a USB it’s an 8 gig stick so you want a minimum of 8 gig and then you want to go to Windows to the Windows website and download the media creation tool.
So to do that you navigate to Microsoft com software download Windows 10 and you’ll see this create Windows 10 installation media so what we want to do is we want to download the tool I trust it so I’m just going to run it but you can save it and then you can run a navy skin on it but it’s quite trustworthy that will then get a few things ready and then you’ll be able to install.
So the first screen that you come to is the standard license screen so we accept that so the next option that you’ll see is it’ll ask you if you want to upgrade this PC or if you want to create the installation media.
We want to select this option here because we’re going to be creating the media installation on a USB stick that is going to be bootable.
The way that we would upgrade is we would insert the USB stick and start the machine to boot from that USB device.
so we click on next’ select it’ll automatically detect what version you’ve got currently running when you install Windows 10 you will be prompted one more version you want so this occur immediate all where you can install all versions of Windows 10.
Home professional or the end version as well we’re going to select use the recommended options for this PC but obviously if you’re installing it on another system you would uncheck the box and select whether it’s 32-bit 64-bit or both.
Then the actual edition of Windows it’s just going to select Windows 10 is going to give you all those options later so in my instance all my PCs are 64 bit so I’m going to select use the recommended options for this PC.
And then we move on, now you can create an ISO file that you can burn to a DVD that’s an option if you got a drive in your machine that you want to use there’s not many laptops for instance that come with the DVD Drive anymore everything tends to be USB flash drive.
So that is the option that I’m going to select and then we’re going to move forward we’re not going to give it a label I’m happy with having it as whatever it decides it’s going to give it and then we’re going to click on next.
This will take a little bit of time while it creates the installation once we’ve downloaded Windows 10 then all I’ll come back and we’ll move on so that’s halfway through the download now this all is based on your broadband or your internet connection speed.
If you’re on a really slow connection you might need to leave this running overnight depends on the speed of your connection so once the software is downloaded it’ll then go off and create the media.
What I do is once this is finished I’ll come back again and we’ll get it installed onto a laptop okay so that’s completed that whole process took around about 20 minutes so once you’ve done that you can safely eject your USB drive and then we can go off and connect that onto the laptop for the installation.
So to run through this demo I’m going to be using a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series it’s a core i3 it’s a twobyears old now so it’s a perfect to do a fresh install of Windows 10.
What we want to do is we are going to insert the USB drive into the laptop like that then we’re going to power it on and you want to select your boot options so in this instance we are going to use f12 but it may be different depending on what the manufacturer of your devices.
So I’ll what we want to do is we want to go down and pick the UEFI generic flash disk and we’re going to be installing from that so here we are at the options so the first thing we’re going to make sure you would obviously pick the countries that you’re in for us it’s the UK and we’re goanna click on install now.
Again this is the license term so we’re going to read all about all of that detail I’m going to accept the license terms. OK so do you want to upgrade or do you want to do a fresh installation so if you’re having problems with your laptop or your PC I would really suggest installing a fresh copy.
You’ve obviously got your backups running anyway on your old system so you would be able to restore all of your documents Photos and music from that backup but if you haven’t got a backup.
Then you’re a bit stuck I’m afraid but so we’re goanna run through the fresh install now this has already got a version of windows on so what we are going to do here is you can delete everything if you want but what I’m goanna do is I’m going to keep everything apart from the installation.
So just run through that again partition four it will always be your primary partition of where Windows is installed so I’m going to delete that partition this just takes a few seconds while it wants everything and then what I’m going to do is. I’m going to select the UN allocated space to install the new version of Windows click on next that will then copy all the files and get ready and do the install for us so once that’s completed it’ll restart windows but you don’t need your USB sticking at this this stage — what I’m going to do is well that’s rebooting.
I’m goanna remove the USB stick and let that boot up from the drive directly so once that’s got yourself ready he’ll give itself another rebound hi there I’m Cortana and I’m here to help a little sign in here a touch up Wi-Fi.
We’ll have your PC ready for all you plan to do so that’s it, you need to run through the configuration options and select your privacy settings and once that’s completed that will be all you need to do so the first thing we’re going to do is we’re going to pick our region.
I’m going to connect to the Wi-Fi now if you’re on your home network you can select various options so we’re going to pick the defaults for that.
We’re going to move on and now what that will do that will download any updates that it needs to get up and running properly with all the right hardware.
This is where you create an account now if you’re a Microsoft fan you can enter your Microsoft account details. Here now what this will do it will enable all of your account settings to sync between devices.
So if you use two or three Windows PCs all are your favorites and things like that will sync across and various settings as well.
Now in my instance I never do that I always create an offline account it will then prompt you to sit to see if you really do want to use a an offline account so I don’t want to sign in with Microsoft instead.
So I’m going to say no and we’re going to create a user now normally you would give it a password at this stage it’s important that you protect the security of your device because this is only a demo I’m not going to create a password so Windows will let you do that now.
The next thing that we want to do is do you want to make Cortana your personal assistant I don’t so I say decline and I don’t want to do more across devices with any activity history.
I am going to say no to that I don’t use don’t want to use speech recognition so I select that option I do want to use location based experiences for things like whether I don’t want to be able to find my device because you need to have a Microsoft account for this I don’t want to use one.
So I’m going to accept that and I then select basic diagnostic information to Center Microsoft on system crashes I don’t want to improve and writing capabilities because I don’t intend to use it.
I’m just going to use the keyboard and I do want to get tailored experiences based on the diagnostic data so this is things like tips and adverts and stuff so it’s up to you.
If you want to select now on this one no you won’t see anything but they’ll be rest less relevant in my instance. I will say yes to that and I do want to see relevant adverts otherwise you just get bombarded with absolute rubbish. It doesn’t mean anything to you so you might as well accept him and then switch it off using an ad blocker later.
That’s pretty much it now Windows will run through some final setup options and then we’ll boat into Windows.
Now this might take a little bit of time depending on the hardware that you’re reinstalling Windows on so in my instance I’m using a core i5 processor so this will probably take I don’t know 10 minutes or so and that’s it.
So you’ll now you’ve now booted into windows will go off and get whatever updates.
It needs I’m going to close the browser down at this point and then I’m goanna run Windows Update to make sure that’s all I’m happy in the meantime I’m just going to leave this for about 30 minutes or so.
While it does its thing and then I’m going to check on its reboots status if it needs a reboot I’ll give it a reboot. That will then have all the correct drivers installed so your screen graphics driver, your network port driver, USB etc.
So that’s really all there is to it.
