Install Windows 10 from the USB Drive
After inserting the USB drive with the installation files into the target PC, you must change the boot order so that the machine loads the operating system from the USB rather than the hard drive.
You must enter the boot menu at startup in order to carry out this. Press the relevant key to access the BIOS or UEFI controls during machine bootup. Your computer will determine which key you need to press, although it’s often F11 or F12.
Your PC will reboot from the USB drive once you’ve chosen it from the boot menu and prompt you to hit any key to start the installation media.
You must select the language to install, the time and currency format, and the keyboard or input method at the start of the setup procedure. You won’t need to make any changes here. However, if you want to change, click the down arrow to bring up a selection of alternatives, and then click the choice you want to pick.
To proceed, click “Next”
Click “Install Now” on the following screen.
In a few seconds, you’ll see a screen indicating that the setup is beginning. The Windows Setup window will then show up. If you have a product key, enter it in the text box below. You may still use a restricted version of Windows 10 if you don’t have a product key; you’ll just have to input one later to activate everything.
Whenever you enter a product key, click “Next”. If not, choose “I don’t have a product key.”
Choosing which Windows 10 edition to use is the next step. As keys are only valid for particular versions, if you have a Windows 10 key, be sure you select the correct release of Windows 10. To choose a version, click it. Then click “Next.”
On the following screen, check the box next to “I Accept the License Terms” and then click “Next.”
You are prompted to choose the installation type you wish to carry out on the next screen. Click “Custom: Setup Windows Only (Advanced)” since we’re performing a new install.
After that, decide where Windows 10 will be installed. In the Name section, it can read “Drive 0 Unallocated Space” if your hard drive is fresh new. Choose the one on which you wish to install the OS if you have several drives, and then click “Next.”
The Windows files will then start to install via the Wizard. Depending on the hardware you’re using, installation may take a while.
Your computer will restart when the Wizard has completed installing the files. In some strange circumstances, you could be yourself in a boot loop where the computer keeps trying to restart the installation process. The system may be attempting to read from the USB device rather than the hard disk that you installed the OS on. Simply take out the USB device and restart the computer if this happens.
Now Windows 10 will be up and running. The Start menu, the Taskbar, the Action Center, your icons, and even the overall look of Windows 10 are all extremely configurable in Windows 10. Let’s start now!
