HOW TO INSTALL WINDOWS 10?

A few years ago, Microsoft decided that users of personal computers that had the Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1 operating system installed on their computer could install Windows 10 for free . Also, the full version, not a beta or a demo ..

Unfortunately, after one year, on July 29, 2016 Microsft decided that the deadline to install Windows 10 from Windows 7 or Windows 8 for free had ended, depriving that possibility of not having installed it before that date WindowsCall ...

Thus, users who do not install Windows 10 before July 29, 2016 may not do so legally and must look for other methods, such as buying it. But those who did decide to install the new Windows already have the license forever on that computer.

The team that already has the license, can delete Windows 10 and put another operating system, which will not lose the license, you can reinstall Windows 10 whenever it deems appropriate.

HOW TO MAKE A CLEAN INSTALLATION OF WINDOWS 10?

A clean installation of Windows 10 means installing Windows 10 on an empty or formatted hard disk, similar to if we installed it from a DVD or USB.

In order to be able to do the clean installation of Windows 10 with a valid license , we had to install Windows 10 by means of the update that was offered to us during a year until July 29, 2016.

If you already did it, you will already have Windows 10, but if you want to delete all useless files that you will no longer use to have your computer clean you must follow these steps:

  • Verify that Windows 10 is correctly activated. To do this we will have to go to Settings> Update and security> Activation where the message "Windows is activated" will be displayed.
  • Back up all the files we want to keep. To do this we go to Settings> Update and security> Backup .
  • Once these two steps have been completed, we can proceed to the clean installation of Windows 10. To do this, go to Settings> Update and security> Recovery and click on the «Start» button.
  • Then a menu with three options to choose will appear, we click "Remove All".

The installation begins and, depending on the equipment, it will take several minutes or even hours. But it is worth it, since with Windows 10 the computer works much better and acquires speed.

INSTALL WINDOWS 10 FROM USB

To perform the installation of Windows 10 via USB we have to make sure that Windows 10 is activated and make a backup. That is, the first two steps of the clean install section of Windows 10 .

After doing these two steps we must write down two very IMPORTANT things :

  • The version of Windows 10 . To do this we go to "Configuration" , go to "Update and security" and locate "Activation" . There we can see what edition of Windows 10 we have and write it down.
  • Version architecture , if we have it in 32 bits or 64 bits . To do this we go to "Configuration" , enter "System" , click on "About" and locate "System Type" .
  • Once this is done we will have to access the Microsft website or click on the following link:
  • Once we are there, click on "Download the tool now" .
  • The tool will be downloaded, which when opened will show us two options of which we will choose to "Create an installation medium for another PC" .
  • We click next and then ask us to enter the language, architecture and edition (which we noted previously).
  • It is very important to put the architecture and edition that corresponds to our activated edition of Windows (which we noted above), or if not after installation we will not be able to activate correctly.
  • We click next and ask us to create an installation USB drive, or an ISO file. We chose to create a USB drive.
  • When we have the USB drive created, we can restart the computer. Attentive, because when restarting the PC we must press F11 as soon as we start to enter the Boot menu and choose “start from USB”.
  • After this we will choose between "Update" or "Custom" , if we want the clean installation we will choose "Custom" . After this we will be asked for a password, we click on "skip", since Windows will be activated automatically afterwards.

Now the installation errors will begin and Windows will guide us to complete it with a few simple steps.

 

INSTALL WINDOWS 10 WITHOUT LICENSE

Recall that in order to install the new Windows it was necessary to have on the Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1 computer and have done it before July 29, 2016. But it is possible to install Windows 10 from scratch , without having to have the operating systems that we have mentioned and on the dates we are.

To install Windows 10 without a license we must enter the Microsoft website by clicking here.

Once on the Microsoft page we must click on the "Download now the tool" button that will download an assistant to install Windows 10 on your computer.

When starting this wizard you will not give two options, we will choose «Update your PC now» and the installation of Windows 10 will begin.

 

Remember that Windows 10 without a license has some small limitations that some users might bother but most do not care, these limitations are:

  • You will permanently have a watermark at the bottom right of the screen. You will only stop seeing this watermark when you play video games or use full screen applications.
  • You will not be able to customize the start menu, you will not be able to configure Windows 10 themes, nor will you have access to the customization options of the operating system. But if you can change the wallpaper.

These are the only disadvantages that it presents, which as you can see, are not important at all. Otherwise, everything works just like licensed Windows 10, the same speed, the same features and periodic updates.
