Windows 10 Installation Guide

There are two main ways to install your Windows 10. The process differs for upgrading and for clean installation. If you want to upgrade from Windows 7 or 8, please use the Guide number 1, if you have Linux OS, Windows Vista or later versions, or you want to install Windows on a computer without any operating system, use the Guide number 2.

Please choose the right guide for you by clicking one of the buttons.

Installation guide 1: How to upgrade to Windows 10

If you have a laptop or a PC with already installed Windows and you’d like to upgrade from Windows 7 or 8, or you want to re-install your Windows 10, the process is really simple.

  1. Download Media Creation Tool (MCT) for the version of Windows 10 that you bought:

    Download MCT for Windows 10 Home

    Download MCT for Windows 10 Pro

  2. Open the MediaCreationTool.exe file by clicking on it.
  3. Select the Create installation media for another PC option.
  4. Now select your language, edition and architecture and click Next.
  5. Choose the ISO file option.

Installation guide 2: How to do a clean installation of Windows 10

If you’d like to perform a clean installation, you will need to create an installation media.

Please note: This process is more complicated than upgrading from an older version, or re-installing, and we recommend it is only done if you’re an advanced computer user. If you’re not, then please contact our customer support to help you.  

Before we’ll dive into how to install Windows 10 on your computer, make sure that:

  • you’re connected to the internet
  • you have a blank USB/DVD of minimum 8 GB
  • your PC meets the selected Windows 10 OS system requirements
  • you have at least 20 GB of free space on your Local disk (C:) drive
  • you have your product license key at hand
  • you have a backup of your data

Once you have everything ready, you can start with the installation.

Creating a bootable USB flash drive

Firstly, you will need to create a bootable USB with the Windows 10 Installation.

Follow these instructions to create your installation USB drive.

  1. Download Media Creation Tool (MCT) for the version of Windows 10 that you bought:

    Download MCT for Windows 10 Home

    Download MCT for Windows 10 Pro

  2. Insert the USB drive that you want to use as your installation media into your PC/laptop. It needs to be at least 8GB in size (you'll see "4GB" in the Creation tool, but Microsoft confirmed the larger number), and make sure you know which drive letter it’s been assigned (D, E, F, etc.). Select Create installation media for another PC and click next.
  3. Select your language, edition and architecture and click Next.
  4. Now you have to decide whether you want to create an installation media or just download an ISO file. To create a USB flash drive select the USB flash drive option and click Next.
  5. On the next screen, you’ll be prompted to choose the USB drive you’d like to use. Choose the appropriate removable drive and click Next.
  6. Now the Media Creation Tool will begin downloading Windows 10 to your PC. Once it’s downloaded the tool will then put Windows 10 on the USB drive. After that’s done, your drive will be ready. Click Finish, let the tool clean up, and unplug your USB drive.
  7. Now switch off the computer you want to install Windows 10 on. Plug the USB flash drive that you created earlier into the computer, then switch it on. The installation process should start automatically. If the process doesn’t start automatically, you will need to install the operating system through BIOS – see the guide below to find out how.

Optional: Installing Windows 10 via BIOS

Note: Do this only if you’re an advanced user, if you’re not sure what to do, contact our customer support to help you.

Start the computer and press ESC / F1 / F2 / F8 / F10 / F12 (try which one will work, the correct keyboard button is different for every system) during the initial startup screen. A BIOS menu will appear.

  1. Choose to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS setup utility page appears.
  2. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT tab. System devices appear in order of priority.
  3. To give a CD or DVD drive a boot sequence priority over the hard drive, move it to the first position in the list.
  4. To give a USB device a boot sequence priority over the hard drive, do the following:

    1. Move the hard drive device to the top of the boot sequence list.
    2. Expand the hard drive device to display all hard drives.
    3. Move the USB device to the top of the list of hard drives.
    4. Now choose save and exit the BIOS setup utility.
  5. The computer will restart with the changed settings and the installation of Windows 10 will automatically start.

And that’s all! If you run into any trouble while installing or activating your Windows 10, don’t hesitate to contact us either via e-mail info@software-deals.eu or by phone +420 516 770 431 .
