Setting Up Windows 10

Windows 10 is the latest operating system from Microsoft, and many feel that it’s their best yet. For those that want to get away from their older operating systems, such as Windows 7, this is an easy guide to getting your new version of Windows 10 up and running in no time.

1st Step: Entering BIOS

If you don’t have a boot override option, you’ll need to go to the BIOS and UEFI Setup system to adjust some of the more low-level settings on your device. The best method of accessing Configuration varies from PC to PC, but usually Delete, F2 or F10 need to be pressed at startup, so you need to click it almost instantly after turning on or restarting your computer. When you look carefully, you may see the correct button on-screen as the machine turns on.

2nd Step: Setting Up From DVD/USB

Once in Setup, find the boot section. Then switch the boot order to put the device you want to boot from first; depending on your kind of activation software, this will be DVD or USB. Bootable USB flash drives are classified as hard disks. If this is the case, you should set’ hard disk’ as the first boot option, then go to the boot order sub-menu of the hard disk and place your USB boot disk at the top of the list. Select the Save and Restart option.

3rd Step: Choosing Install Options

Once in Setup, select your file, time and date format and input method, then press Next. Click the button that reads “Download Now.” Enter your Windows key, if prompted, and read and accept the license. Click ‘ Custom: Install Windows only (advanced) ‘ on next page. It doesn’t take much longer to get Windows running from here, meaning you can check the top picks for horse race betting or enjoying your favourite games in no time.

4th Step: Licence Key

You’ll be asked for your license key here. How you do this depends on the type of Windows 10 you have, which can come in a few different ways. If you’re already running Windows 10 and need your license key, you can always download ProduKey from there, and extract your Windows 10 product key. Write this down on paper or save it to external drive.

5th Step: Selection a Drive

What you’ll see on the following screen depends on whether you are installing on a blank disk, or whether your disk had an operating system installed at an earlier date. If it’s an empty disk, you’ll see an’ Unallocated Storage ‘ drive, so just pick it and press Next. Windows will then begin the installation process.

If your drive had an operating system on it before, or you have more than one hard disk in your PC, a display with several drives or partitions will be shown. The drives will be called’ Drive 0,” Drive 1′ and so on, and if a drive has a Windows setup already, it will be divided into partitions with tags such as’ Recovery,” Process,” MSR’ and’ Main.’
