Install Windows 10 - video tutorial

Install Windows 10

Now that Windows 10 is stable, I decided to make a complete tutorial to install Windows 10.
We will go through all the steps together, from download to installation on a computer.
Why do we need to install the Windows 10?
This will be a clean installation, that will not only upgrade from an older version of the Windows 10. It will be a fresh installation.

Windows Installation Tutorial 10

The preliminary steps of installation:
1. Save all your important data to external hard disk, DVD or USB stick (if you already have Windows installed).
How to download windows 10?
2. Download Windows 10
3. Insert the USB stick or DVD
How to make a USB stick with Windows 10?
4. Create bootable environment
Preparing PC for installation
1. Make sure the boot is enabled in the BIOS menu (F12)
2. Turn on your PC and click F12, to enter the boot menu
3. Choose stick or optical drive boot list
Now to begin the installation, follow the steps in the tutorial, so you do not activate certain settings that do not want.
If you want to stop all settings prying, watching the tutorial: Privacy settings Windows 10.
After installation, you'll probably need some drivers. If you have Windows 8 or 8.1 and 10 want to install Windows, you can backup the drivers. Below you find some tutorials we talked about backup, downloading, and installing drivers.
How do I backup all drivers with Double Driver
How to install drivers for unknown components or unknown device
Where and how to download drivers for a Dell laptop
How to download drivers for your laptop, netbook, motherboard or other device ASUS
How to download drivers for Lenovo laptop or desktop
How portrivite download drivers for laptop
The fastest way to download drivers (Asrock)
Download drivers and software use HP printers and multifunction
On there are other tutorials related to drivers, but I did not want to crowd the text of this tutorial with Windows 10 installation. Search for "drivers + manufacturer" on the site's search engine.

  1. Hello ! While you can use Windows without activate it? Thank you !

    • I've put it on the laptop and I used some 3 months. The only inconvenience is the lack of certain personalization settings.

      • Michael W said

        Any changes that Microsoft has put Windows 10 Insider program of its official launch will come in a cumulative update on Windows systems that do not belong 10 Insider program. This update also known as Threshold 2 (TH2) will be the first major update to Windows 10 and is likely to be identified as 1511 (15 and 2015 11 = year = November), launch in early November.

        All systems with Windows installed will receive Threshold 10 2, 10 including Windows RTM. Rest assured that although it is a major update will not require a reactivation of the current Windows. And the coolest, who will want to upgrade to Windows 10 after launching the update Threshold by upgrading from Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 can use the key to the old Windows to do the activation after installation, you will not need to initially activate Windows version 7, 8 or 8.1 and then do the upgrade.

        And as it seems natural after installing to the update Threshold Reset option in Windows 10 system will not lead to the first version of Windows after 10 but at the Threshold.

  2. Cristi how I could use the original license Windows 7 directly in installing win 10? (That if I format) or always have to install first win 7 and then to update the win 10? I tried to introduce the license it says that valabila.multumesc not to answer

    • Normally licenses can be used on the operating system with which they came.
      If you upgrade, the license will be maintained. If you do a reinstall, the license will not be accepted. However you can try to make a telephone activation. Contact Microsoft support and can get lucky.

      • Michael W said

        To install the operating system from scratch must follow these steps:

        We must obtain an ISO image of Windows 10.

        After we get the ISO image of Windows 10, a mount or extract
        sailing in the image folder in Windows \ source and look for the file "gatherosstate.exe" that we will copy the desktop.

        run the copied file on your desktop and will get another GenuineTicket.xml file. Exacutabilul running gatherosstate.exe generated XML file, it will copy to a USB stick or in another safe location. For example, the secondary partition, if no such thing. For most, the secondary partition D: \\.

        create a bootable USB stick (I recommend RUFUS) or a DVD, then start installing Windows 10. During installation, you have to skip all the steps when we will be asked to enter the activation key of the operating system (license key).

        After completing the installation of Windows 10, copy the generated XML file in the location C: \\ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ ClipSVC \ GenuineTicket.

        The folder is hidden by default. To access hidden folders, you need to enable Show hidden files, folders and drives in File Explorer. Do this: launch File Explorer / Options / View / Show hidden files, folders and drives in File Explorer.


        If everything went well after restarting the operating system as Windows 10 should be activated.

        • Thank you for the information. That goes for the Enterprise version? I understand that it's legal and they will go and although the updates myself get involved and make them manually if needed, so I do.

  3. It's not 15-30 minutes because then privacy settings, update- here I think it's an average 15-30 minutes = 15-30 hours- I forgot something….? I hope you like the joke, I'm not attacking the tutorial which is very good 🙂

  4. From USB made with that tool can install Windows UEFI mode or in legacy mode?

    • Windows 10 be installed on computers with UEFI normal with Secure Boot enabled.
      Stick that I've done in the tutorial can be used on older computers in Legacy mode.
      PCs and new UEFI laptops, Windows Secure Boot enabled 10 require.
      On old PCs without UEFI, you can install Windows 10 normal without Secure Boot.

      • I installed the PC UEFI secure boot without tutorial on exactly that STIK and went perfectly. I secure boot off default and does not activate the jab to thwart Linux. Without going great and secure boot and install Windows. Now from what I read they let some others go so secure boot to be activated depends very much believe the PC or laptop.

        • It's hard to contain all the BIOS in a sentence and classify them.
          It depends on how each manufacturer makes implementing UEFI / BIOS.
          From my experiences, I have found that Windows installs 10 better UEFI. Also on UEFI, Windows 10 will start more quickly.
          The whole operation depends on.
          What motherboard / laptop you.
          How did the USB stick
          The USB controller you (when installed on USB)

  5. Hi Cristi I tried to install the partitions but it doesn't let me install it gives me this error We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see the Setup log files

  6. I have an old HP Pavilion dv7-4101sl after installing win 10 goes HDMI, drivers have changed nothing
    You think there's a solution

    • Maybe you have to set the display to HDMI.
      Maybe chipset or another controller is not supported in Windows 10.
      Maybe you need to wait, for the manufacturer to come out with a driver.
      Often video driver from your laptop manufacturer is different from Intel, AMD or Nvidia.

  7. A request, if someone wants to tell me ..
    I'm an autodidact. I learned f. Many of these Videotutorial. I asked who the young around me, trained in computers are not generous, altruistic like you.

    I installed Win 7 partition ,, C "and partition ,, D" Win10 want to install. Question: What will happen? Win. 7, he will not lose his license?
    Thank you in advance!

    you have to be honest and say so from the beginning tutorial or even title
    bathrooms folks I'm a smart guy I know perfectly informatics, computer know with eyes closed
    I don't care if my personal data is stolen when I install windows 10 because I install it on a secondary PC…. ok go on
    I do not care if you put the BIOS password if I can throw a laptop looking for the money and I always allow myself a new laptop or pc
    I do not care if I root for your smartphone ez money and I feel like I ever buy another
    DEAR users who visit this site
    no longer taken for granted what you see here
    these guys can afford to spend the tests that you are ok?
    do not install Windows 10 way that has malware in it and Keyloger native and can not be disabled in any way
    NEVER put the password in the bios - this is the biggest nonsense or if you have money it's your job

    • Costelina. Adrian and if you follow Christ and in other tutorials. you saw that says Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista. as spies Microsoft and how can we keep somewhat. and about rootarea phones make it clear that your own risk and says that advantages and disadvantages. and say be careful what you delete and install by root. BIOS password and explain clearly what is good and what are its advantages and disadvantages. Placed precizeza of passwords and denote them somewhere if not keep them. but you Costelina if you put a password and not root notato or if you did and you've fixed your problem bulit telu is not crystal or adrian become. and do not take defense or something. and ii credca not outgo from the house and their sponsors may have to test their products and explain. yes that's not my treba. most forgotten in other tutorials and then throw words like

    • Mr Costelina

      I admit, so far I have told only nonsense.
      That was the idea, from the establishment of the site; I wanted to be a site where everyone find all sorts of crap that implement them, believing they are true tips, which, applying them solve their problems.
      When we started the program, we thought: "How can we fool them?", "What donuts should we sell today?".
      Now that you bluntly, can only take off my hat. You've clue!
      I can't believe this spell went on for so many years…

    • do you think only windows 10 is vulnerable? all have a microsoft entrance gate. but what do we do from now on? don't we use them anymore? everyone defends himself as best he can. as for the fault of the guys from the video tutorial - I think you're making a big mistake.
      as for: "these guys can afford to spend with the tests they do ok?" - the last surveillance camera was given for review in order to advertise the store. cristi said this in the video. I think he gave it back. for my part, I would like to receive as many products for presentation as possible.

      costelini day right, you forgot the password to BIOS and you've found the culprit :))))))))))))))) Where no head woe BIOS password !!!!! !!!!!!! :)))))))))))) And I smell and a failed root / brickuit phone, but do not tell anyone. Man graseli learn!
      PS Cristian, you alone are to blame every time someone from any corner of the world forgets his password from Facebook, Yahoo, Gmail, LinkedIn and all the rest. Only you and your tutorials! Shame on you either !!! :)))))))))))))))))
      PS2 I propose that the next video tutorial be about how to write down these specimens in a notebook. You basically don't need too many "gadgets". A sheet and a pen are enough. Guaranteed to break youtube in two with such a video tutorial. But keep in mind: if you publish this comment I will have proof that I had this brilliant idea and I will ask you for copyright !!!!!!!!!!! :))))))))))))))))

      • Password is not secure ever, if noted on a piece of paper; If you look erasable paper in his pocket, and put clothes washing; Can it take the house fire and burn password.
        The best solutions for keeping your password:
        1. Tattoo with all passwords (can you lose your hand or foot in an accident with sharks or crocodiles)
        2. Password engraving on a piece of steel (and lasting, but keep acid)
        3. Password engraving on a piece of gold (the acid you, but it's too soft)
        4. Tai more trees in a forest, to write password, and when they look, use a drone to see top password (if longer cut any tree, change your password and you can not log in)
        5. May send a crew to plant grass password characters (do not take the pitch month)
        6. Place the stars in the Milky Way to form the password (and others can see)
        7. The best solution; You're a Chinese wall (in Romania), to form password and check your password plane.
        As you can see, the above methods have advantages and disadvantages.
        Choose you one of the methods above, and I'll make a tutorial.

    • Lawrence said

      Hi Valentin. I don't think Windows 10 has anything to do with the latest games, but rather what system you are running them on. I mean video card, processor, memory… Etc. New games also have system requirements 🙂 You can't play 3D if you don't have a fairly new video card, and the video card doesn't want to sit on any motherboard :)) you understand. All the best. Beautiful days 🙂

I understand I have to delete both partitions to install wind10, but I do not want to lose the data in D. I specify that I have bootable stick with wind10 enabled. Is there a solution?

  50. i changed hhd in ssd samsung, i used the samsung program and the computer does not see me ssdul. the computer does not open anymore. Was it okay that the windows on the computer were older. I wanted to delete all again from ssd and make clone with easy to todo program and no longer recognize my ssd says it is the system does not support MBR disk in GPT and vice versa

    • So: you put an SSD beside the HHD stuff on a PC. That program from Samsung does not understand why you used it, I think you complicated things. If you did not see your SSD what you wanted to remove from the SSD, so did you still install something on it? Why clone? It would be nice to install Windows to be clean, especially on an SSD, you still have to format it, and when you install Windows, you can get into the Windows-based partitions, format them, and you will only have that Windows on your SSD . And the SSD is formatted in NTFS. It was not complicated at all, I did exactly as I wrote you above. I hope you can.

  51. hello I looked at you, but win10 still makes head to head with its modifications

  52. I apologize, I may ask a "naive" question, but when do we use the "Format" operation to create partitions?
    Only "Delete" was used in the tutorial.
