Reinstalling windows 10

@andy_65_in 

 

You can do 2 ways:

 

(a)

 

Since your machine previously ran Windows 10, you can do a clean install W10 for free by using the media creation tool at the link below.


https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10


The tool will allow you to make a bootable installation media (USB/DVD) and you can use installation media to install.

During the installation process if you are asked to enter a product key, check the 'Skip' box and W10 will install and then automatically activate once you are connected to the internet using the key embedded in BIOS of your machine.


You can also mount downloaded ISO file as DVD drive and run Setup from there.


Then you can install the drivers and available software you need from your PC's support page. Normally few Windows 10 updates can install nearly all drivers for you.

 

OR 

 

  (b) using Cloud Recovery tool
