How to Install Windows 10 OS Without Any Problems – Clean Installation

Yesterday (October 1st), Microsoft officially released the beta version of Windows 10 which is named as Windows 10 technical preview. As soon as they released the beta version, I had the itch to record a YouTube video, about installing Windows 10 OS and First look of Windows 10. I had already recorded that video soon I will upload it to YouTube. Keep subscribed to our YouTube Channel.

As soon as I got this in my mind, directly I registered for the Windows Insider Program which is compulsory to download the Windows 10 technical preview. I tried to download the Windows 10 Beta version, because of my slow internet connection it took more than 10 hours to download. Anyway, finally I managed to successfully download the OS without any corruption. I am telling you this because if you want to install Windows 10 preview then you’ll have to do the same thing. Let’s go to the point straightly.

If you want to test Windows 10 in Your laptop then first you need to download Windows 10 OS. Use the below link to download Windows technical preview.

Minimum Requirements to install Windows 10

  • As per official Microsoft information, you can install Windows 10 on any PC that supports Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
  • Generally, your laptop should have 4GB RAM and 1.5 GHz processing speed and everything else will be fine if you have a laptop with these specs or better specifications.

I hope now you’re ready with your bootable Pendrive/DVD. First Restart or Shutdown your PC and Insert Pendrive into anyone of the USB ports. Now, while starting your PC every time you’ll find two or one small notes at the bottom of the screen that are saying

  • ” Press F10/F2 or to Enter setup” or Just like >> ” F2 Setup “
  • ” Press F12/F8 for Boot Options” or simply ” >> ” F12 Boot options”

You’ll see some thing like this whenever you turn on your PC. press that button.

The button may be different for different manufacturers for example it is F12 for DELL. You need to press the button which is saying

  • >> BOOT OPTIONS OR BOOT MENU and press that button quickly(in my case it is F12) as soon as you start the system. You should press the button while you are seeing that screen. In case, if you missed it again shutdown and insert Pendrive and turn on your PC and press the correct button.
  • After selecting boot options you will see the list all available bootable devices select USB STORAGE OR DVD. (whatever you are going to use)
