Setting up the computer to start the installation.
Every time we turn on the computer, it starts loading the installed operating system. It is usually loaded on the hard drive. Consequently, the system is predefined to boot from this device. However, in order to start the installation of Windows 10, it is imperative that the system is booted from the USB. Depending on the manufacturer, it will be necessary to enter the BIOS or UEFI to set this option. Also, some computers set to press a key to select a temporary boot medium. Please consult the manufacturer’s documentation to be sure.
Once the system starts loading, you must press any key to start the installation.
Preparing the installation of Windows 10
After a few seconds of loading, you will see the installation welcome screen. Once there, you must select the language to install, the currency and time format and the keyboard to use.
On the next screen please click on install now.
The wizard allows you to enter the product key at once. If not, you can continue the installation and activate the product later.
Now it is time to select the edition of Windows 10 to be installed.
Please accept the license.
Microsoft allows you to upgrade to a computer that is running some Windows system. But in this case, we will make a clean installation. With this in mind, select the option to Install Windows only. Please note that this will remove any files or apps you have installed. Go ahead and check these options for backing up in Windows 10.
Selecting the partition to install Windows 10
The wizard then displays the list of disks and partitions present on the computer. Consequently, a wide range of options is possible. For example, create, delete, extend or format partitions. However, in this example we will use the entire hard disk.
Installing Windows 10 on the selected partition
After selecting the partition, the operating system installation process will begin. This process will take a few minutes and will depend on the speed of the computer. In addition, the computer will reboot one or more times. Don’t worry, this is perfectly normal.
After a few moments, the assistant will start to start the services and prepare the devices.
After a few minutes the configuration of Cortana will begin. This is the virtual assistant that Microsoft introduces to Windows systems.
Now it’s time to set the region and type of keyboard for Windows. Optionally you can add a second keyboard layout.
In the next screen you must establish if you will use the system for personal or organizational use. This time we will use a personal account
Then enter your outlook account and password.
Optionally you can create a 4 digit pin to authenticate
The wizard offers to configure the feature your phone. At the moment, skip this option.
Now please set the location to save the files. By default, Windows will set OneDrive as the save method. However, I recommend that you start saving the files to the computer.
Finally, set general privacy options. You can calmly examine them one by one or go ahead. Since these options can be modified later.
After a few minutes, Windows will be ready for use.
