So those are some things that make computer users prefer to use Windows 10 as their PC’s operating system compared to the current version. For those of you who want to install Windows 10 correctly and easily but don’t know how to do it, then please follow the steps below that I have prepared.
1. Important Data Backup Before Installing Windows 10
In the process of installing Windows 10, this will make the data on the computer device will be lost. so the freeware driver recommends doing backups of data that feel important before reinstalling. Especially if you have documents related to your business or current job. A way to be able to be made to store data that has been backed up by an external hard disk, flash drive, or cloud storage like Google Drive.
2. Prepare The Installation File Windows 10
After your files are backed up, then the next step you have to do is prepare the file for the Windows 10 installation process. This file can be obtained on DVD when purchasing a Windows 10 License or you can download the file through the official Microsoft website. Then make Windows 10 bootable using a flash.
Here we have posted a tutorial to make a bootable with a Windows 10 flash disk, you can read it in how to make a bootable Windows 10 with a flash.
3. Set Boot Priority
When the installation file is ready, then the next process is to insert the DVD into the DVD room or flash disk to a PC that will install Windows 10.
Then restart the computer and enter the BIOS and change the boot priority to the DVD room or flash disk that contains the Windows 10 installation file.
When the boot priority has been changed, it’s time to exit the BIOS to restart the computer and continue to the next process.
Attention: When the screen displays the message “press any key to continue”, then press any key on the keyboard to continue.
4. Installation Process
When the computer is on, select the language that you will use later. In addition to choosing a language, also select the time and currency format, and select the keyboard input as desired.
Then press Next to proceed to the next process. Then click the “Install now” button as shown below.
Then you will be asked to enter a Windows 10 license. If you already have a license, then just enter it in the column provided and click “Next”.
If you don’t have a license, then just click “I don’t have a product key”.
There will be 2 choices for installation types, upgrade, and custom. For the clean install process, select Custom.
Then proceed to the next step, make sense to say that this step is quite complicated if you want multiple partitions or hard drives.
At this stage, you must delete the main and system partitions on your computer’s hard disk.
When all partitions have been deleted, we next go to the process of creating a new partition by clicking “Unallocated space” and clicking “New”.
Then click “Apply” like the picture below.
When the new partition is created, the next process of installing Windows 10 is to select the “Primary” drive and then click “Next”.
Then the Windows 10 installation process will begin, just wait until the Windows Setup process is complete.
Attention: It is recommended to unplug the Flashdisk or remove the DVD from the DVD room before installation until it reaches the “Finishing up” stage. Why? To prevent the computer from repeating the Windows 10 installation process from the start when restarting.
When the Windows Setup process is complete, then restart your computer by clicking “Restart Now”.
5. Configure Windows 10
If the computer has rebooted, the next process is to do some configuration settings in Windows 10. Select “Use Express Settings” if you want to use the default configuration from Microsoft.
Wait until the process is complete, usually only briefly.
6. Create a Windows 10 Account
And wait a few moments until the configuration process is finished.
And finished, you have successfully installed Windows 10 on the computer. The computer is ready to use.
7. Activation Process

8. Reset Boot Priority

The method is the same as stage 3, you just need to restore boot priority to the internal hard disk where Windows 10 is installed.
