    How do i reinstall Windows 10?

    How do i wipe the drive or install a fresh copy of Windows 10 again, i will be selling the pc in 2 days and i need an answer asap since i have tried everything.
    Media Creation Tool wont even turn on, i get a message saying.

    "there was a problem starting setup close the tool restart your pc and then try running the tool again"

    Ive tried the refresh windows 10 tool as well, i get the same message.
    I went to settings, update and security and then under recovery i press "REST THIS PC" "get started"
    but nothing loads.

    I need to remove all my data on this hard drive soon because i dont want to sell this pc to someone with all my private files and stuff xD

    Get an Iso file from here if the MS site isn`t working for you.

    Microsoft Windows 10 Anniversary Update ISO 1607 Download Windows ISO

    Burn the Iso file to dvd or create a usb stick installer with Rufus

    Clean Install Windows 10
