    Fresh install of Win 10


    I have an 2014 vintage ASUS Transformer that I would like to wipe clean and buy/install Windows 10. The problem is the original Win 8.1 install seems to be corrupt. It will not update, and if I try to refresh or reinstall, it wants the installation media, which I do not have. I remember last year I found a way to reinstall Windows using some online thing I must have signed up for when I activated the computer. In any case, all attempts to update/upgrade this gut have failed. How to I totally wipe it's brain and install Windows 10 (I think it can only do 32 bit, but not sure). Thanx.

    I'm reasonably sure you don't have to buy Windows 10.

    Standard method is to use Microsoft Media Creation Tool to construct a USB installer. Tutorials on this site.

    I have no idea what an Asus Transformer is---it may not support Windows 10 or may be defective in some way.

    Just follow this tutorial.

    No need to buy W10, you own 8.1 and the key is likely in BIOS.

    I would get 64 bit when you get to that panel in the download process as I'm very sure you have 64 bit. If you start Symtem Information app it will tell you.

    You've not stated the exact model, but consider this: it may be relevant:
    SOLVED: How to Install Windows 10 On An Asus T100 Transformer – Up & Running Technologies, Tech How To's

    I recommend you research similar results finding one relevant to your case. There seem to be some useful results.
    (I searched for
    ASUS Transformer "windows 10"
    )

    If your storage is as small as that the 32 bit version would have a smaller footprint.

    Consider the drivers available- were they ever provided for a 64 bit O/S? Have a look at your manufacturer's site.

    We need more information about the Asus Transformer.
    How much memory it has?
    How big is the internal drive?
