    Need an iso for windows 10


    I am in desperate need of an iso for windows 10. The link to the download I cannot use as it has to be a bootable iso. As my laptop has fizzeled and I cannot get into anything other than bios. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Windows 7 (reverted back)

    You can order an DVD on-line with Microsoft
    you can ask one of your friends to use the Media Creation Tool and create a bootable drive

    Other options I would not know at this moment, Good luck

    Use this official Microsoft link to download Windows 10 .iso version of your choice : Tech Bench

    After downloading the .iso file, use "Rufus" tool to create bootable USB disk of Windows 10 with .iso file. You cannot upgrade your old operating system (windows 7, 8.1) to windows 10, until you have access to a working operating system. So you will need to fresh install Windows 10.

    "Its not working"

    What do you mean by its not working? Have you got any errors?

    I personally had disaster by working with Media Creation Tool which caused me too much trouble + Bandwidth usage. You can see this topic. I was facing alot of problems but when i downloaded .iso from that link i upgraded my laptop successfully without even a hassle.

    Dear WindowsUser,

    I have a laptop with windows 7 installed. I can't update to windows 10 directly as I use Internet with proxy authentication usernameassword.

    So saw your answer regarding installing freshly using rufus. While I do so will it directly take license or does it ask it later?

    Thanks and Regardrs

    If you do a fresh you will need to pay for windows
    it is only free if you do an upgrade (after which you can do a fresh install if you require)

    @patilkk, mate you will need to upgrade your Windows 7 to Windows 10 at very first (if you want to take advantage of the free upgrade for Windows 10). Because when you upgrade your previous activated windows to Windows 10. It saves your Computer/Machine related information on Microsoft Servers that you activated Windows 10 via free upgrading. Once you successfully upgrade your windows 7 to Windows 10 and activate it. You can re-install fresh Windows 10 if you want, it will get activated online without any problem.

    If you perform a clean/fresh install of Windows 10, instead of upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 10 at first. Then you may stuck with an un-activated Windows 10.
