    I Need more help before I am game to start this Clean Install please


    20H2 (OS Build - 19042.746

    Good afternoon, me still "trying to do a clean install,
    This Clean Install has me "hiding under the bedĒ Just when I think Iím right to Launch" something else allways crops up!

    If I'ts may? I'll list the other Questions here? I have been at this for a month and the PC has is nearly "expired"

    There are 2 Windows 10 Upgrade's that I have put on hold (for another 2 days)
    KB5000802 30-Mar-2021 Security Update for Windows 10 (KB5000802)
    KB5000858 27-Mar-2021 Security Update for Windows 10 (KB5000858)

    What do I do about these Drivers packages DELL keep Emailing me to download?...... I donít know if I should download and back them up to my Ex HDD until after I run my Bootable USB, If I install them before then do the Clean Install they will be deletedí should I see what drivers the Windows Clean Install brings first

    I have all the current old Drivers listed and Backed-up on the Ex HDD [F;] F, G, H, I

    I'm using the OSK' which does not become active in time to push (F12) before the DELL screen during the Clean Install boot-up ? My keyboard quit stopped weeks ago and I have tokeep re-starting Windows explorer in Task Manager because 8 or 9 Mozilla FF tabs build up without refreshing and screen goes to blankand I have no Desktop icon's or anything

    I donít know if I even if I have to close Secure Boot before doing the Clean Install first see Belarc Log Re Boot Mode: "UEFI with successful Secure Boot, (in Word doc Attachment) If I do have to venture there is there a tutorial describing how to ?
    thanks again Kind regards Dasha

    If you are doing a clean install is the Windows setup on a flash drive or DVD?

    Can you get into the BIOS and select the drive to boot to?

    If you are doing a clean install then your C: drive will be erased. There is no need to worry about updates until after the installation is done.

    I'd be sure I had the NIC (Ethernet) driver on hand before attempting a clean install. From Dell presumably.

    There's a very very good chance Windows will supply it during the install, but you'd certainly need it to get online if you have issues.

    I wouldn't be particularly concerned with other drivers until after the installation. Windows supplies a lot of drivers. Just be sure all your hardware works as expected. If not, maybe look for different drivers. With any luck you won't need to specifically search for them.

    The problem is definitely going to be the lack of a working physical keyboard to do the clean install. I would get a cheap USB keyboard.

    Replying to NavyLCDR,
    As I surmised it's a Computer issue "not the keyboard s, if I Tap on a Key' whatever is on the screen a either a Word doc or Browser, light's up and appear's as "Dark Mode" for a second

    If I Tap and hold the key' down for a few seconds the same happens. But it will type that key?
    so being unable to get into "Device manager or Disc Manager, even from, File - Run New Task it comes up
    "Windows cannot find Device or Disc, make sure you typed the name correctly

    So if it's a Driver I can only hope that when I Boot-up during the USB Clean Install that those Driver's will have been installed as part of the process if that fail's I will be "resourcing a very Large paddle' Thank's for your help
