    About "clean install"


    Windows 10 has a recovery option, comprising of two choices. I know the differences among them, so, yeah.

    My question is: what's the difference(s) between a bootable disc and recovery?

    No difference or lots of differences. A bootable disc enables starting the computer from that disc which may hold files that allow running a recovery process.
