Windows 10: Best way to clean install windows 10
Best way to clean install windows 10
Yes, I've read many articles, but what do you think is the best way?
There are only two ways to clean install - boot from a usb drive or dvd.
Do you mean it's final destination when installed ie on a separate drive, partition, virtual hard drive etc.
Here's a good method to use to clean install Windows 10 if you like.
Quote: "Before you get started installing Windows 10, be sure that you temporarily disable Secure Boot and Fast Boot in your UEFI firmware settings until finished. Some motherboards do not support booting from a USB flash drive with these enabled. "
Is it really necessary?
It is if you want the installation to be successful. You can enable them again after the installation has finished though.
Not possible to really answer as the statement does say "some" i.e. it is conditional!
So if your mobo does not support them then yes, otherwise no.
You can try without of course first if you do not know.
It's basically USB or CD recognition, right?
I would recommend using a USB flash drive if clean installing Windows 10 with UEFI.
So ultimately, enable or disable?
