    Trying to clean install my PC after changing hardware


    I've just upgraded my CPU and motherboard (Intel to AMD) and I've been trying to do a clean install of Windows so that I can prevent any issues but the Reset my PC option doesn't work. Whenever I try, it just ends up with a message saying "could not reset pc. No changes were made". I am using Windows 10 Education that I got for free through my school if that helps. The windows refresh tool does not work either.

    If you want to do a clean install, you need to boot the computer from a Windows 10 installation USB flash drive or DVD. Select the custom install option. Delete the partitions that are there now (you can save any data partitions if you have them). Then select the unallocated space to install to.
