Windows 10: Clean Install Windows 10
Shawn et al - I feel like I'm going in circles - do I understand right there is no iso for 10049 directly? so no really 'clean install' ?
There's currently no official 10049 ISO available, but you could create an ISO after updating to 10049 though.
ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File - Windows 10 Forums
sheesh, so the answer is 'not really' .. and why/how did I get 9926 when I logged in to insider and picked the download page?
had to go "dark" to find the 10041... may as well for 10049.. [I didn't say that!]
If you wanted to wait, the 10049 ISO will be available to download when it's available to update on the slow release probably next week sometime.
I have two diff systems I'm working with, one laptop on Fast ring, one Desktop on slow.

What was the error message? There are 2 fairly common reasons - not enough free disk space and running update as a non-administrator account...
finally got back to that one: 0xc000021a
account is admin. only one account on the sys.
EDIT: well well well - rebooted and voila'
10049 is installed and coherent
When I clean install Windows 10, and I have done this multiple times using the most current version, the menu where you turn features on, before you pick your computer username, displays twice. The 1st time you do it, it goes as far right before...
Yesterday, I did a clean install of build 10162, and during the install, I was prompted to insert my key. I clicked skip, and now if I go to "Activation", it says "Windows is not activated". I tried this and it did not work. What should I do ?
Hope this has not been asked before.
I have the Windows 7 disc which I purchased and since then have upgraded to Windows 8 & 8.1 via the Windows Store.
When Windows 10 is released I'd like to do a fresh install. Does anyone know if this will...
I know this isn't the EightForums but I've not logged on there for some time now.
I need to clean install Windows 8.1 and having trouble finding an up-to-date guide. At the beginning of this year I followed this guide which worked nicely but it...
