Windows 10: Clean Install Windows 10
The MSR partition is hidden in Windows 10 disk management. You have to use a third party partition program like MiniTool Partition Wizard to see it.
Ahhh, yes I see it now with Acronis DD.
Hello Shawn mate I just followed the clean install without having upgrade and it didn't run that way so I went to clean install instead.
I put in the ISO and about five screens later (it didn't follow the screens in the tutorial as such) the machine was downloading files etc I used the customise window and in less than ten minutes the OS id installed. It is telling it is activated and I have all the drivers on the system and usually one has to install stuff like wifi drivers etc to get the net.
It seems almost freakish the way it did it and I am just guessing here that because the machine was a downgrade to 7 Pro originally that it had an activation code set up??
Now I have done this just for an experiment and on a new drive and will this mean that if I flip my 7 drive back in it will work because it all seemed to easy??
What was different from the tutorial steps compared to what you seen?
There were bits that did not show up like the black screen with the choice on it for example just little stuff but after the dual boot was set up the main laptop sent my Kaspersky into some kind of super suspicious mode from the 7 partition.
On the small laptop I am having little crashes now and then and even it setting it off on a chkdsk?? It is super sloqw too but I suppose it could be the spinner in it..
If you mean the black screen like the screenshot under step 4, then that will only be available if you boot from installation media that was created for both 32-bit and 64-bit.
I'm a little late to the party, but have successfully USB Clean installed W10 Home (from W7) on my 2010 older MSI U Light notebook!
Tutorials were a great help!
Actually seems faster...No turning back now!
Great Job !!! You will love it I'm sure, may take a little time learning some things. Congratulation's galaxys!!!
Havetried three installs of 10 today and used three different sources of ISO -one I even downloaded fresh this afternoon and even tried it on a stick.
Nowthe original 7 install on the main machine was the Pro version andyet I still get the Home version being installed and any attempt atactivating the install with my 7 key fails.
Sohas the ISO been changedtoone of only the Home version.
Ihave to say the other machines I installed 10 on ran 10 Pro eventhough one was 7 Pro originally the other Home 7. The other thing is that thosetwo machines were originally upgrades - would that have any bearingon my main laptop not installing the 10 Pro?? If so I will install abare bones 7 Pro and upgrade it if that is what it is going to taketo allow the Pro 10 to be installed.
NBDuring the install fromthe disk/s and the stick ISO's I did not get the Here’show steps
Theinstall steps went straight from No1 to 3 then to 5to 6 then to 9
Ieven tried the gatherro method in the tutorial how to clean installwithout updating but it made no difference.
AmI doing something wrong or has the Pro version been discontinued –I just don’t know what to do next.
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...
