    Starting with Windows 10 build 15002, the Windows Out-Of-Box-Experience (OOBE) Team has been working to reimagine how people set up their PCs for the first time. Their goal is to make this simpler and more accessible so every person powering on their new PC can independently set it up. While they have made numerous improvements in past releases to achieve this goal, they now want to take it to the next level where people can listen and respond to Cortana verbally (when asked questions*) to further simplify and make the setup process more accessible to even more people.

    This new experience is still a work in progress, so there are some places that still include the older OOBE pages and Cortana is unable to help you get your PC fully set up. We plan to continue to do more work on this so stay tuned! While you can’t access the Feedback Hub during OOBE, please take a moment once you’ve reached the desktop to complete the Quest and log feedback in the Feedback Hub.

    *Works for languages that support Cortana. For languages that don’t support Cortana, you will still get the new experience without the speech capabilities.



    Starting with Windows 10 build 15019, the Windows Out-Of-Box-Experience (OOBE) Team brings even more improvements to make setting up a PC more inclusive.
    • Privacy: The new privacy settings in the set up experience (OOBE) are now included in this build.
    • Wi-Fi Captive Portal: The Wi-Fi connectivity experience in OOBE has been updated to support “captive portal” Wi-Fi networks. When connecting to such a Wi-Fi hotspot, OOBE will navigate to a lightweight browser experience allowing you to complete the connection and reach the internet. We’ve also included some updates allowing you to configure some basic properties for the Wi-Fi network during OOBE.
    • MSA Sign-in/Sign-up: The Microsoft Account (MSA) Sign-in and Sign-up flows in OOBE are now updated to the new design for the Windows 10 Creators Update. Users will see that these experiences are paginated and simplified will help in reducing the overall cognitive load and in improving accessibility in the MSA sign-in/sign-up experiences.
    • Windows Hello enrollment: Users can now enroll into Windows Hello using the new design implementation for the Windows 10 Creators Update with Cortana voiceover and support for speech input.
    • Updated voice: The audio track in this build is recorded by voice actors, so it is much friendlier and the intonations are better too (compared to the synthetic voice track we had in Build 15002).
    • Subtitles: The primary purpose behind this redesign of OOBE is to be inclusive and improve accessibility. This build supports subtitles to ensure that our deaf/hard of hearing users are also included in the new Cortana voiced OOBE.
    • Bug fixes and visual polish: This build also has improvements for visual polish and a good number of bug fixes which help in overall stability.

    The table at the Microsoft site below lists the most common upgrade and installation errors, and a few things you can try to fix the problems.

    warning   Warning
    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.

    Once installation has finished, you can enable Secure Boot and Fast Boot again if you like.


    Here's How:

    1. If you have not already, you will need to create a bootable Windows 10 installation USB.

    2. Temporarily disconnect all non OS hard drives until Windows installation has finished. This is to avoid Windows Setup from installing files on other hard drives by mistake.

    3. Boot from the USB flash drive on your computer.

    4. If you have installation media that is for both 32-bit and 64-bit from the Media Creation Tool, then select Windows 10 Setup (64-bit) or Windows 10 Setup (32-bit) for what you want to install with, and press Enter. (see screenshot below)

    7. Enter your Windows 10 product key to activate Windows 10 with, and click/tap on Next. (see screenshot below)
    Note   Note
    If you do not have a product key available right now, then you can click/tap on the I don't have a product key link to be able to manually activate Windows 10 later when you do have a product key or wanted to activate with your linked Microsoft account.

    You will not be asked to enter a product key in Windows 10 Enterprise. You will need to activate later after installation has finished.


    If you took advantage of the free Windows 10 offer, then you can enter the Windows 7 or Windows 8 product key that you upgraded to Windows 10 from.

    If you have a digital license linked to your Microsoft account for this PC, then you may not be prompted to enter a product key.

    If this OEM PC has a valid product key embedded in its UEFI firmware chip, then you will not be prompted to enter a product key.

    Starting in Windows 10 Insider Preview build 10565:

    Device activation improvements: Microsoft has received a lot of feedback from Insiders on making it easier to activate Windows 10 on devices that take advantage of the free upgrade offer to genuine Windows by using existing Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 product keys. If you install this build of the Windows 10 Insider Preview on a PC and it doesn’t automatically activate, you can enter the product key from Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 used to activate the prior Windows version on the same device to activate Windows 10 by going to Settings > Update & security > Activation and selecting Change Product Key. If you do a clean install of Windows 10 by booting off the media, you can also enter the product key from prior Windows versions on qualifying devices during setup. Refer to the Insider Hub for more information on these activation improvements including requirements.

    11. Do step 12 (legacy BIOS) or step 13 (UEFI) below depending on if you are installing with or without UEFI.


     12. If Installing Windows 10 with Legacy BIOS

    A) Select the hard drive or partition that you want to install Windows 10 on, and click/tap on the Drive Options (advanced) link.

    Note   Note
    If the hard drive or partition that you have selected is shown as unallocated, then you can just click/tap on the Next button and go directly to step 12B below instead since it is already empty.


    B) Select a hard drive or partition that you want to do a clean install of Windows 10 on, do one of the options in the yellow TIP box below for how you want to install Windows to this drive or partition, click/tap on the Next button when finished, and go to step 14 below. (see screenshot below)

    NOTE: If your hard drive is not displayed and it's either a SATA drive or in a RAID setup, then you need to connect a USB key or DVD disc with the RAID or SATA drivers on it, click on Load Driver, select the folder on the USB key or DVD that contains the RAID or SATA drivers to install them. Afterwards, your RAID drives will be available to select from to install Windows on.

    Tip   Tip
    Drive options (advanced)

    If you only have one partition for a Drive # (hard drive) listed that you wanted to install Windows on, then select the disk # and click on the Delete option if not grayed out to make it unallocated space.

    If you have more than one partition for a Drive # (hard drive) listed and want to install Windows on only one of the partitions and keep the other partitions with that disk #, then only select the partition that you want to install Windows on the Format option.

    If you have more than one partition for a Drive # (hard drive) listed and want to get rid of all of them to make that disk # one single partition drive again, then select a partition with that disk # and click on the Delete option for each partition with the same Drive # until there is only one "unallocated space" with that Drive # left as in the screenshot below.

    To shrink an existing partition to create another partition to install Windows on instead, select the partition that you want to shrink and click on the Extend option. Type in how much in MB (1 GB = 1024 MB) that you want to shrink it by. Now select the new extended partition.

    Note   Note
    The 450 MB (UEFI-GPT) or 500 MB (Legacy BIOS-MBR) System Reserved partition is used for the Boot Manager code, BCD (Boot Configuration Database), System Recovery Options (Windows RE), and start up files for BitLocker (if turned on).

    If you want to have (recommended) the 450 MB (UEFI-GPT) or 500 MB (Legacy BIOS-MBR) System Reserved partition in addition to the Windows C: partition on a HDD or SSD after installation, then you would need to make sure that all partitions on the drive have been deleted until it is only unallocated space. Next, select the unallocated drive to install Windows on. If there are no partitions on the disk, you will get the System Reserved partition.

    If you do not want to have the 450 MB (UEFI-GPT) or 500 MB (Legacy BIOS-MBR) System Reserved partition and only the Windows C: partition on a HDD or SSD after installation, then select a formatted partition or drive to install Windows on. If there are any partitions on the disk, you won't get the System Reserved partition.

     13. If Installing Windows 10 with UEFI

    Note   Note
    Your motherboard must support UEFI 2.0 or later to be able to install 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10 with UEFI.


    A) Delete all partitions/volumes on the Drive # (ex: Drive 0) that you want to install Windows 10 with UEFI on until that Drive # shows as unallocated space. (see screenshot below)

    B) When you are finished, click/tap on Next, and go to step 14 below. (see screenshot above)
    Note   Note
    If you receive a "Windows can't be installed on drive 0" warning, you will still be able to as long as you can click/tap on the Next button.


    Windows Setup will automatically create the 4 partitions below on the drive, and install Windows 10 on the primary partition.
    • Partition 1 - Recovery
    • Partition 2 - System - The EFI System partition that contains the NTLDR, HAL, Boot.txt, and other files that are needed to boot the system, such as drivers.
    • Partition 3 - MSR - The Microsoft Reserved (MSR) partition that reserves space on each disk drive for subsequent use by operating system software.
    • Partition 4 - Primary - Where Windows is to be installed to.

     21. To Set Up Windows 10 with a Microsoft Account (MSA)

    Note   Note
    Microsoft account:
    • You use your email address and password to sign in to Windows.
    • When you sign in with a Microsoft account, your PC is connected to the cloud.
    • Your friends’ contact info and statuses are automatically up to date from your Hotmail, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other accounts.
    • You can get to and share your photos, documents, and other files from OneDrive, Facebook, Flickr, and other accounts without signing in to each one.
    • Your personal settings are synced to any PC running Windows 8 and Windows 10 that you sign in to, including your themes, language preferences, browser favorites, and apps.
    • You can get apps in the Windows Store and use them on any PC running Windows 8 and Windows 10 that you sign in to.
    • Easily reacquire your modern Store apps on multiple Windows 8 and Windows 10 PCs. The app’s settings and last-used state persist across all your Windows 8 and Windows 10 PCs.
    • You can associate the most commonly used Windows settings to your user account. In this way, the saved settings are available when you sign in to your account on any Windows 8 and Windows 10 PC. So your PC will be set up just the way you are used to.
    • You can also save time with sign-in credentials, because now the same credentials are available for the different apps and websites you use and you can easily get back into them without having to enter credentials every time.
    • You can automatically sign in to apps and services that use Windows Live ID for authentication.


    A) Type in the email address, phone number, or Skype name you have registered for your Microsoft account, and click/tap on Next. (see screenshot below)

    Hello Kevin,

    I'm afraid not. It still wouldn't be bootable just copying it. Using Rufus from step 2 would be a good easy option to create the USB with the ISO if you like.
