How to Install Windows 10 on My Laptop

A guide to installing windows 10 x86 & Windows 10 x32 bit

How to Install Windows 10 on My Laptop – First of all, we need to obtain a version of Microsoft Windows 10 x86

Perhaps you might have a copy of the windows 10 x86 on a bootable USB pen or even on DVD if you don’t ill tell you where to get a copy from and it’s simple.

Microsoft has a downloadable ISO available for download, although this version does require a product key for activation.

This link below gives you the capability to download both the 64bit version (x64) and the 32bit (x86) versions of Windows 10.

Yes, this version is entirely legal versions, clearly free of being tampered or modified and 100% don’t contain any viruses, malware or spyware, obviously as its from the Microsoft website.

THIS VERSION DOES REQUIRE A PRODUCT KEY

If you already have a product key, then this can either be entered during installation. Although I preferably input a product key for activation post-installation.

Starting the Install of windows

If you have just downloaded Windows 10 x86 from the Microsoft website, you either need to create a Windows 10 Bootable USB Media or Burn the ISO to a DVD.

Booting to Windows 10 x86 Media

Now we need to boot to that media. As the number of Laptop, PC and other devices are that vast, and some manufacturers have different ways to boot to external media sources, I have created another guide to explain how to boot to External Media such as USB Devices or DVD Drives.

The link below will explain in more detail.

Although generically most PC’s and laptops have an option to Choose a boot device by pressing f12 function key just as you turn your PC or laptop on so perhaps we will be lucky on this occasion. How to Install Windows 10
