How to Install Windows 10 From A USB Drive?

Have you persuaded yourself to install or reinstall Windows 10 on your PC, only to discover that there is no CD/DVD reader in which to place the Windows 10 disc, or, even worse, that you do not have the Operating System and have no idea how to obtain it? Given the circumstances, the best solution is to create a bootable USB stick (also known as bootable) that contains the Operating System. However, not everyone is aware of how to install Windows 10 from a USB stick, which is why we’ve decided to write this guide to walk you through each step.

There are absolutely no contraindications in carrying out this operation. The only difference is that the installation of Windows from a USB stick is much faster than that made from the CD / DVD drive.

How to Install Windows 10 From A USB Stick?

The first thing you need to do is download Windows 10 ISO image file. To do this, you need to download the media creation tool from the official website by clicking on ” Download the tool now “. For more information read this article, we explain step by step the operations to follow.

After downloading the software, plug in the USB stick and accept the terms and conditions of the software. Then you have to select the option: Create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) for another PC, select the language, architecture, edition, click on next and choose the option: USB flash drive.

Then select the USB media from the proposed list and click on next so as to burn the file on the USB stick without necessarily having to burn Windows with third-party programs such as Rufus.

At the end of the operation, you will finally have Windows 10 available on the USB stick. Now all you have to do is restart the PC, enter the BIOS, change the boot order by setting the USB key in the first place and finally save everything with F10 so as to start the Windows setup.

The Bottom Line

We recommend the first solution for a simple reason: It will be sufficient to purchase the license only once it has not expired. We do not recommend the use of pirated software such as KMS if you do not want to jeopardize the security and stability of the entire system. These programs can contain viruses and malware inside them that once executed can take full access to personal data, bank accounts and much more.
