  1. Automated Windows 10 clean install using USB for multiple units, how to get started?


    Hi Reddit,

    I work in a workplace where we clean install and update windows 10 home machines on a daily basis as a service for our costumers.

    As of the moment, we manually install pc's using the windows tool with usb-sticks but this is a time consuming process for time we don't really have. Unpacking the physical pc's takes enough time as is and the windows setup, including entering boot menu, partioning and going through all the setup questions is a pain in the rear to say the least. After the install is complete we manually have to enter our Wifi and manually make windows update search for updates for the necessary drivers and install a couple of applications like Chrome, PDF reader etc.

    We basically set up every PC in almost the same way and I know that there is some way to automate this entire process using stuff like unattend.xml, however I have no prior knowledge on how to make this a real thing to use in our process and also make it partition, go though install, make a user account called "User" with no password and connect to wifi and search for and install updates, rebooting when done by itself.

    I'm looking for help to push me into the right direction. I've been googling for hours but what I find is mostly painstakingly long and complicated tutorials for something that someone probably already has a script for, or a very easy way to show how.

    Thanks!

    TL;DR: Looking for an automated Win 10 Home installer (script?) doing partitioning, setup process, local user account without a password, connecting to wifi and automatically updating by itself and installing a couple programs by itself since we install manually today taking a lot of time from us on our workplace where we have this as a service for our costumers.

  3. Windows 10 USB boot

    Hi there, am not a windows 10 expert. I have a pc in the bedroom on windows 10, I messed up the bootloader trying to fix the xp on that system.

    System wont boot, trying to repair via win 10 usb installer.

    Downloaded the media creation tool to install windows 10 installer on usb stick. Not compatible with a host of usb sticks I have. Tried the usb sticks that others use, but I think they use rufus; as the media creation tool by win 10 does not detect the usb stick.

    So quick question, the win10 machine i am trying to repair the bootloader is a win7 upgraded to win10.
    If i were to use the usb win10 installer to "repair installation" does the version of the iso downloaded via the media creation tool matter?

    There is three options:
    Windows 10
    Windows 10 Home
    Windows 10 N

    Also is there a step by step instead of using rufus as I want to try an alternative method of creating a usb win 10 installer. Preferably with more compatibility.

    System is a asus sabertooth 990 (r2?) with AMD phenom X 6.

    Also is there any other software I can load onto the usb that can repair the bootloader easily?
    That would be the ideal alternative. Thanks
