  1. Clean install win 10 Pro


    Hello,

    I'm not a power user or well practiced on or in computing.
    I have a Lenovo E570 laptop with Win 10Pro V1903

    It has two SSD's. I'd like to clean install a new copy of Win 10 Pro.

    I've got both drives backed up on an external drive.

    When it comes time to restore (or reinstall) all the data by question is: Is the external drive going to put the
    Same data back to the same drives ? or am I going to have to tell it some how where to put what ?

    Oscar. .

    :)

  2. Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    I have bought a legit "Windows 10 Pro" key of a key website. It is legit since i'm currently using it for over a year now. I currently have Windows 10 Pro installed on my PC and I want to do a clean install. I just can't find the windows 10 Pro download in the tool. But if i could use a windows 10 pro key with a normal windows 10 install, I'll be good to go.

    Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    As far as I am aware there is no Windows 10 Pro version.
    But I'd be happy to be wrong.

    Clean install win 10 Pro

    Win 10 clean install question

    So I spend the day yesterday installing the computer, using a prepared usb key with windows 10 on it.

    I got it all sorted in the end but I'll share my fails anyways so others might learn:

    Do not try to do a clean install win with win 10 home N, when you come from a machine with just win 10 home. It won't activate *Wink Clean install win 10 Pro ;) After reinstalling with the right copy, it was already activated right away after the first boot, didn't even have to initialise it.

    There hasn't changed a whole lot in making clean install compared to older versions of windows, it's slightly better streamlined, though being asked at 3 different stages to enter a product key when it's not needed during install seems a bit annoying.

    Further more it would be lovely if Microsoft finally learned to ask ALL questions regarding preferences updates and whatnot in one go, so you can then go away from your computer and come back to a fully installed/updated system including reboots.. Not impossible I would say.


    There's still some little bugs, like when I installed realtek audio drivers, they'd go into an infinite loop asking for reboot and install the driver. And as a PDF reader isn't in the list of standard programs to select, foxitreader keeps saying it is not the default reader for pdf's even though I had said yes to the question 3x. If this fails to get file associations for PDF's I do hope Microsoft will fix this asap.


    Thanks for the fast answers earlier guys, it gave me the confidence that all would be well, even when I cocked up the first install with the N version.
