    Creating a clean windows 10/1903 install


    Hello

    Since I'm having troble re-installing Microsoft FSX I would like to create a clean Windows 10 latest version 1903 and put that on a separate disk or partition so I can install FSX there and alternately boot from that disk when I want to use FSX.

    I've downloaded and tried to install on my C:/ system drive using the option not to retain anything (I have an image of my drive so I can go back) but the install does not offer to change the destination and it retains all my original appas anyway, including the original registry which is certainly what prevents me from installing FSX.

    So my question is: what do I have to do in order to just install W10 onto an empty disk or partition and get a completely virgin W10 tp boot from?

    Thaks in advance for any help

    :)

  3. Clean Install Workaround for Vista

    You may remember this news story on techPowerUp! a couple of days ago relating to the lack of clean installs when using the Upgrade Editions of Vista, which required an old OS to be installed. However, Paul Thurrott has managed to find a workaround for this issue, which ironically lets users do a clean install Vista without any previous version of Windows, albeit a little tedious. Here are the steps:
    • Boot from the Windows Vista Upgrade DVD as normal
    • When prompted for a product code, leave this blank
    • Select the version of Vista you have purchased and let Vista install
    • When you boot to your desktop for the first time, run the Vista setup from Windows
    • This time enter your product key
    • When asked whether you want to do an Upgrade of Custom install, select custom and choose a clean install
    • Windows will now install for a second time and you should be able to activate it
    Remember, these steps are only advised for use in order to achieve a clean install of Vista, it is only legal to use the upgrade editions if you have previously purchased the appropriate version of Windows.

    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.
