  1. STILL CANNOT CLEAN INSTALL WIN 10 ver 1903


    greetings, my laptop is an:

    alienware 17 r5

    win 10 x64bit

    128 gb ssd

    1 tb hdd

    16gb ram

    1050 gtx

    1year old. never dropped it. no hardware issue.

    healthy ssd. healthy usb drive.


    Last time i had a problem installing win10. Nothing i found in the internet works.

    here's the detail of my first question/inquiry: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install/cannot-clean-install-windows-10-on-alienware-17/7f8dcf67-e96f-4bd4-b2d3-06673dd58397?tm=1562914581500


    BUT, recently i found a way to install windows and make it to the desktop. The conditions are supposedly:

    -i have to use the windows installation media by microsoft, not dell os recovery

    -uefi. legacy off. secureboot off

    -the lan cable must be connected

    Now, i thought i fixed it but, when i restarted it, it goes either "winload efi error 0xc0000225" or automatic repair loop. EVERYTIME.

    ______________

    Ofcourse none of these worked: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/error-code-0xc0000225-with-a-recurring-loop/7612df1b-5ab2-4f07-bed4-fb9f9e955e0e?linkId=70742420

    in method 1:

    "automatic repair couldnt repair your pc"


    in method 2:

    2.1. fixboot - access is denied (bootsec/nt60sys fixed nothing as well.)

    2.2. rebuildbcd - detected windows installed = 0

    (trying to solve these little errors did nothing.)


    WHAT CAN I DO TO CLEAN INSTALL WINDOWS? i dont understand. i formatted and fully cleaned my ssd. it is healthy.. my installation media usb drive is healthy. so why windows wont install correctly?

    :)

    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 STILL CANNOT CLEAN INSTALL WIN 10 ver 1903 ;) 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.

    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.
