If you are tired of waiting for the Windows Update notification to pop up to install the latest OS from Microsoft, then follow this easy guide of how to install Windows 10 now. For the longest time I was using a MacBook and got quite accustomed to OSX, but about ten month ago I decided to build a custom PC for reason like video editing and strong performance. The new build left me a couple choices of what version of Windows to run; 7 or 8. At the time I chose to go with 8, but not soon after installed 7 instead. Windows 8 was buggy and there seemed to be pointless functionality here and there. Windows 7 ha the setup I liked a lot more. Now there is Windows 10 that is free and easy to install.
A couple months ago you could have reserved a installation notification when your PC was ready to load the new OS. But you don’t have to wait around for that to appear. You can head over to Microsoft.com and follow the steps to get Windows 10 installed on your PC. Once you are there, here is what you do…
How to install Windows 10 the easy way (scroll down for the video)
- Read over the system requirements
- 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC
- RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit
- Hard disk space: 16 GB for 32-bit OS 20 GB for 64-bit OS
- Graphics card: DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
- Display: 800×600
- Have a product key ready
- Use the media creation tool to download Windows (preference)
- Download your respective 32-bit or 64-bit file
But in all reality all I did was click the 64-bit (for my setup), download, open the file, and began the installation without worrying about the steps above. At whatever point you start once the installation begins all you pretty much have to do is click the Update this PC option and let it do it’s thing.
The installation went really well for me and I had no issues whatsoever. I did not do a clean install (wipe before install) and my computer is working well with my programs.
