HOW TO INSTALL WINDOWS 10 PRO FROM A USB DRIVE STEP BY STEP
Some people prefer to use flash as an installation medium rather than using a DVD. The first argument is that maybe their netbooks don't have a CD drive or their PC's DVD drive crashes. And the second argument because maybe the flash is simpler.
To install Windows 10 using a flash, you must first make your flash drive bootable. There are several programs or programs that you can use to make your flash drive bootable, but the program I most recommend is Rufus.
I have used this program for a long time, and as long as I have used it there have been no problems overall this program can be relied on to create a bootable flash drive.
Actually, without using a 3rd party program, we can also boot a flash drive, namely by using the CMD tool from Windows. But of course, for beginners in the computer world, it is really not recommended to use it.
BIOS settings to boot from flash
- Make sure you do not take the flash. Then, restart your netbook or PC.
- Press the DEL (Delete) button to enter the BIOS. Common keys that you can use to enter the BIOS are DEL, F1, F2, F10, or Fn+F2, depending on the type of netbook and your motherboard.
- You will see the appearance of the BIOS more or less like the image below. Then, navigate to the Boot tab using the key.
- Just as you can see in the Boot menu if the first one is the Hard Drive. In other words, your netbook or PC will boot from the hard disk for the first time.
- For your netbook to boot from the flash for the first time, therefore you need to place Removable Devices in the first position. The trick is quite easy, namely by selecting Removable Devices and then sliding it using the +/- button until its position is at the top status.
- Oh yes, generally the BIOS immediately knows your flash is the same according to the brand of the flash, for example, USB Kingston or Toshiba is not called Removable Devices.
- To save the settings you have worked on, move to the Exit tab, select Exit Saving Changes, and then select Yes. Or you can directly press the F10 key, then specify Yes.
- Press any key to start booting.
- There will be an initial appearance of the Windows 10 installation as shown in the video.
