How to install Windows 10: download and upgrade from Windows 7 or 8.1
Step 1: Visit Microsoft's new Windows 10 download and install page and click on the link for the 64-bit version. Only use 32-bit if your computer doesn't have a 64-bit cpu. There's no need to save the file - just choose the Run option.

Step 2: You will see two choices: Upgrade now, or create installation media. Assuming you're trying to upgrade the PC you're running the tool on, choose Upgrade this PC now. The explanation during this is that you cannot do a clean install directly away as part of the free update. See our step-by-step instructions on installing Windows 10 for information on a clean install.

Step 3: Now Windows 10 will begin downloading it from scratch. We have simply attempted this on a laptop and there doesn't appear to be any delay from Microsoft's servers, even on launch day.

Step 3: If you would rather make a bootable USB or DVD to install Windows 10 on another computer, or several PCs, choose that option. This is a new and simpler way to install Windows than dealing with ISO images, as the download tool is an all in one utility that will do everything for you. All you need is at least a 4GB USB drive (or writable DVD). It can also convert the saved files to an ISO if that's what you need. You may choose the language, and also to create a bootable drive or disc with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. What's necessary is that you select the right Edition. You can see which version your pc is eligible for in Will my PC get Windows 10?

Step 4: Accept the licence terms when prompted, and the installer will then check out your COMPUTER for compatibility condition with Windows 10, that it has adequate free space and will get updates. You will not need an activation key for Windows 10 if you're updating from an suitable version of Windows 7 or 8.1.

Step 5: When prompted, click to install Windows 10 and your device will restart. You will see a Windows logo, followed by a language selection - UK English should be selected. Windows 10 will then install immediately, keeping all your programs (apart from antivirus), files and settings. However, as we said at the begin, it's worth backing up anything you can't afford to lose first.

Step 6: When you finally get to the Windows 10 desktop, enable a bit of time for Windows 10 lookup for drivers for your computer hardware. Initially on our test notebook, it seemed as though the graphics card drivers hadn't been discovered and installed. Nevertheless, after a short while this was all done in the background and the correct image resolution set.

If you need to do a clean install, then scroll down to another section.
till, it's worth started to Device Manager and checking that all drivers are set up, especially for the system chipset. If you can't get Windows 10 drivers through your motherboard manufacturer, Windows 7 or 8 drivers may work.
