How to install Windows 10: Clean install

You can't clean install Windows 10 with no going via the update we explained before. That's mainly because you actually don't have an product key as you do with Windows 7 or 8, therefore Windows 10 needs to activate automatically online right after updating from an eligible copy of Windows 7 or 8.1.

While Windows 10 is activated, Microsoft can recognize your PC and connect it with an activated and legal Windows 10 licence. This indicates you can perform a clean install (also on a different hard drive, so it's a good time to upgrade to an SSD if you are operating Windows on a conventional hard drive) and Windows 10 will certainly activate without having issue.

To check if Windows 10 has activated after upgrading, head to Control Panel >  System and Security >  System and look under Windows activation:
Simply if you make "significant changes" to your COMPUTER will you have to call the Microsoft account activation helpline.

To complete a clean install, you will need to go back to Step 2 from the walkthrough before, using the tool you downloaded to make a bootable USB drive or DVD. When that is done, switch off your laptop or computer, set up or remove any hard drives and SSDs you want to replace around and after that boot from your USB or DVD.

If your LAPTOP won't boot through it, head into the BIOS settings (normally click Delete, F1 or one of the other F keys just after you turn your laptop on) and ensure removable drives, or the DVD drive is placed as the first boot device, and not a hard drive. We cannot be specific about the menus and settings, because each BIOS is various.

How to fix blinking screen after Windows 10 installation

It had been attracted to our interest that a lot of consumers are getting problems with the screen flashing following the Windows 10 installation.

The good news is it's fixable. First of all, reboot your personal pc. You can try pressing Alt-F4 and selecting restart if you can do it when the display is blinking, but normally hold down the power button for up to 10 secs till the computer turns off. Turn it on again, but rather of logging straight into Windows 10, press the on-screen power button then hold the Shift key on your keyboard while clicking on the Restart option.

Windows 10 will not reboot but will go to a screen with a troubleshooting option. Press this and after that Advanced options. Now select to restart and you will see choices to go directly into Safe Mode. Any Safe Mode option will do. The PC will now start in Safe Mode.

Click the Windows key and R together to have the Run box. Now type msconfig and click Enter. Head to the Services Tab in the window that starts. Scroll down till you find two tasks that need to be stopped:

Disable these by unchecking them, next click Apply, Ok. Restart the computer. If that won't correct it, restart into Safe Mode once more and right-click on the taskbar along the bottom of the screen. Choose Task Manager and then click on the tab for Startup programs. You may right-click on each one and disable it. This must stop the flashing screen, and after that you can turn services back on in Task Manager 1 by 1 (a restart after each) to separate which often application is causing it.
