You can reinstall Windows from scratch using the product key that came with your PC, but you’ll have sầu to find installation truyền thông yourself. Microsoft offers không tính tiền ISO files for downloading; you just have sầu lớn know where to look.


There are a few ways khổng lồ bởi this, but they’re all on the straight & narrow–you won’t have to lớn visit a shady BitTorrent site to lớn download ISOs that may be filled with malware. Instead, you get official installation truyền thông media straight from Microsoft.


NOTE: Depending on the OEM version of Windows that you are running, you might run into an issue using the OEM key with a retail version of Windows. If it won’t activate, you can always install & then điện thoại tư vấn Microsoft to get them khổng lồ straighten it out & allow your copy khổng lồ activate. The most important thing is that you have sầu a valid license key.

Download the Windows 10 or 8.1 ISO Using the Media Creation Tool

If you’ve sầu got access to a Windows machine, the official method for downloading ISOs for Windows 8.1 & 10 is the Media Creation Tool. The process for using the tool is largely the same for both versions of Windows, so we’ll be using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool for our example. We’ll just note where anything differs.

RELATED: How to lớn Find Your Lost Windows or Office Product Keys

One caveat you should be aware of up front is that you can no longer tải về an ISO for Windows 8–just 8.1. And the hàng hóa keys are different for Windows 8 and 8.1, so if you have a Windows 8 sản phẩm key, you can’t just use it lớn install Windows 8.1. Instead, you’ll have sầu to install Windows 8, then bởi a free nâng cấp to 8.1. After you vì the upgrade, Windows will assign the new sản phẩm key to lớn the installation. You can find that sản phẩm key in a number of different ways & save sầu it for the future. After that, you should be able to lớn do a clean installation of Windows 8.1 using the new sản phẩm key & won’t have sầu khổng lồ worry about installing Windows 8 first và going the upgrade route.

Start by downloading either the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool or the Windows 8.1 Media Creation Tool. Once the tệp tin has downloaded, just double-clichồng it to start the tool & then clichồng “Yes” to give sầu it permission to lớn make changes to your PC. When the tool starts, cliông xã “Accept” khổng lồ accept the license terms. cảnh báo that the Windows 8.1 version of the tool does not ask you to accept license terms.

(If you don’t want khổng lồ use the Media Creation Tool & just want to tải về an ISO tệp tin directly, just change your browser’s user agent lớn a non-Windows browser like Apple Safari on Máy tính bảng iPad while you’re viewing the tải về page. Microsoft will offer you a direct download of the Windows 10 or Windows 8.1 ISO file instead of the standard Media Creation Tool, which only runs on Windows.)

*


When the tool asks what you want to bởi, select “Create installation truyền thông for another PC” và then cliông xã “Next.” The Windows 8.1 version of the tool also does not provide this option; it just defaults to creating installation truyền thông media for another PC (which is what we want).

*

The tool will suggest a language, edition, and architecture for Windows based on information about the PC on which the tool is running. If you’re going to use the installation media on that PC, go ahead and just clichồng “Next.” If you’re planning khổng lồ install it on a different PC, clear the “Use recommended options for this PC” check box, select options that are more appropriate for the license you have, & then cliông chồng “Next.” Note that if you’re using the 8.1 version of the tool, you actually start with this screen. The tool also won’t recommover options; you have to lớn select them yourself.

Remember, your license will only work with the correct version of Windows–if your license is for 64-bit Windows 10 Pro, you can’t install 32-bit Windows 10 Home with it, so ensure your selections here match what’s listed on your sản phẩm key.

*

Next, select whether you want the tool khổng lồ create a bootable USB flash drive with the installation media, or just create an ISO tệp tin that you can use or burn lớn a DVD later. We’re going with the ISO file in this example, but the process is much the same either way. If you go with the USB option, you’ll need to lớn provide a USB drive sầu with at least 3 GB of space. Also, the USB drive will be formatted during the process, so make sure there’s nothing on it you need. Select the option you want and then clichồng “Next.”

*


Choose a place lớn save sầu the finished ISO file (or point the tool toward the right USB drive if that’s the option you chose).

*

At this point, the Media Creation Tool will begin downloading the files và assembling your ISO, which can take a fair bit of time depending on your mạng internet connection. When it’s finished, you can cliông chồng “Open DVD Burner” if you want to lớn go ahead và create a disc or just click Finish if you don’t want to make a disc right now.

After you select the edition you want khổng lồ tải về, clichồng “Confirm.”
