2、 Installation process

After completing the preparation work, we can start installing the Windows 10 operating system. The following are the specific installation steps:

  1. Create a startup USB drive:

Copy the downloaded Windows 10 operating system image file to a USB drive,
Open the downloaded iso image file, select “Install media for another computer” during the installation process, and select the professional version.

At this point, it is necessary to confirm that the USB drive has been inserted into the computer. During the process of creating the system drive, the USB drive will be formatted, and all previous files on the USB drive will be lost. Important files must be backed up in advance and remembered.

During this process, there may be many issues that prevent the card owner from continuing to the next step:

For example, even though the capacity of a USB flash drive exceeds 8GB, the system keeps reminding that the capacity of the USB flash drive is too small

The main issue is that the USB flash drive format needs to be adjusted. Just adjust the USB flash drive format. If you have more questions, you can go to the personal homepage and add my personal VX for consultation.
