Start the in­stall process

Windows 7 Help & Advice - - WINDOWS 10 -

1 Re­boot for me­dia

If you’re run­ning Win­dows 7, or have Fast Boot dis­abled, insert your boot me­dia and start your PC. Look for a ‘Press any key to boot from CD or DVD’ op­tion – even if you have booted from a USB flash drive. Press any key on your key­board and you should find that the Win­dows in­stall process starts.

2 Tweak boot op­tions

If you boot back into Win­dows, restart your PC again, but this time press a key, such as [F11], when prompted to open a boot menu. Once you have done so, select your boot me­dia – choos­ing UEFI if that op­tion ap­pears – to boot; oth­er­wise, en­ter setup so that you can change the boot de­vice or­der.

3 Win­dows 8.1/10

If Fast Boot is en­abled on your com­puter, open Set­tings in Win­dows and then nav­i­gate to ‘Up­date & re­cov­ery’ > Re­cov­ery, then click ‘Restart now’ un­der ‘Ad­vanced start-up’. When the boot op­tions ap­pear, choose ‘Use a de­vice’ to select the USB flash drive or DVD you cre­ated from the list that ap­pears.
