How to Reinstall Windows 10 Original Laptop Default
When you buy a laptop at official stores that have collaborated with Microsoft Indonesia then you will get a laptop with an Original Windows 10 System or you can also a technician where your shop-bought a laptop that already has an Original Windows 10 Installer. When the laptop you are using is having problems, such as a windows error, you can try to reinstall it yourself, without paying for a windows reinstallation service at a computer and laptop service place. So that it can save expenses, and can also be anticipated if a computer or laptop suddenly experiences an error system, you can fix it yourself.
Until now, there are still many computer and laptop users who depend on computer and laptop service providers in terms of reinstalling Windows. In fact, if you learn how to reinstall Windows, it's not that difficult. Tutorials on how to reinstall Windows are scattered and easy to get just by searching google.
here I will share a guide on how to easily Reinstall Windows on a Laptop. This method actually can also be applied to reinstall Windows on a computer. It's just that there is a slight difference in the appearance of the BIOS settings, but the core and the procedure are almost the same and very similar.
First, prepare a Windows Master Bootable Installer, either in the form of a Bootable Flashdisk or a Bootable DVD. For how to make a Master Bootable Windows Flasdisk Installer, I've discussed it before, please look for the Post on the Computer Label.
Guide on How to Reinstall the Latest Windows 10 Update LaptopTurn on the laptop, then when the laptop brand logo appears press the F2 key to enter the system BIOS.
on the BIOS Setup Window select the Boot Menu Tab then Boot Priority Drive settings. If you are using the Flasdisk Bootable Installer then position the Flashdisk at the top of Number 1 as shown in the screenshot below.
And if you use the Windows DVD Master Installer then position the CDROM Drive to be at the top of number 1. The trick is to use the F5 and F6 keys to swap positions.
save the settings by pressing the F10 button, if the Save Configuration Change and Exit Now notification appear? Select Yes by pressing Enter. Or you can also go to the Exit menu, select Save and Change Configuration.
The laptop will restart and boot through the Windows Master Bootable Installer, Set the Language to Install and the Time and Currently Format according to the Language and Time Zone of your country. Hover over the Next Menu to continue and press Enter. To navigate, you can use the Tab key if the mouse is not functioning.
For example, here I did not change the language Install and still use the default language Installer English (United States), but for the time zone setting options, I choose Indonesia.
On the Windows Setup window, click Install Now, you can also press the Enter key
On the Windows Activate Tab select, I don't have a product key if you don't have a Windows 10 product key.
on the tab Select Operating System You Want to Install, select the version of Windows according to your wishes or tastes then click Next (If the cursor is not active use Tab to select and Enter for conformation).
check List I Accept the license terms, then Next
select Custom: Install Windows Only (Advanced)
select the Hard Drive that will be used as a Windows System. Be careful not to choose the wrong Data Storage Drive at the risk of data burning because the Drive will be reformatted automatically.
If a notification appears Windows can't be installed on Drive Partition, it means there is a difference in the Hard Drive format so it is not compatible. To fix this you have to equate between the System Format Drive Installer with the Drive to be installed. There are two types of Drive Formats, for the outdated version the Drive is usually MBR Fat32 / NTFS, and for the newest current version MBR UEFI NTFS.
If you are faced with a problem like the one below, there are 2 options to choose from:
- replace the Windows Master Bootable Installer with MBR format without having to delete all partitions and backup user data.
- Keep using the Windows GPT UEFI Bootable Installer by deleting and creating a new Hard Drive partition (RePartition Drive) and
- Don't forget to back up all users first so you don't lose data by copying it to an External Hard drive or large-capacity Flasdisk
usually, the compatible Windows 10 Installer with the Fat32 / NTFS MBR Drive Format is an old version of Windows 10 under 2018 and for new versions to date, the UEFI GPT format is generally used for the latest laptop releases today.
select Drive then select the Delete menu, a confirmation window appears select OK
do the same on the other drives to delete the Hard Disk partition
after all, partitions are deleted it will become a single Drive Unallocated Space partition
create a new partition by selecting Drive 0 Unallocated Space then selecting the New menu
to divide/partition the hard disk into several parts before pressing the Apply button, determine the size of the MB Hardisk System. For example, a laptop hard disk with a capacity of 500 GB reads 476,938 MB, I changed the number 4 hundred to 1, which means that the Hard Drive System will be 1.76,938 MB or 172.2 GB and the rest will later be used as Data Storage Hard Drive.
Press the Apply button then OK when the confirmation appears as shown in the screenshot below:
To activate the System Space DriveTime, select Drive then Select New then Apply. After that Select Back and Select Format. It can also be postponed and activated later via Explorer, which I will include in the Tutorial Link at the end of the post.
