In this video we will see how to install Windows 10 offline using a USB flash stick. This would work for you weather you’re upgrading from a previous version of Windows or making a fresh installation on a formatted PC. And if you don’t have a Windows 10 product key or license and you’re running a previous version of the Windows such as Windows 7 or 8.1, then follow the instructions carefully to obtain a fully activated Windows 10 for free.
The first step is to create our Windows 10 USB installation media using Microsoft Windows media creation tool, which is basically copying the installation files to the USB and configuring it to be bootable.
Then the second step is to install Windows 10 offline using this USB flash drive we created.
There are two possible ways to perform the offline installation for Windows 10, one way is to install from your Windows environment, that is from a running windows, it could be Windows 7 or 8, another way is to install from your BIOS where you choose to boot from the installation media we just created. The process is basically the same for both ways.
If you don’t have Windows 10 license and you’re running a previous version of Windows like Windows 7 or 8.1, you need to ensure that your PC has been connected to the internet at least once since after it was activated, this is important for the free activation of Windows 10, however you don’t need to be connected to the internet during the upgrade process.
After the upgrade, when you try to verify the activation status of your Windows 10, it says unable to reach windows activation servers, and that is because we have not connected to the internet during and after the upgrade process, now to activate our windows, we simply turn on our internet connection and check the activation status again.
