    Default Nearly Done With New Build [Windows 10 Professional OEM question]

    Hello all my friends, I am back on, please excuse my absence, been sick the entire year and turmoil
    in my family, I know all of this is going to eventually become passe someday ahead and really do need to focus my mind on the things I love dearly
    Women, Pro Wrestling & Building Computers/ or selling them. But anyways I have technically two more pieces of hardware and mainly need to go ahead
    and purchase Windows 10, I am building my system's operating system with Windows 10 Professional 64 bit but need help understanding a format selection.
    I am really trying to get this thing done, I own a BD/BRW BDR ROM drive, I know optical media drives are not really a thing these days, after noticing so many
    cases have 1 expansion bay and most don't just multiple front system fans. So just wondering if it's possible to just legally download and purchase a downloaded
    version of Windows 10 Professional 64-bit with a new build and just store the download on a USB drive and boot the USB drive while starting the PC after it's gone in Power
    On Start Test verification. then the next on to install an OS as it would state "Please select an optical drive to install OS" (Well that's what I about know from installing Operating Systems on my own brand new builds)
    I mean USB drives are low price these days so cheap (that are none high-capacity a 6-year-old kid can possibly purchase one) and just buy the Serial key legally, but I just realized, that I don't know if I am paying
    for just the serial or serial+downloaded version of Windows 10 Pro 64. (from a trusted site like Play-Asia) I mean I have no clue purchasing a hard copy of windows but it just sucks I have so many discs laying around nearly 2,000 games that I've bought
    over the years... its crazy and not just that software too, and having to end up buying the same thing twice and had no idea I had a McAfee AV but anyways that's a different topic for a different time.


    Thanks in advance, I apologize about my post sloppiness I posted on my android tablet in bed, but not in a mood to get on my desktop at the moment..
    Hopefully, i didn't get anyting complicated here going into this.

    If you go into the bios you can select the USB drive as your first boot, then harddrive, instead of the optical drive and install your operating system from it, and should not be a problem.
    Hope this is the answer you were looking for.

    Ah okay well I was pondering about it being an option selecting an option from the BIOS
    to get it to boot as default even though that's just the USB thumb drive having Windows 10 on it.
    I did a little research. I downloaded the Media installer thingy to try and get ahead of things. And noticed that it doesn't have Professional 64-bit as a selection. I've attached the installer on my current system.





    Unless it's under a different name as i dont see windows 10 pro 64 inside the dialog box windows 10 installer.

    And thanks for your help!

    So, the first drop down is covering the second drop down on that screenshot, but on that you have to go with the Windows 10 selection, then the drop down below that has the architecture type, x64 being the one you want. I'm not sure why the pro option isn't there, unless you put your key in already, then you can only install the version the key supports. That part gets a little hazy for me.

    From this legal MS page https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10 you can download the installation of Windows 10 according to your license key.
    First download Create Windows 10 installation media, start the program and follow the steps of it. Read the option Using the tool to create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) to install Windows 10 on a different PC (click to show more or less information)

    Always look beyond the limits...

    Hello guys thanks for replying back, hopefully i don't become a pest around here. I totally forgot about the Windows 10 "media" page when i first
    installed Windows 10 on this system. But seems like i find the .ISO image :'( it's a little confusing but i think i am getting the hang of it.... But with the
    disc when installing it after the POST, then later ask you to install an OS, Unless there is a drop down menu where i could select Professional 64
    As the default version of Microsoft Windows, not to make this sound like something "Illegal" but any of you guys purchased any keys from sites
    like G2A, etc. And i need to save much money as i can. So did any of those legal keys from serial key sites work for you all??
