How To Quickly Create Windows 10 Installation Media For You

By | March 19, 2022

There are now many ways to install Windows 10, and we’ve covered a comprehensive selection of how you can create your own installation media.

Windows Media Creation Tool

The first and most obvious choice for creating Windows 10 installation media is the Windows Media Creation Tool. The app allows you to get the Home or Pro version of Windows 10, and you can choose from either the 32-bit or 64-bit version for both. Following your choice, you can choose to install directly to a USB drive, or download a single or dual use ISO to install to disk at a later time.

download Windows Media Creation Tool. Once downloaded, run the application and select Create installation media for another PC. Windows 10 will download within the app, ready for you to choose your version, system architecture, and which version you want to include in your Windows 10 installation media.

If you prefer to install directly to a USB or disk, follow the on-screen instructions to complete your installation. If you are installing further on the phone, read the next section.

Without Microsoft

If you wish to continue without the Windows Media Creation Tool, Microsoft has made a provision. Windows 10 Tech Bench Upgrade Program [Tidak Lagi Tersedia] allows us to download 10-bit 32-bit and 64-bit ISOs of Windows 10 without using any download and creation tools. There is no indication that the version downloaded here or using the Media Creation Tool is different, so it really depends on personal preference.

Create Your Own Bootable Media

If you prefer to download your ISO to install at a later date, this is the section for you. Let’s take a quick look at how to transfer that ISO to a USB or disk.

USB Installation Media

Now that you have your shiny new ISO, you need to create some bootable media. I will use Rufus to create a bootable USB. It’s a small and free app, and scores relatively well among similar apps with a wider range of features. For the purposes of this installation, we only need to create a bootable disk, so go ahead and download Rufus.

Once downloaded, open the app. Select the Device you want to install. Now, go to the button highlighted in the image below. This opens a File Explorer window for you to find your Windows 10 ISO. Once you find it, select Open. Rufus will now automatically update the information for you.

Double check Partition type is set to MBR partition scheme for BIOS or UEFI-CSM, file system is NTFS, and your cluster size should be set to 4096 bytes. Also make sure the option to Create bootable disk is actually checked. It should be automatically selected when you select the Windows 10 ISO. Set an appropriate volume label, e.g. Windows 10 64-bit ISO, and then you can press Start.

Rufus will take care of the rest. Go and make a cup of tea, and come back in about 15 minutes.

Disk Installation Media

You don’t need to use a USB to create your installation media. Many people prefer the traditional disc approach, and there are plenty of free apps to help you get the job done. For this example, I’ll be using ImgBurn.

Once downloaded, install and open the app. Select Write image file to disk. Select the folder icon as highlighted in the image below.

This will open a File Explorer window, where you can select your Windows 10 ISO. ImgBurn should take care of vitals, just like Rufus, but check the Imp ID for Microsoft CDIMAGE UDF, and it clearly states Bootable next to Sys File.

Make sure the disc you are burning has sufficient free space. Ideally, use a new disk. Finally, set your Write Speed. MAX sets the maximum speed available for your drive. If writing fails, you can always try setting a slower write speed. Now you are ready to burn!

Unattended Windows 10 installation

If you’re pressed for time, out for the night, or simply have other errands to carry on while installing Windows 10, you can try an unattended install. Unattended installation is what it sounds like: you have no input during installation. All it takes is a little pre-setup.

First, we need to create an Autounatend.xml answer file. This answer file will be included in the bootable USB, and will “answer” the question throughout the Windows 10 installation.

Go to Windows Answer File Generator. Enter your product key, and select which options you want to include, such as accept the EULA, skip automatic activation, skip rearm license, setting language, entering your computer name, keyboard and input language, whether to use express privacy and sharing settings, and several other options.

Next, we will deal with partition settings. We must be sure to choose the right settings, or it could end badly.

To get started, decide whether to do a clean install or upgrade your system. If you chose a clean install, change the Wipe Disk option to Yes. Select the number of disks to install. If you are unsure of the disk number, go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management. Write down the disk number and partition number. Use my image as a reference:

I will install to disk 0. Select Yes to Main Active Partition. Make sure your Primary Partition Format is NTFS. Set a name for your Primary Partition Label. Make sure your Primary Partition Letter matches the Partition Order e.g. partition C: mine is equal to the order number of partition two.

Finally, enter your User Account information, including your Username, whether you want UAC enabled, and whether you want your account to be Automatically logged in. You are ready!

Scroll down to the console box. Download your Autounatend.xml file using the Download File located below the box.
