[TUTORIAL] Install Windows 10 FAST without USB/DVD, without the setup wizard [Fastest method] !

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

Today I will show you how to install Windows 10 on a PC without a CD/DVD/USB, directly onto the HDD, even without the installation wizard/setup ! [Fastest Method]

Yesterday my new hard drive for my laptop arrived, and instead of cloning my existing disk, I decided to do a clean install of Windows 10. But I didnt have much time, cuz after installing windows 10, I had to copy my existing downloads, pictures, videos, install programs, etc. & I thought there must be some other way to easily install windows 10 without that installation wizard/setup. After some research, I made my own method, & installed it succesfully, faster than their setup wizard! Now I am gonna show you how to accomplish that. Lets Begin! :) 

Pre-Requisites

  • Seperate Hard Drive with atleast 20GB space, with only 2 primary partitions [where you have to install Win10] [An empty/new hard drive is highly recommended]
  • Working PC/laptop with Windows XP or above installed, with Internet access 

Procedure:

  1. Firstly, download Windows 10 ISO using Windows 10 Download Tool from here & extract it to C:\win10 using some archive manager like 7zip/winrar. 
  2. Now connect that seperate hard drive to your PC (If you have externel harddrive cage, then connect to it, else buy a SATA to USB hard disk enclosure like this one)
  3. Open a command prompt as administrator (Go to start menu > search cmd > Rightclick on the first search result & RUn as administrator)
  4. Type: diskpart
  5. Now type: list disk
  6. It will show the disks connected to your PC. According to the size, you should be able to know which is your disk. 
  7. Type: select disk X  [Replace X with the disk number which you saw in the previous guide, in my case it was disk 1]
  8. Type the following one by one: 
    create partition primary size=350
    format fs=ntfs unit=4096 label="System Reserved" quick
    active
    assign letter=P
    create partition primary size="Any size convenient for you, in MB"
    format fs=ntfs label="Windows 10" quick
    assign letter=Q
    exit
  9. Your partitions have been configured! Now, if you are in Windows 7 (or below), download DISM from here, open the file, when It will ask for extraction folder, change the location to: C:\dism

  10. Now, this is the most important step. All the windows files will be copied to the partition.  

    cd c:\dism
    ## Skip the above line if you are running Windows 8 & above.
    Dism /apply-image /imagefile:C:\win10\sources\install.esd /index:1 /ApplyDir:Q:\
    ## [DO NOT TYPE THIS] If you downloaded Windows 10 normal edition using the Download Tool,
    ## & if you want to install Win10 Home then replace /index:1 with /index:2.
    ## For Win10 pro it is /index:1.
    

    Windows XP & Windows 8 users may (cuz I havent tested in them, but it works in 8.1 & 10) need to convert the install.esd file into an install.wim file (if some error shows up). Search in Google How to convert esd to wim

  11. Now you have successfully extracted all the files for windows! :) Now all you have to do is prepare the boot files in the System Reserved partition.

  12. Now you are gonna prepare the System Reserved partition for booting succesfully. Run the following in administrator CMD:

    bcdboot Q:\Windows /l en-us /s P: /f ALL
    ## [DO NOT TYPE THIS] You can replace en-us with your locale,
    ## For eg. en-in, en-gb, en-ru etc.
  13. Everything is done! Now you are ready to go! Now boot into the drive. If you did everything correctly & succesfully, then Windows will boot to the welcome screen. Done! Enjoy the manually installed Windows! :);) B) 

 

Hope this guide was helpful & easy to you. If you have doubt about something or you got any errors, or if windows doesnt boot, then feel free to post below.

 

Cheers & Regards,

      So this is the problem. I download and run the Windows ISO Downloader , version is up to date (6.02) . Whenever I pick any other windows option besides windows 7 , the tool greys out and crashes. 

      I have went through the FAQ's and I do not have the lines in the HOSTS file that should be removed, I disabled adblock when downloading, I have turned off firewall , I do not have an antivirus program installed. TLS 1.2 is enabled. I started the tool as administrator and have IE 11 and .NET framework 4.7.1 installed

      The Windows 10 Pro is greyed out for Windows 10 Pro - March 2018.
