How do I reinstall Windows after it crashes or viruses?
If you ask on any near-computerforum about what his regulars associate the word "windows", then it's unlikely that someone will tell you about the windows. Most likely, the majority of users who have had time to "play" with Win 98-XP, will remember about its reinstallations. Unfortunately, the question of how to reinstall Windows is still relevant, despite the quite decent reliability of the latest OS of this legendary family. In fairness, it must be said that most often problems of this kind arise through the fault of the users themselves.
Consider the classic case of reinstalling from CDor a DVD disc. Since this is the easiest way to do this exactly (since it is somewhat more difficult to reinstall Windows from a USB flash drive due to the need to work with some specific utilities), here we will talk about installing from optical disks.
The first thing you have to do is recordimage of the system to disk. We will not talk about how to do this. It is worth mentioning only that it is desirable to burn the disc at the lowest speed, since otherwise errors that make the installation process impossible are not ruled out. The image of the system is better to download only (!) Official, not being tempted by the promises of "developers" assemblies, in plenty filled with all sorts of rubbish.
Do not forget that with officially soldlaptops often come with legal installation discs. Since it is more difficult for users to reinstall Windows on a laptop (because of firmware settings), manufacturers often simplify this process by creating hidden partitions with recovery images. In short, if your system is flying on a laptop, go to the developer's site and read the manuals there: it's possible that you do not need any disks at all.
So we'll talk about how to reinstallWindows on the PC. So, after writing the image to the disc, insert it into the computer drive and send it to the reboot. Please note that before this you need to remove all important information from the system disk, since then it will not be possible to restore it. Waiting until the BIOS logo appears, which is used on your computer, press the DEL key on the keyboard. If everything works out, you will be taken to the BIOS settings.
Before you reinstall Windows, you willyou must specify a boot from the CD. Since there are many varieties of the BIOS, one can not give the only correct way to configure it. Here again you will have to show independence and learn about it on thematic forums or the site of its manufacturer. After saving the settings, restart the computer again.
Wait until the download is completefile system, you will see the installation window that appears. In modern OS, the process runs in a completely graphical mode. You will need to set the system language, set the time, user name and password. As a rule, there are several options in the installer window, among which it is best for novice users to select a "full reinstall" when the system automatically formats the system disk and performs other necessary operations.
Hopefully, we've been telling you how to reinstall Windows, and in the future such questions will not bother you anymore.
