Microsoft Confirm Ability to Clean Install Windows 10
Rikki Wright / 2 years ago
If you are an enthusiast, you know to gain the best performance out of your new operating system is to complete a fresh install. This removes any possible problems that have occurred during the time in use and gives you a clean slate to work on.
The problem is, whenever Microsoft has released a new version of Windows with a free upgrade option, that is all it is; an upgrade. This is enough to put most users off from upgrading to the newest operating system even though it proves massive performance gains.
Now Gabe Aul has confirmed that the upgrade will also work as an ISO to be able to perform a clean install. This will come as welcome news to a great proportion of the community who will want to wipe clean their storage drives to get the best possible performance.
This upgrade will be free for Windows 7/8/8.1 users for one year after release on June 29th. Just remember to check the compatibility of your hardware with Windows 10.
I’m personally looking forward to Windows 10, the start menu will be warmly welcomed back, although Candy Crush will be uninstalled almost instantly. Will you be upgrading? Let us know in the comments.
