Reinstalling from the disk
When reinstalling from the disk, remember that to restore the license you need to use the distribution with exactly the same OS as it was previously. You can find out the version of the installed system on the sticker, which is usually located on the back of the laptop. By the way, there is a licensed key of your copy of Windows.
Remember that when reinstalling the disk a new operating system unfolds, and in order to avoid problems in the future, it is worth deleting the data of the previous Windows.
This is implemented by formatting the system section, so take care in advance about the transfer of all the necessary data from the selected volume of the hard drive for installing Windows. It is not desirable to transfer installed programs, since the connection with the register is lost, and many of them may not start. Do not be lazy, install them again after replacing the OS.
The distribution of the installation disk includes the drivers not for all laptops, so download the drivers in advance for your device on the official resource of the manufacturer. If this is not done, then after installation there is a high probability of the following problems:
If you reinstalled the OS without this, then to eliminate the malfunctions of network equipment you will have to download the distribution of drivers using another computer and carry them using removable media, so do not forget to be safe before reinstalling and download the drivers for the network card and the Wi-Fi module.
To start the installation process, insert the disk into the disc and restart the laptop. After starting the computer, open the loading menu where you should select the loading from the DVD red.
This dialogue is called on most laptops using the F12 key. And on HP devices, F9 ESC combination is used.

Reinstalled Windows is ready to work. In case the boot priorities in the BIOS are changed, return the hard drive in the first place in the list, otherwise the computer will constantly try to start with DVD.
We set up BIOS
BIOS design or advanced option, UEFI, varies depending on the manufacturer and the firmware version. It is impossible to give a universal guide for all PC and laptops models. Therefore, answering how to install Windows on PC, we give a general way of action:
- Turn off a computer or laptop.
- With a new turning on, press the BIOS entry key several times. Depending on the manufacturer, it can be Delete, F2, F8, F12 or other button.
- When you see the BIOS window on the monitor, go to the boot tab.

Reinstallation of Windows on laptop
When we are talking about reinstalling the Windows on the laptop, we mean the wrong process that occurs on the desktop PC. Each model is a unique device with its own set of components. Hence the difficulties: after installing the system, you will need to find and install drivers designed for a particular laptop.
In fairness, it is worth noting that the laptops have one huge plus. If the factory system was not replaced by “its own, more convenient”, then we have the opportunity to use “native” programs to restore. They allow the OS to roll back to the state in which she was at the time of purchase. At the same time, all drivers are preserved, which saves us from the need to search for them. In addition, in this case, the installation carrier is not required, since the disk already has a special section containing files for recovery.

Preparation for installation

First of all, you must prepare your computer or laptop (then I will say just a computer) to work with new software. To do this, you need to remember what important information is stored for you on a computer, then it must be copied to a place protected at the time of installation. It can be a flash card, a hard drive or any portable storage device of a sufficient volume to save all your data. You need to look for such data on the local disk of your computer in folders with photos, my documents and on the desktop. If you are an experienced user, then to maintain information you can use the free space of the second local disk, if any in the system.
In addition, you should have at hand at least a separate medium with a network card driver, and best of all. With drivers of all devices of your computer. If you do not have the right driver at the end of the installation, it does not matter, it can be downloaded on the Internet. But if you don’t have a network card driver, then you won’t work out from the Internet and then you will have to contact friends to help with friends for help.
