In this article, We will let you know in a step by step procedures that how you can download Windows 10 ISO file directly from Microsoft website without product key.
Most of the people must have already downloaded Windows 10 directly from the windows update process freely. When it was available to download, but it isn’t available now. For those people who want to download Windows 10 ISO file then here is a step-by-step guide for you.
In July 2015, the company started out initiating pre-downloads of windows to the registered computers 24 hours before the official launch. But it’s obvious that some users would require to download an official ISO image file to install it to another PC or to reinstall on the same machine. With that ISO Image file, you can create bootable windows 10 USB flash drive or DVD for installation process.
You can download Windows 10 ISO file from Microsoft official website. You don’t need the product key to download it officially. That’s why anyone can download it as far as the internet connection is available. However, a genuine product key is required to activate the Windows 10 after the successful installation or during the installation process.
Below is the checklist Microsoft has created which is required before the downloading process.
- An active and reliable Internet connection.
- A blank USB storage device or DVD with at least 4GB of space for the creation of media. There’ll also be the requirement for a DVD burner if that’s your chosen medium.
- Enough storage space available on the computer being used to download the ISO.
- Make sure your PC meets all other Windows 10 requirements, you can check those here
- If you’re doing a clean installation process then a genuine product key is required to activate it. If all the above conditions are met then here are the processes you need to follow to download Windows 10 ISO file.
