Legacy Guide

This guide was for Windows 10 Version 1607 which reaches End of Support in March 2018 & is superseded by newer versions. For more details on the lachạy thử version see Windows OEM FAQs and Downloads.


This guide is Dell Based but equally applies khổng lồ all other OEMs.

This OptiPlex 7010 never had Windows 10 Pro installed on it before. To ensure the system was not already a Windows 10 Pro Device I performed the installation without any hàng hóa key; Windows 10 Pro was not activated confirming the system was not made from a Windows 10 Pro Device (i.e. it hadn't been upgraded in the past). A subsequent Clean Installation of Windows 10 Pro with the Windows 7 Pro key did result in Product Activation. This means the system was newly registered with the Product Activation Server becoming a new Windows 10 Pro Device.

The latest build of Windows 10 has many names. For the sake of indexing I will danh sách them all at the top. Windows 10 RS1 = Windows 10 Redstone 1 = Windows 10 Anniversary Update = Windows 10 Build 14393 = Windows 10 Version 1607 (August 2016).

I'm proud lớn say with Windows 10 Version 1607 Microsoft have sầu taken into lớn tài khoản almost all my feedbachồng on Windows 10 Version 1607 Digital Deployment and Installation. With the Windows 10 Version 1607 Installation .isos there is now no longer any confusion regarding UEFI BIOS Embedded System Locked Preinstallation keys.

System Information

Before you even begin the Windows 10 Download you should know some details about your system. This is best done by looking at system information.

Press and < r > to bring up the run command:

In the run box type in


Then press ok.

OS Name và Version

Take a note of the OS Name. This will tell you what Edition of Windows 10 you need khổng lồ Download. It will also tell you the version you have currently installed:

14393 is RS1 (1607)10586 is TH2 (1511)10240 is TH1 (1507)

This guide will instruct in Downloading the Lachạy thử Build of Windows 10 Version 1607…

The Windows 10 Version 1607 .iso will automatically select the correct Edition of Windows 10 you are entitled to lớn once you have sầu input your Windows 7 OEM Product Key. In the case of Windows 8.x và 10 OEM keys the key will be automatically picked up from the UEFI BIOS and the correct Edition automatically selected. This will be discussed in more detail later. If you have sầu a Windows 7, 8.x or 10 Retail or 10 Education License then the Product Key is in your confirmation tin nhắn or printed on the Retail Packaging. For convenience all Retail Upgrade Keys work as Full Keys with Windows 10 Version 1607 Installation Media.

SMBIOS Version

Take a note of the SMBIOS revision…

If it is 2.7 or greater you should have sầu a UEFI BIOS with SecureBoot.If it is 2.6 you might have an Early UEFI System (UEFI without SecureBoot) or only a Legacy BIOS. You will need to lớn kiểm tra your BIOS Setup*.If it is 2.5 you will have a Legacy BIOS.If it is 2.4 you will have a Legacy BIOS & the processor should be checked for 64 Bit compatibility.*If it has an SMBIOS of 2.3 or less its below minimum system requirements for Windows 10.

For Hãng Intel processors e.g. the G640 as shown, Google tìm kiếm Hãng Intel Ark G640. As the instruction mix is 64 Bit I am all mix lớn run Windows 10 64 Bit.

Boot Mode và Secure Boot State

For systems with Windows 8 or Later installed you will have sầu BIOS Mode and SecureBoot State shown. These technologies should be enabled where supported by the hardware.

This information doesn’t show if you are currently running Windows 7. For a Windows 7 install in all cases SecureBoot will be disabled (as its unsupported by Windows 7) & the UEFI Boot may also be disabled.

BIOS Version

You have sầu the System Manufacturer, System Model and BIOS Version/Date. You should compare this with the version offered by your Computer Manufacturer e.g. Dell, HP and Lenovo and Update.

Without the Lademo UEFI BIOS Version – Installation of Windows 10 may Fail!!!

See my dedicated guide on the UEFI BIOS which gives more detailed instructions on updating the UEFI BIOS to the lademo version.

Note if this is your sole computer bởi vì not save sầu changes to your UEFI BIOS settings until you have finished making the Bootable USB.

Original Equipment Manufacturer Licensing

Most systems from Dell, HPhường, Lenovo etc. come with some version of Windows preinstalled. This is known as an OEM license. Dell, HP.., Lenovo is the OEM and you are the End User. OEM licenses are designed khổng lồ be supported by OEMs on their hardware and as a result OEM licenses are non-transferable. OEM licenses are not meant lớn be sold to End Users without accompanying hardware.

If you have the following Microsoft Genuine Labels you have sầu a Windows 8.x/10 Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) License. This type of license has a Microsoft Digital Marker (MSDM) embedded in the UEFI BIOS. The MSDM contains a 25 digit System Locked Preinstallation Key which is compatible with Windows 10 Build 14393. You don't need to lớn know this key as it will automatically be input by the Windows 10 Build 14393 .iso and the correct Edition of Windows 10 will be installed. For those interested in more Details see my Windows OEM FAQs.

If you have sầu a Windows 7 Code of Authenticity COA affixed to lớn your system then you have a Windows 7 OEM License & your key is accepted by Windows 10 Build 14393 Installation Media but has khổng lồ be manually input. The COA contains your Edition of Windows 7 & 25 Digit OEM Product Key. Hint: take a picture of it so its handy for your initial Windows 10 Install.

To prevent the COA from fading the COA is likely residing in the battery compartment of Laptops and inside the computer cover of Desktops. Use your điện thoại thông minh khổng lồ take a picture of it before installation.

If your system is built by a much smaller company it will have a Commerical OEM System Builder License of Windows 10, Windows 8.1 or Windows 7. Hint: take a picture of it so its handy for your initial Windows 10 Install.


The Windows 10 Version 1607 Media Creation Tool is 17,881 KB in size:

If you right cliông chồng the Media Creation Tool and select properties:

Then navigate to the Details tab it will tell you the version:

Launch the tool và accept the user account control.

Scroll down then accept the License Agreement screen:

Select Create Installation Media for Another PC.

Do not select Upgrade Now

The tool is supposed to lớn automatically select the correct language, architecture & edition. You may wish to lớn check this in particular if you are running Windows 7 with English (UK). For Windows 7 English (UK) and English (US) weren't separate languages & Windows 10 unfortunately assumes that any English Windows 7 install requires a Windows 10 (US) iso.

I will use English (UK) as an example:

Unkiểm tra use Recommend options for this PC if you are needing another Edition (for another PC or it has made the wrong selection of Language):

Select your desired Language. I will use proper English (United Kingdom):

Select your Edition. In almost all cases this will be Windows 10.

The Windows 10 .iso is a 4 Edition .iso containing:

Windows 10 ProWindows 10 HomeWindows 10 trang chủ Single LanguageWindows 10 Education

"Windows 10" hence covers virtually all the Dell OEM Licenses for Windows 7, Windows 8.x và Windows 10 and most the Retail Licenses.

The Media Creation Tool also offers a Windows 10 trang chủ Single Language .iso if you select this option you'll tải về exactly the same 4 Edition .iso.

Windows 10N .iso is a 3 Edition .iso containing:

Windows 10 ProNWindows 10 HomeNWindows 10 EducationN

This is a variant of Windows 10 created khổng lồ satisfy Brussels bureaucrats i.e. is a European Commission submix of the Windows 10 Product Family without Media Player. It is rare even in European countries. Windows 10N và Windows 10 keys are not interchangeable.

In almost all cases you want a 64 Bit architecture. The 32 Bit architecture should only be used for under powered older computers (Early Windows Vista systems).

Once you've sầu made your select select Next:

Although the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool can create a FAT32 Bootable USB Flash Drive directly I prefer lớn download the .iso file và save it khổng lồ an external hard drive sầu. This way it is easy to lớn remake a bootable USB should something go wrong when attempting to lớn create the first one for instance files not copying across completely:

Select your location for the download e.g. in my case Downloads. Name your .iso accordingly và select Save:

It will take a while lớn download:

When done select Finish:

Ignore the message about burning the .iso lớn a DVD. DVDs are obsolete and a USB flash drive sầu should be used. Its faster to make the USB, install Windows from the USB và also a FAT32 formated USB is accepted by a UEFI BIOS with SecureBoot. A DVD may be rejected in many cases.

As you can see the kích thước appears lớn be different for Languages & Editions.

Some people are asking for MD5, SHA1, SHA256 codes to lớn verify their .iso however because the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool downloads files, checks them & then creates a .iso from them. There is no need to kiểm tra whether the .iso is from a complete tải về. Moreover because the .iso is physically created on your computer the MD5, SHA1 and SHA256 codes will be quality.

For those that went for direct Download links the .isos obtained are vastly different(& because they main .isos contain less Editions are slightly inferior…

On the next screen you will be given the option to “Upgrade” or “Clean Reinstall”.

To Clean Reinstall select Custom. The following steps will result in loss of data so cancel the installation & backup your data to an external hard drive or cloud storage if you haven’t already done so. I never recommend Upgrade installs.

In the next screen you should be shown your drive(s). If you don’t and have a blank screen as shown you will need khổng lồ select Load Driver… The need khổng lồ load a driver for a Windows 10 Installation is however very rare as Windows 10 Installation Media is kept up to lớn date và hence covers most hardware. For more details see Preparing and Loading Preinstallation SATA Drivers.

It is advised khổng lồ delete all partitions on the drive sầu. This includes any old Recovery Partitions which will no longer work after A Clean Windows 10 Installation or a Windows OS Upgrade. I will demonstrate a UEFI install on a 1 TB HSSD in an OptiPlex 7010. This lists the single internal SSD as Drive 0. The drive has an old Windows 10 install.

In most cases you will have a single Drive 0. Select the top partition, then select delete và then select OK at the warning. Repeat this for all partitions one by one until your system looks lượt thích this:

If you have multiple drive(s) you will see Drive sầu 0, Drive 1 và Drive 2…. và you will need to piông chồng the drive sầu you wish khổng lồ install Windows on. Obviously don't delete partitions on Drives you wish to lớn remain as Data Drives.

Installing System Drivers

Windows 10 has many, many drivers inbuilt particularly for Hãng sản xuất Intel hardware. Windows 10 gives basic functionality for most Network Integrated Controllers (NIC) and wireless cards.

For drivers Windows 10 doesn't have sầu inbuilt it often obtains them automatically via Windows Update. Let me give sầu an example. Here is an OptiPlex 7010 và here is a look at its Device Manager with a Windows 10 Clean Install. You can see that without doing anything after a few minutes all the system drivers are automatically installed… Pretty impressive!!!

There are some driver issues however…

Hãng Intel Management Engine Interface

One of the most common ones is the Intel Management Engine Interface driver that Windows 10 installs is old version & this causes a baông chồng screen when coming out of sleep & an incorrect shutdown often draining the system battery. This effects almost every system that has Hãng sản xuất Intel hardware and an SMBIOS version of 2.6 or later.

To kiểm tra the version right cliông chồng the start button & then left click Device Manager. Expvà system Devices and right cliông xã Intel Management Engine Interface. Then select properties. In the dialogue box left click the driver tab. Check the version:

The lathử nghiệm version of Hãng sản xuất Intel Management Engine Interface can be downloaded from Hãng Intel here.

You want lớn go lớn the ME_SW_MSI thư mục and then khổng lồ the production subfolder. You then want lớn launch the .exe and install as normal:

You can then once again kiểm tra the version installed in the Device Manager:


There have sầu also been Touchpad issues reported since the release of Windows 8 which seem to carry through onto lớn Windows 10. This can be resolved by a forced installation of one of the newer drivers via the Device Manager follow my guide Dell Touchpad Drivers.

Wireless Cards

Some have been reporting some instability with inbuilt wireless card drivers. For convenience I've listed Dell Wireless Cards by hardware IDs meaning I have some newer Windows 10 drivers in many cases ewer than Dell will list on your Drivers & Downloads page.See my guide Dell Wireless Cards.

Dell Quickset

You may wish lớn visit the page for your system and install Dell Quickset if listed.

Other Drivers

I've sầu found systems with the Hãng sản xuất Intel AMT SOL/LMS, Ricoh Card Reader or Free Fall Sensor require the Windows 7/8.1 driver lớn be installed.

If your system is new Dell may have some more up khổng lồ date Windows 10 64 Bit drivers which may be installed.

After an hour of having Windows 10 online you may wish to Cheông xã your systems Hardware IDs và if you have sầu any unknown devices you require drivers for ask on the Dell Microsoft OS Forum providing the OS Name, OS Build, system manufacturer, system model, BIOS version, SMBIOS version và the các mục of hardware IDs.
