How to install Windows 10 on a Dell laptop

How to reinstall Windows on a laptop

For various reasons, it is sometimes necessary to reinstall Windows. And sometimes, if it is necessary to do this on a laptop, novice users may have various difficulties associated with the installation process itself, installing drivers or other nuances that are peculiar only to laptops. I propose to consider in detail the reinstallation process, as well as some approaches that may allow you to reinstall the OS without any hassle at all.

Reinstall Windows built-in

In my opinion, this is the best method, but it is not always possible to use it. quite often, when I come to a computer repair call, I see that everything on the client’s laptop, including the hidden recovery partition on the hard disk, has been removed in order to install a pirated Windows 7 Ultimate, with built-in driver packs or subsequent installation of drivers using Driver Pack Solution. This is one of the most unreasonable actions of users who consider themselves “advanced” and thus want to get rid of the laptop manufacturer’s programs that slow down the system.

An example of a laptop recovery program

If you have not yet reinstalled Windows on your laptop (and did not call the would-be masters) and it has exactly the operating system with which it was purchased, you can easily use the recovery tools, here are the ways to do it:

  • For laptops with Windows 7 of almost all brands, in the Start menu there are recovery programs from the manufacturer, which can be identified by the name (contains the word Recovery). By running this program, you can see various recovery methods, including reinstalling Windows and restoring the laptop to its factory state.
  • Almost on all laptops, immediately after switching on, on the screen with the manufacturer’s logo, there is a text below which button you need to press in order to start recovery instead of loading Windows, for example: “Press F2 for Recovery”.
  • On laptops with Windows 8 installed, you can go to “Computer Settings” (you can start typing this text on the Windows 8 start screen and quickly get into these options). “General” and select “Delete all data and reinstall Windows”. As a result, Windows will be reinstalled automatically (although there may be a couple of dialog boxes), and all the necessary drivers and preinstalled programs will be installed.

Thus, I recommend reinstalling Windows on laptops using the methods described above. Various assemblies like ZverDVD have no advantages over the preinstalled Windows 7 Home Basic. And there are plenty of shortcomings.

Nevertheless, if your laptop has already undergone inept reinstallations and there is no longer any recovery partition, then read on.

How to reinstall Windows on a laptop without a recovery partition

First of all, we need a distribution kit with the required version of the operating system. a CD or a USB flash drive with it. If you already have one, then great, if not, but there is an image (ISO file) with Windows. you can burn it to a disc or create a bootable USB flash drive (see detailed instructions here). The process of installing Windows on a laptop itself is not very different from installing on a regular computer. You can see an example in the article about installing Windows, which is suitable for both Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Drivers on the official website of the laptop manufacturer

Upon completion of the installation, you will have to install all the necessary drivers for your laptop. In this case, I recommend not using the various automatic driver installers. The best way is to download laptop drivers from the manufacturer’s website. If you have a Samsung laptop, go to, if you have an Acer, then go to, etc. After that, look for the “Support” or “Downloads” section and download the necessary driver files, and then install them one by one. For some laptops, the order of installing the drivers is important (for example, Sony Vaio), there may also be some other difficulties that you will have to deal with yourself.

After installing all the necessary drivers, you can say that you have reinstalled Windows on your laptop. But, once again, I note that the best way is to use the recovery partition, and when it is not there. installing “clean” Windows, and not “assemblies”.

Hello, I want to download the Windows installer to a USB flash drive and install it on another computer. Can you tell me where the Windows installer is located on the laptop?

You can’t do that. Those. if the laptop is with the original OS, then the installation files are there on a hidden partition, but it is better not to install it on another computer from there. Download the ISO image of the required version of Windows from the official Microsoft website

As I understand it, you have Windows 7. There is another way:
1. Download the original ISO in the required edition like this:
2. Install (the key will pass during installation).
3. When activation fails (and it may not take place after installation for OEM keys), use phone activation. it works.

Hello. There is a Lenovo g580 laptop with win 8 preinstalled. How to move to win 10 while keeping the license? Thanks in advance.

The second way is to view the key from UEFI using a program like ShowKeyPlus, download the ISO image (or make a bootable USB flash drive) from the official Microsoft website, use the key during installation.

There are tons of hidden partitions on the laptop. Which ones can be deleted? I want to install win 10 clean

It depends on what sections are there. In general, ideally, do not touch all partitions at the beginning of the disk, i.e. only systemic and subsequent. The one that you have 10-30 gigabytes hidden (if any) is a backup copy of the system from the manufacturer, it can come in handy:
And if there is no such thing and only 100-500 MB partitions, then in general everything can be demolished, they will be created anew.

the screen is broken on the laptop and the keyboard is faulty, is it possible to use the key from the win 7 OS installed there on another laptop without an OS?

You can try, but not the fact that it will work. But: if you use this key when installing Win 10 on another laptop, then the probability is higher.

And in fact, what is the recovery section? that is, I understand correctly when buying a laptop, the disk is already partitioned and this section contains all the information for recovery?

For most laptops. yes, as you described.

Hello. I have a laptop with win preinstalled. 8.1. I need to reinstall on Windows 10 with editing disk partitions. Those. I have a 1tb HDD. I need to split one partition for the system, the second for the file cleaning system. Tell me how to do it. On laptops, there was no experience with reinstallation, so I ask for help, I’m afraid to screw up.
And, yes, I forgot, if possible, so that the license is still preserved

In general, the plan in your case is this, most likely it will be optimal (but still at your own peril and risk, I can accidentally do something different from Honor for your specific installation, but in 95% of cases everything will be ok):
1. Boot from a USB flash drive with a 10 (be sure in EFI mode, if you see an error that installation is impossible, since the GPT disk means booted into Legacy), at the stage of choosing a partition for installation, we ONLY format the partition with the current 8.1, do not touch the other partitions. we do not break anything in any way.
2. Select this formatted partition, click “next” go through the entire installation process.
3. After installation, already in Windows itself, we separate the necessary space in “disk management”. see

Why do I recommend not to do anything else at the first step: because independent actions to separate at this stage can lead to the fact that 10-ka sticks “in the wrong place” system partitions, or spoil the factory recovery partition, which may come in handy.

Thanks for the help. And from the disk I cannot install?

Yes, you can. I’m just writing about a USB flash drive, because they usually bet from them, but there is no difference.

Thanks for the answer. But there is one more question. I can say that at the beginning of the installation it is necessary to change the size of the logical disk. Still, it’s better not to do this, as I understand it? What are the consequences, do not tell?

Why is it mandatory during installation? Believe me, it is more practical and less likely to unforeseen things, it is better to do it already in the installed Windows. It’s as simple as during installation. just shrink the partition in disk management, and format the freed up area as a “file bin”.
If you start deleting / creating partitions at the installation stage, the problems may be as follows: automatically created partitions in places you do not need (which will interfere in the future and which cannot be prevented from being created), problems with the factory recovery image.

Hello Lenovo laptop. without a floppy drive, with two USB ports. Yesterday I reinstalled the OS, at first I could not install it, it gave an error about a GPT format disk, according to your article I transferred it to MBR. the system got up, but I did not immediately notice that not a single USB port was working at all. and now I can not install the driver. and the drive is wired, does not see. and now I don’t know what to do, I want to reinstall it, through the BIOS I see both the USB flash drive and the floppy drive, the OS boot menu comes out, but when you select the desired OS variation, it just loads what is already installed, that is, the reinstallation does not go, throws it out. I’m sorry that it’s so messy, I hope that I clearly described my problem, otherwise I’m not an expert thanks for the answer.

And then, I succeed, I set the desired values, and after loading, the BIOSa values ​​must be returned to = initial =. Otherwise, the OS will not boot. something like this

I write file recovery or normal download

And figle’s sense, under the 15th inspirions you will not find a good half of the drivers for win7.

Jubiki, no way. Under the 15th Inspirions on the office site, firewood is only under win10. To make the hardware work correctly under the seven, you will have to carry firewood from third-party resources, piece by piece. Partly at the realtek, partly in general on the left foreign sites with a virus in the kit (for a total cleaning of the roots and registry, after installation, it is mandatory!). And firewood for the chipset (so that the USB 3.0 ports are plowed), in general, almost by an empirical method of scientific poking.
In my case, it turned out to be a driver for a line of HP laptops, in fact, built on the same AMD chipset. I had to spend a fair amount of time shoveling through English-language forums in order to find everything necessary for the full functioning of win7 on hardware, which does not seem to officially support it.
