How to Boot From Usb Windows 10?
- Step 1: Insert the USB Drive into Your Computer – The first step is to insert the USB drive that contains your desired Operating System into your computer’s USB port. Once it is inserted, ensure that it is securely connected and will not become disconnected during the boot process.
- Step 2: Enable Boot from USB in BIOS Settings – The next step is to enable booting from USB in BIOS settings. To do this, restart your computer and press the appropriate key for entering BIOS mode before Windows can load. This key varies depending on your computer manufacturer but usually involves pressing F1, F2, F12 or Del immediately after powering up your PC. Once in BIOS mode, navigate to the “Boot” tab and look for an option called “Enable Boot from USB” (or something similar). Select this option and then save and exit BIOS settings by pressing F10 or whichever key is displayed onscreen when exiting.
- Step 3: Select Boot Device in Boot Menu – Once you have enabled booting from USB in BIOS settings, reboot your computer again and this time press the appropriate key for entering the “Boot Menu” before Windows can load. Again, this key varies depending on your computer manufacturer but usually involves pressing F8 or Esc immediately after powering up your PC. Once in Boot Menu mode, select the “USB Storage Device” option which will allow you to select which device you want to boot from (in this case it should be the one containing your desired Operating System). After selecting this device just sit back and wait for Windows 10 to finish loading.
Booting from a USB drive using Windows 10 requires some technical knowledge but is relatively simple once you understand what needs to be done. All that needs to be done is inserting the desired operating system into a USB port on your computer followed by enabling booting from a USB in BIOS settings and then selecting it as a boot device in the Boot menu before finally waiting for Windows 10 to finish loading. With these steps, anyone should now feel confident about being able to successfully boot their PC using a USB drive running Windows 10!
