Microsoft Windows 10 is well and truly here. According to Microsoft Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella, it marks a “new era” for personal computing. It remains to be seen as to whether consumers and businesses around the world will agree with Nadella’s assessment of the operating system, but it’s safe to say that this is Microsoft’s most ambitious and potentially impressive Windows release till date.
We understand that the majority of users would have downloaded Windows 10 directly through ‘Windows Update’ as part of the free-of-charge upgrade process when it was available, but now that it isn’t, and for those in need of an official Windows 10 ISO file, we are here to help you out.
WHERE TO DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 PRO ISOMicrosoft has clearly attempted to make sure that all bases are covered as far as installation options are concerned. Although the company started initiating pre-downloads of the operating system to registered PCs approximately 24-hours before the official launch in late July last year, it does appear to recognize that some consumers would require an official ISO image of the Windows 10 platform whenever the need to manually install or reinstall the OS on a formatted machine arises. The ISO image will of course allow for the creation of a bootable USB flash drive or DVD, to serve as an installation source.
Best of all, you don’t need any product key to download the ISO media file from Microsoft. Just about anyone can download it officially from Microsoft as long as they have an Internet connection. Though it is important to note that genuine Windows product key will be required for activation purposes during or after installation.
- As part of this ISO file offering by Microsoft, the company has also created a relatively small check list of what’s actually required before beginning the download:
- An active and reliable Internet connection.
- Enough storage space available on the computer being used to download the ISO.
- 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.
If all of those criteria are met, then here’s what you need to do.
