    And what about the system reserved partition should I format it or delete it for a clean install ?

    Once you have downloaded the ISO from MS, use the RUFUS tool to create a bootable usb drive of Windows 10. And then at the setup screen choose to delete all the partitions of C drive ie., system reserved partition, recovery partition etc. Be careful with data drives btw.

    Either way is fine :) Just that we're used to saving ISOs in a folder using MCT (atleast me) and then use Rufus to create a bootable usb.

    Rufus lets you to choose, what settings to use, like MBR (notebook) or UEFI (desktop).

    MBR (Notebook) UEFI (desktop)? :thinking:

    Ontopic:
    There is not any need for using any 3rd party tool to create an BIOS/MBR and (U)EFI/GPT bootable usb install-medium, just format it FAT32 and extract the iso to it's root.

    Yes, I was always unable to boot UEFI on notebooks, which claim to support UEFI, I always had to use MBR on USB. Rufus helped a lot, MCT not so much, not at all actually. :joystick:

    Personally, I've always been able to boot in UEFI mode in every uefi-capable computer, no matter if it's a desktop or a laptop :dunno:
