A Quick guide to Clean install

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do a clean install for a computer:

  1. Backup Your Data: Before you start with the clean installation, it's essential to back up all your important data, such as documents, pictures, videos, and other important files, to an external hard drive or cloud-based service.

  2. Create a Bootable Media: You'll need to create a bootable media, such as a USB flash drive or DVD, to install the operating system. You can create a bootable media using the official installation media from the operating system manufacturer or use third-party tools like Rufus, Etcher, or UNetbootin.

  3. Insert the Bootable Media: Once you have created a bootable media, insert it into your computer and restart your system. You may need to change the boot order in the BIOS settings to make your computer boot from the bootable media.

  4. Install the Operating System: Once the bootable media has started, follow the on-screen instructions to install the operating system. During the installation process, you'll need to select the language, time zone, and other settings.

  5. Partition Your Hard Drive: After you've selected the settings, you'll need to partition your hard drive. You can either choose to create a new partition or format the existing partition. Be sure to choose the correct partition, as formatting or deleting the wrong partition can cause data loss.

  6. Install Drivers and Updates: Once you have installed the operating system, you'll need to install the necessary drivers and updates. You can do this manually by downloading the drivers and updates from the manufacturer's website or use an automatic driver installation tool like Driver Booster or Snappy Driver Installer.

  7. Install Your Programs: Finally, you'll need to install the programs you need. Install the essential programs first, such as a web browser, antivirus software, and media player, and then install other programs as needed.

  8. Restore Your Data: After you have installed all the necessary programs, restore your data from the backup you created in step 1.

That's it! By following these steps, you can do a clean install for your computer.
