Install Windows from a USB drive

Modern computers don’t have DVD drives anymore. To install Windows on a new system you need to place the Windows installation media on a bootable USB drive. To prepare the bootable USB drive you need a working computer with Windows.

Create the bootable USB media

Install Windows

  • Restart the computer and enter into the BIOS settings
    • On Toshiba laptops press the F2 key while the Toshiba logo is shown
  • Set the USB drive as the first item in the boot order and save the new BIOS settings
  • When the computer boots from the USB drive follow the instructions to install the Operating system
  • When the computer automatically reboots during the OS installation, remove the USB drive to let the machine boot from the hard drive and complete the Windows configuration.
