Windows 10 Installation Setup & Deployment - Quick Assist RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have followed the post by Tony MCP - in the above forum, but, as the post is quite old I am trying to re install QA on a more recent version of Windows. To re install it do I need to get the exact same ISO of the windows version I am using (down to the OS decimal) as I am receiving an error when I run DISM about 'package not found'. I had edited the script to match the file names I restored from a WIM file.

  • Use this tool to install a clean copy of the latest version of Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro, and remove apps that you installed or came pre-installed on your PC. You’ll have the option to keep your personal files.

    If you’re looking to upgrade your existing Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 PC, go to Get Windows 10 to learn more about upgrade options. If you’re on an Enterprise or Education edition, the tool won’t work for a clean installation. Please see the Volume Licensing Service Center for more information.

    Before you begin
    Review the following important notes:
    Using this tool will remove all apps that do not come standard with Windows, including other Microsoft apps such as Office. It will also remove most apps installed by your PC’s manufacturer such as your manufacturer’s apps, support apps, and drivers. You will not be able to recover removed apps and will need to manually reinstall them later if you want to keep them.
    You may lose your digital licenses, digital content associated with applications, or other digital entitlements for applications as a result of using the tool, which may impact your ability to use apps you paid for or app-related content you paid for. For this reason, we don’t recommend using this tool on any PC where you wish to ensure all of your applications and application-related content (including Microsoft applications such as Office) remain properly installed and licensed.

    Please make sure you have the following:
    An internet connection to download the tool and the Windows 10 image. Internet service provider fees may apply.
    Sufficient data storage available on the computer you are clean installing. Note that the download and image is over 3GB.

    Check these things on the PC where you want to clean install Windows 10:
    Make sure you meet the system requirements. Learn more at Windows 10 Specifications.
    If you just purchased a new device that includes Office 365, please see Download and install Office 365 Home, Personal, or University on your PC for information on reinstalling Office after the clean installation of Windows. If you have Office 2010 or earlier, you will need to locate your Office product key. For tips on locating your product key, check Find your Office 2010 product key or Enter the product key for your Office 2007 program.
