Microsoft Azure Dev Tools - How to install Windows using your download




STEP I - Download Windows


1) Go to Microsoft Azure Dev Tools

2) Look for "Software"

3) Find Windows 10 (consumer editions), version 1903 - DVD

4)  Click the "view key" box on the right. Copy the serial number to a text file in case you cannot open the page again.

5)  Click on "Download" on the bottom right to download the software.

6) You'll have Windows installer media in ".iso' format. Now you need to create bootable media with your installer.




STEP II - Create your installer media.


1) Now you will create an installer media using your downloaded file. To do this, download and install the Windows 10 Media Installation tool

2) Follow the instructions on the Windows 10 Media Installation Tool page  - expand, "Use the Tool to Create Installation Media"

Once you install the program and run it, you'll be prompted to find the ISO that you downloaded before. Navigate to find it.




3) Once you have selected the ISO file, you'll be prompted to either select DVD or USB device as your media type. 

IMPORTANT: If you are using a USB drive, please use one that is 8GB in size or larger. In our experience, anything less than 8GB has problems.




STEP III - Install Windows

1) Now restart your computer with your prepared installer media (either USB or DVD). 

You may have to change your boot-up options within your BIOS to boot to USB drive or DVD.

3) I usually select the defaults and choose a strong password.

4) Activate your Windows installation using the Product Key from Azure.
