Is there a way to do a clean install of windows through BIOS because all the youtube tutorials do it by using a media creation thing. When i plug my usb flash drive in, it says i have to format it but ive been told to not format it. What do i do? im not experienced with computers and just want to reset my pc because im having some issues on it. Any help would be appreciated

Is your system a "pre-built" system, say from Dell, HP, etc.

If so, and the system is currently booting normally, you can likely go in and do a "reset" of the PC to "straight from the factory" condition (at least in terms of software).

Q1: What PC/laptop/etc. do you have?

Q2: You said you're "having some issues on it. " In just 2 or 3 sentences describe, in a general sense, what your problems are. I'm asking this only to see if your current problems might be severe enough to stop you from doing a factory reset.
