I don't think it will matter that much.I just ordered a new laptop and will be home in a few days. Windows 10 Home included, but i am not sure which version of windows 10, its either 1803 or 1809. Should i update it to 1903 before doing anything else, like installing games, apps and etc ?
The laptop is ASUS TUF FX505DT, so i have to update my bios before clean install my windows right ?Before you perform a clean install of the OS(yes you should do a clean install) you should make sure your laptop is on the latest BIOS update found off of your laptop's support site.
You can then move towards a clean install of the OS. Use Windows Media Creation Tools to create a bootable USB installer for the OS.
Mind sharing the make and model of the laptop?
Can i clean install without removing it ? If yes, is there any effect ?If you have no intention of ever using the manufacturer's recovery partition then it's fine. The Win10 installer creates a new one of its own.
If you download the step-by-step instructions I gave the link to there is a section that covers using the diskpart utility to completely wipe and reinitialize your drive during the reinstall. I do that when reusing a previously used drive. If it's a brand new drive I don't.
I will remove it then. Dude thanks for being helpful. I love you buddy!It's possible, but you definitely don't use the diskpart command then.
If the disk is not reinitialized then Windows will reinstall on the same partition it was on and, I believe, you will still get a second recovery partition created. It's been too long since I last did this to recall all the details, but you can do it, but most people don't.
