How to Install Windows 7 for Beginners

Posted: December 4, 2013 in Uncategorized

This step by step tutorial is to demonstrate the basic steps for installing Windows 7 and is aimed at beginners and above.

To start  Windows installation, insert the CD/DVD and boot/reboot your computer, it should automatically begin to run. If not then make sure the drive is set to first boot in the BIOS, see this Windows 7 BIOS guide for more info.

Load in your Windows 7 DVD and boot it. It will now load the setup files.

Click Install now.

Check I accept the license terms and click Next.

Image

Click Upgrade if you already have a previous Windows version or Custom (advanced) if you don’t have a previous Windows version or want to install a fresh copy of Windows 7.

(Skip this step if you chose Upgrade and have only one partition) Select the drive where you want to install Windows 7 and click Next. If you want to make any partitions, click Drive options (advanced), make the partitions and then click Next.

It will now start installing Windows 7. The first step, (i.e. Copying Windows files) was already done when you booted the Windows 7 DVD so it will complete instantly.

After completing the first step, it will expand (decompress) the files that it had copied.

Image

The third and fourth step will also complete instantly like the first step.

After that it will automatically restart after 15 seconds and continue the setup. You can also click Restart now to restart without any delays.

After restarting for the first time, it will continue the setup. This is the last step so it will take the most time than the previous steps.

Type your product key in the text-box and click Next. You can also skip this step and simply click Next if you want to type the product key later. Windows will run only for 30 days if you do that.

Select your desired option for Windows Updates.

Image

Select your time and click Next.
