How To Download and Create Bootable USB of Official Windows 10 [x64 / x86] (USB / ISO) for free from Microsoft

If you’re like me and you’re just sat around twiddling your thumbs, waiting for Microsoft to notify you on how to install Windows 10, there is an answer. Microsoft has a workaround if you’re just too damned impatient, and why wouldn’t you be after waiting close to a year for this upgrade?

The first thing you’re going to want to do is head on over to Microsoft’s official Windows 10 download page. This lets you bypass Microsoft’s wave-based invitation system entirely. On here you’ll find the option for two different versions of Windows 10 - the 32-bit and the 64-bit editions.

1. Go To Windows 10 Official Download

Nearly all of you are going to want to run the 64-bit version of Windows 10. If you’ve got a 64-bit capable processor then go with this. It means you’ll have access to larger amounts of RAM than 32-bit systems.

This will download a surprisingly small file; just shy of 20MB. Once it’s downloaded, run the file. It’s called MediaCreationTool.exe or MediaCreationToolx64.exe, depending on which version you grabbed.

2. Open Tool and the first thing you’ll see when you run it is a choice: Upgrade this PC now or Create installation media for another PC. The second option is just if you want to create a boot disk for another system, so go ahead and click Upgrade this PC Now.

All your files will be kept intact as this is an upgrade rather than a clean install.

If you want to perform a clean install, you can either do this after you have upgraded to Windows 10, or click Upgrade this PC Now and on the following screen click the text saying "Change what you want to keep". Here you can manually alter your Windows 10 install.

3. Now Windows 10 will begin downloading. The install file is around 3-4GB, so it’s going to a take a little while depending on your connection.

Once done, your Windows 10 download is complete, congratulations!
