Windows 10 Update Issues...

I got locked in one of those update loops. You know what I mean, probably. My Windows 10 would start an automatic update, then fail, and then reset itself to a previous version. This would happen all of the time.

I managed to use one of the methods on this link to successfully do an update:

Now, here is the reason why I am making this post. In case I want to ever do a completely fresh reinstall of Windows 10, I want to know how to do this because the CD (DVD, maybe?) and all I have is the ("OEM"?) sticker with the associated ID numbers.

There is a media creation tool for windows 10 available here
https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/soft...load/windows10
there's a step where you select other media this will allow you to create a disk or USB for installation

There are also some unoficial ways to do so which I personally prefer.

WARNING THESE METHODS ARE NOT OFFICIALLY FROM MICROSOFT AND CAN CARRY SOME RISK

there's a useful tool called ISO Downloader created by a website called heidoc. it allows you to download the image necessary to create bootable media for many versions of windows.

you then simply need to pick your favorite media creation app
I personally use Imgburn and Rufus. (version 1.4 seems to work best new one has given me problems)
