This tutorial will show you how to create a recover media for your system or other computers. This is important to carry out just in case one of the followings issues happens to you.

  • Windows does not allow you boot in recovery mode.
  • Your hard disk is corrupted.
  • You no longer have a recover drive in your laptop.

How To Create Windows 10 Recovery Media

Step 1 ) First go to the following URL software-download windows 10 to learn more about downloading Windows 10. This site also provides a link to download the following tool Media Creation Tool.

Step 2 ) Select the following option Create installation media. This will allow you to create your recover media to use later on. Make sure you keep it in a safe place.

Note: You can choose to Upgrade this PC now option. But for this tutorial the other options is selected.


Step 3 ) Enable the following option Use the recommended options for this PC. The language, architecture and edition will be selected for you by default as per your current installation.


Step 4 ) Choose which media you want to use for your recovery. In this example I selected ISO file.

Note: You can choose which ever option you like. Remember if you choose USB flash drive option, make sure it is 8 GB or more in size. (Nowadays this should not be an issue)


Step 5 ) Choose where you want to download Windows 10 ISO file and give it a proper file name. The following image shows you the file name Windows10-64bit entered for the ISO file.

Note: You can always rename the file once it is downloaded to a different name.


Step 6 ) The following windows shows you the downloading process. Depending on your Internet connection it will take a bit. The size of the file is nearly 4 GB.


Step 7 ) Once the file is downloaded make sure you burn the ISO file into a DVD. If you chose to download into a USB memory stick then the process is different.

That is all you have to do to have a copy of Windows 10 in a DVD or USB memory stick. And hopefully you never need to use it.
