If you’ve come from other versions of Windows say Windows 8.1 and want to perform a fresh install of Windows 10, your PC/desktop needs to meet some hardware requirements first. There are various System requirements for installing Windows 10.
Minimum System Requirements for Installing Windows 10
- Processor:1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
- Hard drive size: At least 32GB or larger hard disk
- Memory: 1GB (for 32-bit systems) or 2GB (for 64-bit systems)
- Graphics card: DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
- Display: At least 800×600
- Internet Connectivity: Internet connectivity is necessary to perform updates and to download and take advantage of some features. Windows 10 Pro in S mode, Windows 10 Pro Education in S mode, Windows 10 Education in S mode, and Windows 10 Enterprise in S mode require an internet connection during the initial device setup (Out of Box Experience or OOBE), as well as either a Microsoft account (MSA) or Azure Activity Directory (AAD) account. Switching a device out of Windows 10 in S mode also requires internet connectivity.
