I have a blank hard drive with os on it because I'm building a new pc. My school also offers free downloads of windows, so i want to somehow get the the os on my blank hard drive via download. How would I do this? Could I boot it up on a simple 8gb flash drive or would i need something bigger?
Well when you download windows your download the ISO. You don't install it from the Microsoft servers or anything. So you need a regular computer to download them to. Then once you download the ISO you either burn it to a DVD or you can use an ISO to USB program to copy the ISO to the USB drive and boot off of that.
