Part 1: Take notes

Before we begin the installation, I’d like to make the following points:

  • You should have a working grasp of Windows, as the installation process is not always straightforward.
  • This procedure is compatible with both Windows 10 and Windows 11.
  • If the computer already has UEFI, you should verify System Information before proceeding with the installation. If you do not already have UEFI, you must first install it.
