Reverting back after 10 days: Backup and WinPE bootable disk

If more than 10 days have passed since you upgraded to Windows 11, you can still go back to Windows 10 by following these steps. It is important to note that reverting back to an older version of Windows without a backup can result in the loss of your personal data, so it is crucial to back up your files before proceeding.

Backup your personal data

To start, ensure that all your important files are backed up to an external drive or cloud storage. This will protect your data in case anything goes wrong during the downgrade process. It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to preserving your valuable files.

Create a WinPE bootable disk

Once you have backed up your data, you will need to create a WinPE bootable disk. This is a tool that allows you to boot your computer and perform system recovery operations. You can use software like iSumsoft Cloner to create a WinPE bootable disk on a USB flash drive.

Revert back to Windows 10

With the WinPE bootable disk ready, insert it into your computer’s USB port and restart your system. Make sure your computer is set to boot from the USB drive. Once booted into the WinPE environment, use iSumsoft Cloner to restore your Windows 10 backup to your computer. This will overwrite Windows 11 and revert your system back to Windows 10.

After the restoration is complete, remove the WinPE bootable disk and restart your computer. Your system should now boot into Windows 10, and you can continue using your computer as you did before the Windows 11 upgrade.

Please note that these steps should only be attempted if you are comfortable with the technical aspects of the process and understand the risks involved. It is always recommended to seek professional assistance if you are unsure or unfamiliar with the procedures.

Clean installation of Windows 10 without a backup

If you don’t have a backup and it has been more than 10 days since you upgraded to Windows 11, you can still install Windows 10 from scratch using these steps. While it is always recommended to back up your data before downgrading or performing a clean installation, these instructions will guide you through the process without a backup.

First, you’ll need to download the Windows 10 ISO file from the official Microsoft website. Make sure to choose the correct version and edition that matches your Windows 11 installation. Once the ISO file is downloaded, you’ll need to create a bootable USB flash drive. You can use software like Rufus to create the bootable drive with the Windows 10 ISO file.

Next, insert the bootable USB flash drive into your computer and restart it. During the startup process, you’ll need to enter the BIOS settings and change the boot order to prioritize the USB drive. Save the changes and exit the BIOS settings. Your computer will now boot from the USB flash drive.

Follow the on-screen instructions to install Windows 10. You’ll need to choose the language, edition, and enter the product key. If you don’t have a product key, you can still proceed with the installation, but some features may be limited until you activate Windows 10.

After the installation is complete, make sure to install all the necessary updates and drivers for your hardware. You can do this by going to the Windows Update settings and checking for updates. Once the updates are installed, you can then restore your data files from your backup or external drive, and reinstall your applications.

Remember, performing a clean installation of Windows 10 will erase all the data on your computer, so it’s important to back up your files before proceeding. If you’re unsure about any step in the process, it’s always a good idea to consult with a professional or seek assistance from Microsoft support.
