Setting up windows on NVME
I just purchased an 8700k and Asus Maximus Formula X or whatever and am looking for memory. I have a 970 Pro 1TB and I'm wondering what the best way to set it up was...
I don't have a working optical at the moment unless I have one in one of my other cases which I may have, but I do have USB Drives and installing via USB would be faster anyways. I just want to get everything ready for when the parts arrive.
Also, is there a way to download Windows 10 Pro, the LATEST release so I don't have to go through all the updates? Last time I reinstalled ( which was like 4 years ago or so ) on my x400 1TB, when I connected to the internet just for updates and nothing else I got a worm. Self replicating and annoying to remove but I removed it. I just don't want to spend time on removing viruses for a fresh install so I'd rather get an up-to-date ISO or have a way to build it.
I'm honestly considering just copying the 1TB drive I currently have straight over so I don't have to worry about reinstalling, however with all the drivers, etc.. I'd rather have a fresh install. I'd rather just be able to load all of the drivers into the ISO or USB drive so on install they install automatically. Any ideas on software, etc..?
Is there any software available where I can generate a Windows 10 x64 Pro USB Drive with preloaded drivers for the NVME, and maybe other stuff? I'm going to start downloading the drivers for the board shortly to ensure I have everything ready so I can move it to the flashdrive after it is loaded up with Windows...
Any help is appreciated.
