Re: Windows installation with NVDA

That is f12, because f8 gives you the windows startup menu for how to start windows.

For drive selection on boot you need f12, and USB will only show if setup in BIOS as a boot device.

Well it depends what you are doing.
You need the media creation tool and once done you make a usb stick with it.
Then you can just run setup and install or have media tool upgrade the pc.
If you mean with a usb stick from scratch, you need to start the
system while holding down f8.
Then with sighted help select the right boot device, then after a
little keep hitting windows control enter and narator starts.

but how do i do it?
If you already have Windows 10 then you can either use the Update Assistant,
which just entails going to the *Windows 10 Download Page* ( ) , then
activating the Update Now button, or *Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or
Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file* (

There is no need to install Windows 10 afresh if all you're trying to do is
get a new feature update.  Either of the above noted methods work, and are
accessible using Narrator after they've had a few moments to initialize.
Narrator can be invoked via CTRL + Windows Key + Enter.
