Yes. You can store it on another device

Go to Microsoft website and download your version of windows 10 via iso file. NOTE: it’s free to download not free to use

Download a program called Rufus. Run to create bootable media to the usb/sd card of your choosing

Boot up your new computer with the usb and go through setup.

Put in your activation OEM number when asked

Continue through installation letting it update as needed.

Wait what, shouldn't the disk be in while I install it? And the oem is windows 10 so how was I supposed to download It?

Nope. You can toss the disk straight into the trash.

MS has a tool that downloads and formats Windows onto a USB drive.

And the oem is windows 10 so how was I supposed to download It?

But it's a disk. I don't understand what you mean, are you saying to download it for free or copy the disk then throw it out?

Either way. I didn't have to use the media creation tool the other day. Don't think it even gave me the option. I prefer to download the iso file and then create a bootable media.

Ok , burning ISO to USB is the best way , but I was curious,I just tried this method as it does't seems reliable,I checked my own mistakes, maybe the USB space is not big enough, I didn't know what was the problem when I downloaded it ,I need to reuse an empty USB stick ,
