    2) download Rufus, plug an USB flash drive and set Rufus as on the home page screen:
    https://rufus.akeo.ie/?locale=en_US
    click on the little disk icon on Rufus and point to the downloaded iso file
    let Rufus copy the installation files on USB flash drive

    3) press F2 booting your laptop, check on BIOS if UEFI is enabled, if not, enable it

    enable F12 boot menu under BOOT tab too

    then press F10 to save and exit

    exit again to close command prompt
    7) proceed with windows 10 installation
