The user experience

This section describes what users experience when they choose to reinstall Windows on their computer which involves partitioning or formatting a disk. In each phase of the deployment, we will illustrate what is likely to happen and how to mitigate errors when they arise.

There are eight phases you can have for this deployment type:

  1. Choosing the deployment
  2. Telling us where they are 
  3. Showing them the list of applications they keep or lose in the deployment
  4. Files and folders they can choose to backup
  5. Requesting additional storage
  6. Displaying a summary of their actions
  7. Running background checks
  8. The outcome of the deployment
