Find the link for the “Offline installer”
If you’re having problems with your internet connection, or you just want to install Windows 11 without having to go through the hassle of downloading it, you can do so by using the “Offline installer” link. This link can be found on the Microsoft website.
Download the installer
If you’ve downloaded the Media Creation Tool, simply double-click the installer to get started. If you’ve downloaded an ISO file, you’ll need to burn it to a blank DVD or copy it to a bootable USB drive before continuing. How you do this varies depending on which ISO file you downloaded and what tools you have available.
Once you have the installation media ready, boot from it and follow the prompts to get started. On most PCs, you can access the Boot Menu by pressing a key (often F12 or F10) when the first screen appears. This key varies by manufacturer, so if you don’t see anything, check your PC’s documentation.
If you’re installing from a bootable USB drive, select your language preferences and then click “Install now.”
Run the installer
If you’ve downloaded an ISO file, you’ll need to copy it to a USB drive or DVD. To do this, you’ll need a blank USB drive with at least 8 GB of space or a blank DVD (and a DVD burner). If you don’t have one handy, you can create bootable media from a friend’s computer as long as it’s running the same version of Windows that you want to install.
Once you have your bootable media, insert it into your computer and restart it. Make sure that your computer is configured to boot from USB or DVD. For most PCs, you can do this by hitting F2 or F12 when the manufacturer logo appears on-screen and selecting the boot device from the menu that appears.
On some PCs, you may also need to change the boot order in your BIOS settings so that your computer knows to look for bootable media in the right place.
Once your PC boots from the install media, Follow these steps:

To enable BitLocker encryption on drives other than drive C:, see Enable BitLocker protection for operating system drives. You might also see an option here labeled Drive options (advanced). If so—and if not already selected—select this option but don’t make any changes just yet; we’ll come back here soon 9)Click Install now 10) Follow directions that appear on screen as Windows installs
