New to Framework

I just preordered my new framework laptop diy I ordered it with windows. my question is will window come preinstalled or will I have to install it?

I want to run linux and have windows not installed on it but have it as a back up. thank you for your input/help

For the DIY if you order windows I believe it comes on a USB stick, not on the drive. Once they’re closer to shipping there should be quick-start guides for DIY on

DIY editions come with a windows activation key, but you have to install the OS yourself (a USB drive is not provided)


thank you so much for the help
