What's the difference between Ready to Play and Custom Installation?
Each time you purchase a new Shadow subscription or reset Shadow to factory settings , Shadow installs Windows 10 for you and lets you choose one of two configurations: Ready to Play or Custom Installation.
Ready to Play lets Shadow configure Windows for you. If you'd like to configure your privacy settings, OneDrive, and other setup options, choose Custom Installation. You can always modify these settings after Windows is installed.
Ready to Play
By choosing Ready to Play, you will not be required to configure any other Windows settings or sign in to a Microsoft account, but you can set this up later.
Choose Custom Installation to have Windows guide you through the setup process. To learn more about Windows 10 installation, click one of the settings below, or read through the remaining sections in this article.
If setup takes longer than 30 minutes or you need assistance with the setup process, contact a Support Hero.
