If you are talking about Windows 10....then, yes, there is a way.  Get a usb stickpen that is at least 4 gigabytes in size. Once you download Windows 10 onto it, you can re-install just like a Windows disk. (you must have a valid Key code to activate Windows) Here is the link.   https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

See:   Doing a Completely Clean Install of Windows 10


You will have to have a license key for the edition of Windows 10 (Home, Pro, etc.) that you are intending to install.  The latest Windows 10 ISO files now exceed 4GB since they include the material necessary to install any edition of Windows 10.  Snag a USB drive that has at least 8 GB of space and is an empty drive.
