    Can I reinstall windows 10 from USB drives?


    How much hard drive space do I need to use ideally for a good games storage from the Microsoft store? Installing a new one and its got 2 terabytes this pc. But dunno whether its gonna fit cause of all the red wire cabling that I been told not to remove by someone we unplugged which was disuse for now then plug it back in then blowed on it but now it needs to have windows 10 installed i don't know to do with it the power button bounces that aint a problem to me right now right now the problem is where will I be buying a good usb drive for windows 10 to go on because funny enough i done that once to boot into it but it wouldn't stay booted i got it to copy to the drive rooted windows then it boot but now it crashed cause i got done for something i'm not allowed to discuss but im recognised on here from before. And I think i just need to carry a normally. I'll look like some people but the more clever argument seems to reinstall windows and concentrate on gaming and helping my local community when i get on my nhs group which is open so the nhs lent me a hand i just had some stuff returned to me. so now I believe i got it right but don't know. I don't know. Microsoft windows version 20h2 (build.09042.985) Thank you Ant - - - Updated - - - How much hard drive space do I need to use ideally for a good games storage from the Microsoft store?

  3. Windows 10 USB boot

    Hi there, am not a windows 10 expert. I have a pc in the bedroom on windows 10, I messed up the bootloader trying to fix the xp on that system.

    System wont boot, trying to repair via win 10 usb installer.

    Downloaded the media creation tool to install windows 10 installer on usb stick. Not compatible with a host of usb sticks I have. Tried the usb sticks that others use, but I think they use rufus; as the media creation tool by win 10 does not detect the usb stick.

    So quick question, the win10 machine i am trying to repair the bootloader is a win7 upgraded to win10.
    If i were to use the usb win10 installer to "repair installation" does the version of the iso downloaded via the media creation tool matter?

    There is three options:
    Windows 10
    Windows 10 Home
    Windows 10 N

    Also is there a step by step instead of using rufus as I want to try an alternative method of creating a usb win 10 installer. Preferably with more compatibility.

    System is a asus sabertooth 990 (r2?) with AMD phenom X 6.

    Also is there any other software I can load onto the usb that can repair the bootloader easily?
    That would be the ideal alternative. Thanks

    Can I reinstall windows 10 from USB drives?

    Installing windows off of a USB stick

    Step By Step from vista:
    From admin cmd prompt

    1. diskpart
    1a. list disk
    2. select disk 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive

    xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (d being your vista cd and e being your usb stick)

    And that's it, boot off your usb disk
