    Cannot install an older version of Windows 10


    Hey y'all,


    I've had a very difficult time over the past two days simply trying to get an older, more compatible version of Windows 10 for my laptop.


    I need to install Windows 10, so naturally I went to download the Media Creation Tool. I ran it, and upon booting up the laptop, the install went perfectly, no issues whatsoever. Unfortunately, my GTX 1060 would get detected, but no matter what driver I install, it ALWAYS gives me an Error 43. I searched this up online, and as it turns out, lots of people with NVIDIA graphics cards are actually having a problem with with Windows 10 2004 2020 May Update, so I decided to use an older version of Windows. Apparently 1909 has the issue of NVIDIA graphics cards not working properly as well, so I've decided to go with Windows 10 1903.


    Since there is no official place to download the ISO, I used RUFUS to both download and "burn" the ISO to the USB. This happened successfully. Upon booting my laptop with the USB, the install started off fine, but soon gave me an error code: 0x80070570, meaning there are missing or corrupt files. This is the part at which I have been stuck on for the past two days. The "burning" ISO to USB part always works, but when I install on my laptop, it fails with that EXACT error code. I've tried 1909 and 1903, and it still doesn't work. I've tried formatting the USB fully as FAT32, and decreasing the install.wim file in win10iso/sources/ and it still produces the same error. I read online somewhere that it could be a memory problem, but then upon creating the USB again with the Media Creation Tool, it installs perfectly on my laptop just the graphics card driver don't work.


    The problem here, is that the Media Creation Tool is doing something that RUFUS is not. I just need to do whatever Media Creation Tool does, but with the ISO of an older version of Windows 10. I don't understand what is going on. I've done my research and am still as confused as I was before.


    Sorry for my rant, but it is quite frustrating as to what is going on. I just want to install an older, more compatible with my graphics card version of Windows 10.


    Thanks a lot,

    Nathan

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Swapping to an older version of windows

    Is there still an official way to drop back to an older version of windows, I honestly don't mind using a 3rd party way. If possible, can you list step by step instructions or a link to an easy to use website. Thanks.
