  1. Clean Windows installation stuck


    Hello. I've been trying to install Windows for 3 days now. I finally got it to burn to a DVD but now it gets stuck at "Getting files ready for installation (95%)". I gave it plenty of time the first attempt by letting it run overnight, but it was stuck there. I did do alot of googling and found some tips such as "unplug unneeded USB devices", "disable secure boot", etc, but none of those helped. (My bios did not have any secure boot option. For reference though, it is set to legacy+uefi boot"

    I'm installing it from a disc. The disc has a newly downloaded Windows 10 iso burned onto it. The SSD im installing it to is brand-new and just installed a few days ago.

    Any help is very appreciated. This has been a pain for the last few days.

    Edit: Forgot to mention that I was able to smoothly install ubuntu from a DVD a few days ago. Because of this, I doubt it's an issue with either my SSD or my CD-ROM. And this probably isn't important, but I am using the custom install option and choosing to install to the remaining partition leftover after Ubuntu. (Plenty of space though. 400+ GB)

  2. Clean Install Workaround for Vista

    You may remember this news story on techPowerUp! a couple of days ago relating to the lack of clean installs when using the Upgrade Editions of Vista, which required an old OS to be installed. However, Paul Thurrott has managed to find a workaround for this issue, which ironically lets users do a clean install Vista without any previous version of Windows, albeit a little tedious. Here are the steps:
    • Boot from the Windows Vista Upgrade DVD as normal
    • When prompted for a product code, leave this blank
    • Select the version of Vista you have purchased and let Vista install
    • When you boot to your desktop for the first time, run the Vista setup from Windows
    • This time enter your product key
    • When asked whether you want to do an Upgrade of Custom install, select custom and choose a clean install
    • Windows will now install for a second time and you should be able to activate it
    Remember, these steps are only advised for use in order to achieve a clean install of Vista, it is only legal to use the upgrade editions if you have previously purchased the appropriate version of Windows.

    Windows Vista Clean Installation

    To do a clean install on a fresh hard drive with Vista on an upgrade disc, you have to follow certain steps. Buying a full install CD would've been easier, but using the upgrade disc only adds more time, so it's not that big of a deal.

    Follow the instructions here to do a clean install with an upgrade disc: http://www.vistarewired.com/2007/02/28/perform-a-clean-install-with-a-vista-upgrade-disc
