    Windows media creation tool error 0x80004005 - 0xa001a

    Hi, Since the Fall update I have had nothing but problems with a bootable USB drive. Windows media creation tool returns an error 0x80004005 - 0xa001a, which the internet seems oblivious too and the windows 7 USB/DVD download tool creates a drive which is
    none bootable.

    I spoke to microsoft who advised me to download the windows 10 ISO and use the windows 7 USB/DVD download tool to create the media but it failed to boot.

    I searched online for solutions as to why windows 7 USB/DVD download tool would not create a bootable USB drive from a windows 7 ISO and I was given directions to use Diskpart. This also failed.

    So does anyone have any solutions to fix the 0x80004005 - 0xa001a error with the media creation tool.

    I also tried both windows 7 and windows 10 USB Drive in 2 systems and neither would boot the windows install program.

    Thanks Baz

    Does the Media Creation Tool create a bootable USB or DVD

    It will create a bootable flash drive, not a DVD. Easiest way to be safe is to create the ISO then use Imgburn to create the DVD or Rufus to create the flash drive.

    If you're on a Windows 8 or Windows 10 machine, you can save the ISO with the Media Creation Tool and then burn it to DVD by right-clicking the ISO and selecting 'Burn Disc Image'.

    There is also an option to 'Open DVD Burner' in the Media Creation Tool, but I've never done it that way.

    When I want to completely wipe the drive, I boot with the DVD in the DVD drive, and with the boot order set to boot from DVD drive first so that it boots from DVD. If you just want to upgrade the current OS, you can just run setup.exe on the DVD/USB Flash Drive from desktop.

    Hello Jim, *Smile

    Option One in the tutorial below can help show you how to create a bootable Windows 10 USB with MCT.

    I would recommend to wait a few days though. Currently, Microsoft has pulled the latest Windows 10 TH2 version 1511 build 10586 ISO file. It should hopefully be restored soon once Microsoft fixes whatever issue for the reason they pulled it.
