    reinstalling windows ten from my MAC


    I upgraded to Windows 10 (Lenovo T410 Win 8) when prompted by microsoft. The upgrade seem successful but Initially the system ran very very slow and then finally BSOD error code #OxOOOO225. I tried starting in safe mode, restarting, restarting again but after forever it returns to BSOD. Now the problem. The only working computer I have is a MAC. Microsoft suggests I create a USB boot disk to reinstall Windows 10. I downloaded the ISO file on the MAC but can't find any info or tools on how to create the USB boot disk from the MAC. Any suggestions?

    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
