  1. Driver_pnp_watchdog error on clean install of windows 10


    I installed a new nvme ssd in my computer and I'm trying to reinstall windows 10. I currently have linux mint installed and now trying to dual boot windows.


    I used the media creation tool from MS to create a bootable USB drive. When I boot from the USB drive, I get the typical startup screen "republic of gamers" (it's an Asus thing) and the spinning dots. That goes for 10 minutes or so and then I get BSOD with driver_pnp_watchdog as the error code.


    And I'm kind of stuck. I can't boot into any kind of safe mode or existing install on this computer. I just put the USB drive in, turn the computer on, and get BSOD... No menus, no options, nothing.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Brian

  3. 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.

    Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    I have bought a legit "Windows 10 Pro" key of a key website. It is legit since i'm currently using it for over a year now. I currently have Windows 10 Pro installed on my PC and I want to do a clean install. I just can't find the windows 10 Pro download in the tool. But if i could use a windows 10 pro key with a normal windows 10 install, I'll be good to go.
