  1. Failure to install windows 10 from a USB recovery drive


    Last week i began experiencing persistent blue screens on my PC. After a day or so of this it finally died and brought me to the recovery screen for Windows. When I try to do automatic repairs it says there was a problem and my PC has to be restarted. I installed a fresh recovery of windows, everything was fine.


    The next night however, my computer crashed and brought me back to the recovery screen. Again, i made a new recovery USB and did a clean install of windows. The next day it crashed again leaving me the blue recovery screen. I have unplugged every drive that was in the computer and put a totally separate and clean drive in; as well as took out my graphics card and half of my ram.

    Now when trying to use my recovery drive it takes 3 hours of it “installing” just to tell: “There was a problem reseting your PC, no changes were made”. At this point i have no idea what the problem is, i have gone for hours browsing forums and threads trying to find answers but nothing has come up so far. If you can help I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance,

    -Nathan Lang

    Installing windows off of a USB stick

    Step By Step from vista:
    From admin cmd prompt

    1. diskpart
    1a. list disk
    2. select disk 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive

    xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (d being your vista cd and e being your usb stick)

    And that's it, boot off your usb disk

  4. Failure to install windows 10 from a USB recovery drive

    Windows 10 USB boot

    Hi there, am not a windows 10 expert. I have a pc in the bedroom on windows 10, I messed up the bootloader trying to fix the xp on that system.

    System wont boot, trying to repair via win 10 usb installer.

    Downloaded the media creation tool to install windows 10 installer on usb stick. Not compatible with a host of usb sticks I have. Tried the usb sticks that others use, but I think they use rufus; as the media creation tool by win 10 does not detect the usb stick.

    So quick question, the win10 machine i am trying to repair the bootloader is a win7 upgraded to win10.
    If i were to use the usb win10 installer to "repair installation" does the version of the iso downloaded via the media creation tool matter?

    There is three options:
    Windows 10
    Windows 10 Home
    Windows 10 N

    Also is there a step by step instead of using rufus as I want to try an alternative method of creating a usb win 10 installer. Preferably with more compatibility.

    System is a asus sabertooth 990 (r2?) with AMD phenom X 6.

    Also is there any other software I can load onto the usb that can repair the bootloader easily?
    That would be the ideal alternative. Thanks
