  1. Found win10 on a flash drive. Should I install it?


    Ok I’ll try to be brief. Bought a graphics card secondhand. Mysterious thumb drive with windows 10 install files was in the bottom of the box. I have a windows 7 pc with good enough specs to run win10. However when I tried to run this win10 installer to see what happened it came up in French. Should I proceed and then will I be able to change the language later in the install? Will the installer ask me for a product key anyway, meaning I may as well pay for a version that installs in English? Let me know what y’all think of this. Thanks.

    Installing Win 10 x64 using a flash memory

    As long as the flash drive is MBR, with a FAT32 partition marked as active. Then you can copy and paste all the files and folders from a mounted Windows 10 installation ISO file to it and it will be universally bootable.

    CD to flash drive

    Hi Pam,

    There are several ways to copy your pictures from the CD to the Flash drive. One of which is by using the shortcut keys to copy and paste it.

    We suggest following the steps below:

    • Insert the CD and flash drive to your PC.
    • Use Cortana and type File Explorer then click it.
    • Choose This PC.
    • Open the CD drive.
    • If all the pictures are in a specific folder, press Ctrl + A
      on your keyboard to automatically choose all the pictures then, press Ctrl + C to copy it.
    • Afterwards, Open the Flash drive, choose the location where you want to copy the pictures then press
      Ctrl + V to paste it.

    Let us know if you need anything else.

    Found win10 on a flash drive. Should I install it?

    How To Format A Write Protected Flash Memory ?

    ¿You already tried this one?...

    Run CMD


    1. diskpart
    2. list disk

    Then in the 3º step, put the correct number of disk in the list for the usb flash (if it's listed in disk 3, then you'll have to write select disk 3).

    2. select disk #
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    with that commands you will format the flash drive in fat32, if you have a large drive you can select also "format fs=ntfs" in step 7.

    good luck!
