    How to create a Windows 10 boot USB using XP?


    Hi,


    My Windows 10 laptop is unable to load windows (due to an automatic update) and is in a failing continuous loop trying to repair. None of the recovery/ repair options are working. I have read that I may be able to repair windows (or at least enter it) using a boot CD/USB. I only have an old XP machine at my disposal. Microsoft has decided that their new boot disc is over that of a standard DVD, so I only have a USB option, and have managed to download to ISO file. The install.wim file is also over 4gb and so getting the file onto a FAT32 USB is also difficult. I have tried several programs (using my XP machine) to make a bootable USB but they all seem to fail (presumably because of the 4gb issue). Microsoft has a MediaCreationTool (1809) to do all of this for me but it doesn't seem to work on the XP system ('not a valid win32 application').


    Does anybody know how to get around these issues or have a version that works on XP? I am able to copy the files from the ISO file but aren't sure how to them make the USB 'bootable' via a manual way.


    Cheers, Damien.

    :)

  2. 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

    Multi-bootable USB

    Hey guys from TPU, couldn't find any specific thread pertaining to the question asked on title. As mentioned, I'm trying to create a bootable USB, but with many specifics boots available.

    I've been trying to create one with multiple boot device including one that enables me to run Windows 10 directly on the USB Thumb Drive but to no avail.

    The list of bootable images i'm trying to create are

    1. Windows 10 (A full OS running from thumb drive)
    2. Windows 10 ISO (Bootable disk image for fresh install)
    3. MemTest86+

    Have tried YUMI or UUI from the website USB PenDrive Linux but as this is my first time, i don't know how am i screwing up or am doing it right.. Anyone got a rough idea on a step by step guide? Thanks!

    How to create a Windows 10 boot USB using XP?

    USB install XP onto old laptop

    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310994

    Download the boot disk setup, create all 6 boot disks. Insert XP CD, and run off the boot disk, and follow the on screen steps. Then the boot disk will access the XP CD to finish up the install.

    I dont think there is a way to install XP via usb if your computer does not support usb booting in the first place.
