    I plan to replace the HDD of an old Sony Vaio AIO computer with a 250GB SSD . At the same time I also want to do a clean installation of Windows 10 in the new SSD . However the Sony Computer's motherboard uses a Legacy Bios. Will the Sony computer boot from a Windows 10 installation USB prepared using windows media creation tool . I prepared the USB using another computer that has a UEFI bios. How to make this USB bootable from Legacy bios ? Tks

  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

    USB HDD: IN BIOS

    Hi AJAY, in modern BIOS (UEFI) it is normal to have USB devices listed, such as USB HDD without drive being plugged in.

    In older Legacy BIOS, a drive would have to be plugged in for it to be listed in BIOS, but not no londer . . .
