  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

  3. Can´t Access Windows 10 Instalation Media from Startup

    Laptop: hp 15-b104sp

    SSD: Kingston SSDNow UV400

    My HDD seemed to be corrupt. Although I´ve managed through MS-DOS to copy the files I wanted to a USB Drive, I couldn´t access Windows nor any of the repair/recover options on UEFI.

    So, I´ve formatted it (through MS-DOS) and I bought and installed a new SSD drive in my PC (checked the compatibility), and created a USB Drive with Windows 10 Installation Media.

    When I boot the laptop, it doesn´t recognize this USD Drive.

    After trying this, I´ve created a boot drive with Windows XP and I can access the installation, but when it asks to choose the drive to install on, it only has the option for the USB drive that contains the boot. It doesn´t recognize the SSD.

    What else can I try to install Windows (any version) on my laptop?

    Installation media boots to command prompt

    I've just booted from known working install media to see exactly what it does when booting. The sequence of events is...

    1. Windows logo on a black screen
    2. circling dots appear beneath the logo
    3. light blue 'Please wait' screen with circling dots
    4. a command prompt window (very briefly)
    5. the initial Setup page appears

    Do you see steps 1-3? If so, it appears you have stopped at step 4, suggesting that something on the disc cannot be read.

    Does the disc boot properly in another machine? If so, try cleaning the laptop's drive lens then try booting from the disc again.

    If not, make new install media with Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, either as a bootable USB, on an ISO that you can burn to another disc. At Step 8 in Option One of this tutorial you can choose between making a USB or an ISO.
