  1. Remove USB Installer - Start Over Again


    Okay, so I am at a total loss here. I am detailing the current problem and all debug steps taken so far below. I am working on a fresh build. Computer has an m2 (SN850 500GB) and HDD. I configured the computer correctly to install windows from USB. Installed Windows 10 successfully onto the m2. After windows updates, I turned off the computer, and plugged in the HDD as it was unplugged for the windows install. Computer would not boot again. Unplugged HDD. Computer still will not boot. Bios hangs before Windows boots. BIOS stopped recognizing the m2. Switched the m2 over to a different port and the problem persists. Plugging the USB back in wouldn't work either. As long as the m2 was in the computer, it would not load the Windows installation utility. I cleared CMOS, this did not help. I wiped the M2 with UBCD, and used a hardware check utility built into the motherboard. M2 passed with no issues Removing the m2 and plugging in the HDD allows the computer to boot the windows installation utility. In the interest of eliminating the USB drive as the issue, I used a new USB drive and put Windows 10 installation utility on that. Booted from the USB drive no issue. Installed Windows no issue. However, if I remove the USB drive from the computer and attempt to restart, the computer hangs before Windows loads. Reinserting the USB drive allows the computer to boot back to the installer, where Windows can be installed again. Rebooting with the USB drive in the computer and not removing it allows Windows to boot up again without re-installing. I must now add for context, this is somewhere near the 30th PC build I've done, probably past that. I've been building PCs since Windows XP. I swear I'm not incompetent. What am I missing here? And to answer the obvious, no I am not installing Windows onto the flash drive. It's not even an option. And any other storage device is diconnected at this time. To answer the less obvious, I have checked boot priority and available boot devices. Every option other than the USB and m2 is disabled. Disabling the option for USB boot device after installing Windows does not fix the issue.

    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
