    Trouble Installing windows 10 PRO over Windows XP Using USB Drive


    I have a DELL Laptop that came with WINDOWS XP and I just purchased a Sealed Windows 10 PRO USB installation drive. I set up the laptop BIOS to boot from the USB port. Upon startup the screen shows that files are being loaded. Then I get a screen to choose either Windows Pro 32 or Windows Pro 64. I select the 32 bit option. Next, I get a screen WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER telling me that Windows failed to start.What could be wrong?

    :)

    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
