    Trying to install Windows 10 on a new PC using USB


    Hi all,


    I'm building a PC for someone and the last thing I need to do is install the OS - which has turned out to be the most headache-inducing part of the build.


    I went and downloaded the media creation tool and set it up on a new flash drive. BIOS reads the flash drive as bootable, but when I go to install Windows, it can't find the device. I've tried reformating it in disk management [deleting any pre-existing partitions and formatting it back to FAT32] to no avail. I've used Rufus to create an image and put that on the drive, to no avail. I've gone into BIOS and turned on UEFI compatibility, still nothing. The mobo is flashed and everything else is set up. This is just the latest after I've already struggled to boot it from an older external HD which it saw but wouldn't boot from.


    I'm at my wit's end and have no idea what to try next. I'd appreciate any insight.

    :)

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?

    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
