  1. Win10 install


    I've been unsuccessful installing Win10 as a VM on a linux host virtual box. When I purchased the Win10 from Amazon so I assume its a good legit copy it came as a usb drive install.


    Unfortunately, this is a pain with VirtualBox because it will not install from a USB port. I read about many work arounds but most straight forward seemed to be to download a win10.iso disk and install from using the product key I purchased...but...


    Windows activation says its already been installed. When I work through the many options for help from MS I occasionally get to the point where they say they have located and fixed the problem just login and we are good right? Well trying to login blows up, hangs, or gives the most annoying error message ever of "Something went wrong. Try back later".


    Is this a product of using the downloaded win10.iso with my purchase product key? How do I get past this? I've called MS... its a stupid phone system that logs me off after not helping.


    I need some suggestions, I don't do IT for a living and rarely install windows if I can help it, so I'm sure I don't know many of the tricks. Help!

  3. Windows 10 infinite restart black screen


    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
