  1. Windows 10 Home USB Installation


    I got an installation USB today at BestBuy. My rig is a Skylake i7 in a Kabylake ITX with an empty slot where sat a now damaged WiFi card. My RX 560 graphics card is in it now, and the two DIMMs are full, with 2x8GB DDR4, either 2400mhz or 3600mhz. There's a little SSD for the system and a big HDD for Gabe N' Friends.

    Within ten hours from noon today to about ten minutes ago, I began my ritual attempt to install, to a Kingston 128GB SATA3 SSD. I've attempted forty times from then to now. I've tried with no graphics card, tried it with one RAM stick, and left a hard drive disconnected from power and board. I've tried those all with and without entering the activation key when prompted. I've formatted the SSD to GPT for UEFI install, and formatted to MBR for BIOS legacy install. What's weird is that MBR formatting is rendered null and switched back to GPT whether or not I use UEFI or BIOS legacy. Either way, it always finished copying the files and quits getting them ready at 2%

    I don't want to do MBR because I don't want to do BIOS legacy install. I don't want that because the Bing search advice I take unseasoned is that UEFI installation will make those four partitions and that I should thus delete all existing partitions and install on unallocated space, just because I don't want to mess with partitions.

    For a while about five hours ago, I attempted to install on a 64GB primary partition made with the help of a calculator. It still did the same thing--copied the files, and quit getting them ready at 2%.

    I have two ideas. There's the optical drive, still connected to power and board. If that's not meant to be connected, I don't know why RAM would be an issue before that, but it might be in the same category as "don't connect to any other storage devices besides the target drive." Then, there's the CPU, which I hate having to reseat, as the fan is beautiful and massive, almost covering everything on the ITX. That's what would come before the RAM.

    Another idea is that Skylake isn't cool enough for Windows 10 anymore. If that's it, then I'm from a different universe, or this support is real screwy. Speaking of, I don't want to spend all this time rounding up hyper-threaded screws, so it better be the optical drive that's in the way.

    :)

  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
