    Windows 10 installation from bootable usb failed


    Hi there!

    I have an old version of windows 10 installed on my desktop pc, and I've downloaded the new .iso update from microsoft website and successfully managed to install this new version of windows 10 on my laptop which was also running on an old version of windows 10, from usb.

    I used Rufus to burn the iso file into my usb flash, and make it bootable and not with GPT/UEFI, I set it to MBR/BIOS because of what I saw in disk 0's properties in Disk Management

    But when I start my pc and press the Delete key to open BIOS setup and then set the first boot priority to my usb flash and then press f10 to save and exit, it doesn't work. It just loads my own old windows 10 like nothing has changed.

    I have tried another usb flash and also plugging them into different usb ports by the way it's a really old desktop pc going back like 10 years ago, so all the ports might be usb 2.0, but I'm not sure doesn't work either.

    Does anyone know how to help me out with this? Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Multi-bootable USB

    Hey guys from TPU, couldn't find any specific thread pertaining to the question asked on title. As mentioned, I'm trying to create a bootable USB, but with many specifics boots available.

    I've been trying to create one with multiple boot device including one that enables me to run Windows 10 directly on the USB Thumb Drive but to no avail.

    The list of bootable images i'm trying to create are

    1. Windows 10 (A full OS running from thumb drive)
    2. Windows 10 ISO (Bootable disk image for fresh install)
    3. MemTest86+

    Have tried YUMI or UUI from the website USB PenDrive Linux but as this is my first time, i don't know how am i screwing up or am doing it right.. Anyone got a rough idea on a step by step guide? Thanks!

  3. 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
