    Windows 10 Installation Problem by USB


    Hi Guys,
    I am currently running on Windows 7 32-bit version. I Wanted to upgrade my OS to windows 10 64-bit.
    I have downloaded windows 10 ISO and successfully created a bootable USB.
    I want to Dual-Boot With Win 7 & Win 10. So i want to keep both OS.


    Now here"s the problem..
    I Booted with my USB and the Win 10 Setup also was working. I Completed entering the date and key board options
    and the product key.

    Now After completing entering information,it presents me with two options
    1 Upgrade (Keep all user file and OS)
    2 Custom (Keep all user file )

    As I want to keep my current OS , i choose the 1 option. Then it says me that windows is started using the setup files
    and to remove the USB and restart the computer normally and the setup screen will automatically come and then re-insert the USB to install Win 10.

    But when i restart the computer after removing the USB the system boots into windows 7and I am not getting the
    Win 10 Installation screen. I Am really confused*sarc .


    Please Post solution for this.*cry*cry
    Sorry for the long intro*Smile.

    :)

    Windows 10 installation usb not recognized by computer

    Hi,

    I guessing that your machine is mostly current hardware... in particular the motherboard...

    Newer motherboards are UEFI Bios capable and may be configured that way by default... How you install Win 8-10 varies by whether the motherboard is set for UEFI or Legacy, and also how the flash drive and SSD are configured...

    I suspect your used SSD may be formatted as a MBR drive... If so, it will not work on UEFI BIOS... It needs to have everything deleted and initialized as a GPT drive...

    The flash drive you purchased should be compatible with UEFI Bios, but again there may be a trick involved... Selecting it as a boot device in Bios may not be good enough...

    You may need to select your machines Boot Options at Startup with F2, F9, F11, F12, ESC, DEL, or whatever it uses...

    The flash drive may be listed twice... Once as a Flash Drive, and again as a UEFI Flash Drive...

    I don't think you have gotten far enough to get to the point you may get an error concerning how your SSD is formatted...

    If you were to decide to not use UEFI Bios, but Legacy, you would need to select just the Flash Drive...

    If you select the wrong type of flash drive for the way the machine is setup or the Flash Drive is formatted, you will in fact get boot errors...

    Windows 10 installation usb not recognized by computer

    Hello,

    It's possible that there is a problem with the USB since other USB drives are working fine. To assist you with your concern, we suggest that you download the
    Media creation tool on a working computer to create an installation media.
    You can refer to this
    article
    for reference.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

    Windows 10 Installation Problem by USB

    First, what product key are you using for Windows 10? Second, do you have a separate partition created for Windows 10?

    If you want to dual boot, then you will need two separate software licenses because you will be running two separate versions of Windows. Do you have two separate software licenses (Product Keys)?

    To set up dual booting you will want to pick the custom install option after booting from the Windows 10 USB and then point it to an empty, NTFS formatted partition on your hard drive to do a new clean install to.

    In order to activate that install of Windows 10, you will either need a unique retail Windows 10 Product Key - or a previous in place upgrade from Windows 7/8/8.1 to Windows 10 performed on that computer that was previously activated by Microsoft.

    Really do not understand why MS does not just remove that "Upgrade" option from PE.
    Upgrades are always done from Setup within a qualifying system, thus from a USB boot that screen is superfluous and confusing.

    The upgrade option is there to help novices trying to upgrade their existing Windows version. When you select upgrade it will tell you to reboot, load your previous Windows version and start setup from there. We already know that, but a novice doesn't.

    Windows 10 Installation Problem by USB

    Before doing a major install/upgrade or partitioning, it's always a good idea to have a backup. However, the greatest chance of losing your current OS or data is human error and telling Windows 10 to install to the current OS partition by mistake. Other than that, installing to a separate partition is one of the least likely operations to fail and cause you to lose something.
