  1. Windows 10 ISO creation problem...



    I'm trying to create an ISO file from the Microsoft website to build a VM using the media creation tool.


    First I tried a brand new 16 GB stick which after a while it told me was not big enough, so I got a new 64 GB one yesterday and it's just given the same error message.


    Surely it can't be bigger than 64 GB? Or am I doing something wrong?

  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

    I'm having trouble with that not seeing my 8Gb USB drive, even though my computer and another laptop has no problem with it and they say only a 4Gb drive is needed.
    I could burn an ISO to disk but the laptop I want to install it on only has USB.
    Any suggestions how I can do this using only the USB drive?

    Probably not a legit key though. The whole "use this dummy key to upgrade" thing kind of gives it away. If it was a legit key, you wouldn't need that. You'd just put the key in, and Windows 10 would upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. It might activate today, but I bet if you try to do a re-install in a few months and re-activate it won't. Heck, it will probably de-activate in a few months anyway, now that Windows 10 does a re-activation every few months, and if it can't re-activate after so many months it de-activates itself(maybe 3 months).

    Just to clear it up, I wasn't trying to be negative. The ISO links are nice to have in case you can't get the media creation tool to work for some reason. Like you only have a Mac, but just built your first gaming PC.

    Maybe, just as a suggestion, use the media creation tool to download the ISO with both, and upload that to Dropbox as well. That would be a great alternate source for it.

    I can actually look into hosting them myself as well for you. So you can put direct links in the first post to the ISO again instead of going through drop box.
