  2. Reinstall Windows 10 using a USB Flash Drive

    My Dell 8900 XPS had the motherboard go out on it. So I just had the motherboard swapped out today with the exact same motherboard. When we fired up the computer, Windows 10 seemed to start to load.......but after some spinning dots......I was given a page
    that said "Something is wrong with your PC. It needs to be restarted. It will be restarted." Or something like that. It then got caught in this loop where it will shut down, restart again to the same point, then shut down again. I thought........alright....Ill
    just reinstall the operating system. I made a USB disk with Windows 10 on it. The disk works fine in another one of my computers so I know its fine. I put that in my ailing computer and set the BIOS to boot off the USB drive. The computer continues to shut
    down. Its shutting down no matter how I set up the BIOS. So the Windows 10 disk isnt helping.....any ideas?

    There are no activation keys for the free Upgrade; instead, it is activated automatically when you do the in-place upgrade from an existing activated Win7/8/8.1 install. IF your machine has already had an activate Win10 version running on it, then when you do a reinstall from the USB, just skip the activation screen and it will later activate automatically.

    Did you install the exact same version of Windows 10 that was on previously? Home, Pro, N, Single Language....
