    Windows creation tool


    So my friends laptop that is running windows 7 died because the HDD failed. So I’m planning to swap it with a new SSD. My question is can use bootable usb that I created using media creation tool from other pc to fresh install w10 on the new SSD? Will it ask for any activation key?

  3. Windows Media Creation Tool Error 0x80070079-0xA001A

    Your USB thumb drive needs to be at least 8 GBs.

    The error code 0x80070079-0xA001A means that the tool doesn't have permission for it to run. For us to assist you, we suggest that you
    follow the simple steps listed below:


    • Right-click on the Media Creation Tool.exe.

    • Press Properties.

    • Click on General.

    • At the bottom, click on Unblock.

    • Press Apply, and then OK.
    Let us know how it goes and if you need further assistance, feel free to post back.



    You can also download the ISO first using the Media Creation Tool, then create a bootable copy. Yes, you can use it to perform clean install.

    If Windows 10 was already installed and activated on your system, just proceed to perform a direct clean install as described in the following articles.

    Problems upgrading to Windows 10 with the Media Creation Tool.

    Hi Abel,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am sorry to know that you are facing issues with Windows 10.

    I do appreciate your efforts and time, and will assist you with the issue.

    To guide you in the right direction, I need more information from the computer by answering the following questions:


    • What is the make and model of your computer?

    • Which operating system are you currently running on your computer?

    • Is you’re your anti-virus utility software disabled?

    Your reply is very important for us to ensure a proper resolution.

    Meanwhile I suggest you to try the steps provided below and
    check if it helps.

    Method 1

    Perform a clean boot.

    A clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update or when you run a program in Windows
    10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista. You may also troubleshoot or determine what conflict is causing the problem by performing a clean boot.

    Clean Boot:


    Notes


    • You must log on to the computer as an administrator to be able to perform a clean boot.

    • Your computer may temporarily lose some functionality when you perform a clean boot. When you start the computer normally, the functionality returns. However, you may receive the original error message, or
      experience the original behavior if the problem still exists.

    • If the computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from following these steps. We strongly recommend that you do not use the System Configuration utility to change the advanced
      boot options on the computer unless a Microsoft support engineer directs you to do this. Doing this may make the computer unusable.
    I suggest you to try the steps provided in the link below, in order to perform a clean boot on your computer.

    I also suggest you to refer to the link below for more information about downloading Media Creation Tool.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.
