Installation :: Creating Multi Windows USB Installer

Sep 25, 2015

I have been trying to create a USB that has Windows 7 to Windows 10 for convenience if I ever need to install any of them again. From what I have googled myself there is ways of doing it up from XP to Windows 8.1. How to go about this??

Installation :: Can't Boot USB Drive With X64 Windows Installer

Aug 22, 2015

Whenever I try to install a 64 bit Windows 10 copy from a flash drive, I get stuck on the 4 blue squares, with no white dots spinning. Then after about 10 seconds the PC restarts. I have tried the official way with the media creation tool, I have tried just downloading the ISO and using a third party bootable USB maker, I have tried ISO's from pirate sites (yes, I know, not the best solution) but none of those worked. Every time I tried a different method I always fully formatted the USB drive. Oddly enough the 32 bit version worked once or twice but even that doesn't work anymore. My PC specs are quite good so I really don't know what's the issue. Btw im running a 120 GB AData SSD and a 1 TB Seagate hard drive.

Graphic Cards :: Blurry Text On Secondary Monitor In Multi-resolution Multi-DPI Setup

Nov 16, 2015

This is probably the most painful issue I have with Windows 10 right now (and likely previous versions as well, but I didn't have a multi-monitor setup back then).

The monitors I have are as follows: 3840x2160 (4K UHD) monitor with preferred DPI: 144 (150%)1920x1080 (Full HD) monitor with preferred DPI: 96 (100%)

Whenever one of these monitors are set as primary, all desktop applications displayed on the secondary monitor (doesn't matter which) has blurry text. Exceptions are the Windows Store Apps like Windows Store and Microsoft Edge, along with the Taskbar/Start Menu, the Taskbar/Start Menu settings screen, the Taskbar context menu, and the desktop context menu which passes the DPI test with flying colours, with crispy text on both monitors (occasionally a DPI switch bug gets in, but I can mostly ignore that). The problem is, as you can probably guess, is that >99% of the applications I use aren't Windows Store Apps.

Here are some screenshots. The "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" text is what the text should look like while the Visual Studio 2015 text is an example of the text most desktop apps get. The blurry image is what happens when the UHD monitor is not the primary monitor. Attachment 48493Attachment 48494 Note: Both of these screenshots came from the 150% DPI monitor so it's best viewed at that (144) DPI level. The 96 DPI monitor is similarly affected.

Things I've already tried: Reinstall the graphics driver. Did this multiple times in fact for unrelated reasons.Reinstall Windows 10 (through Reset This PC recovery option). I did this for also unrelated reasons but it definitely doesn't fix this issue.Use the XP Explorer "fix". Merely worsens the problem. Adjusting Clear Type options. Alleviates the issue a bit but see next point.Disabling Clear Type on the affected monitor. The text obviously sharpens, but it's painful to read and a close inspection of the text reveals the issue isn't solved at all, only mitigated slightly.Replacing the video card. I swapped this in with my older GTX 560 Ti but it's obvious the problem remains. Both it and my current card are NVIDIAs though, so it's vaguely possible the drivers or the cards themselves are the cause. I don't have an ATI/AMD card (that still works, at least) to test the setup and every Intel iGPU I have either has only one monitor output or is incapable of handling UHD resolutions.

Things I won't try: Setting both monitors' DPI to 96. Text would become microscopic considering the UHD monitor's actual size.Use the text resizing feature instead. I'm going take a wild guess that this is not monitor-specific and would cause everything on the HD monitor to be far too large to the point that I'd rather unplug it.

Looking for multi-resolution, multi-DPI, multi-monitor setup with or without this issue? The text is painful to read on whichever is the secondary monitor right now, and is extremely apparent whenever the background is dark.

Installation :: Both USB And DVD Installer Hang At Initial Splash

Mar 27, 2015

yesterday I downloaded the 10041 ISO from the Windows 10 Technical Preview ISO March Update - Microsoft Windows.I installed by mounting the ISO into a VirtualBox and enjoyed having a look around. In fact I like it so much at my initial impression I decided to move into a dual boot system.

I have a 250gb SSD as my C: drive so I partitioned it and created a D: of 80GB for the Windows 10 preview.I then tried creating 2 different USB installers... one Rufus MBR for legacy BIOS... and the second using the microsoft USB/DVD installer tool. I also burnt a DVD. In all cases I used the very same ISO that I mounted sucessfully inside the VirtualBox yesterday.Each one of the 3 installers I created seemingly hangs at the initial black splash screen with the 4 blue windows in the centre. It goes no further and believe me I waited 20 minutes on one of them.

BTW.... I tried opening the ISO in WINISO and then mounting to BD ROM drive. Then selected the setup.exe and away it goes just like setting up on the VBox ... but then it get to a screen which suggests I need to install a different language pack to the one already installed, so I immediately realised this route is trying to upgrade my Win 7 which I don't want... so I aborted.

Netgear USB Wireless Router - Windows Installer Error 1603 Notification

Sep 21, 2015

I have a new Netgear USB wireless router I want to install. When I attempt to run the Netgear Windows10-version installation software for the Driver, the installation crashes with the "Windows Install Error 1603" notification. I cannot figure out what this means, except something to do with the Installer being unable to load the driver. The router IS rrecognized in Device Manager, but with a yellow warning that "Windows could not load the driver".
EVERYTHING else on my desktop is working just great, not a problem anywhere.
Netgear Live Chat support is stumped; they told me to get another unit. Well, I have done that already! The strange thing is that BOTH these routers are INSTANTLY recognized by my laptop running Windows 10 just like my Desktop is. The problem AIN'T the router! Something in Win 10 on my Desktop isn't right, and I need to find out what to do to fix it.

Installation :: Will Media Creation Tool Create USB Installer With Version 1511?

Nov 15, 2015

I am running Windows 10 Pro x64 that I installed as a full version (not from the free update, I purchased the full edition from Microsoft).Whenever I get a new OS I like to do a clean install so I used the Microsoft Media Creation Tool which I downloaded from this page. I used the Media Creation Tool to install the OS (wiped and created new partitions, installed the OS, etc.).

Now with this nightmare update they just released (Version 1511) I am having SO many issues. I would like to do another fresh install of this new version.If I use the Media Creation Tool again to create an USB installer will it contain this latest version (i.e. I won't have to go through the whole update process again)? Or does the Media Creation Tool only create a USB installer that contains the "base" operating system which will required updates all over again?If not, how can i create an installer for Version 1511 so that I can avoid the pain of updating?

Installation :: Creating A Bootable USB When Only Have Contents Of ISO

Aug 1, 2015

It's possible you might have the contents of the ISO but not the actual ISO image itself on HDD.It's still possible to create a bootable USB using purely MANUAL commands for this example assume Disk nr is 7 and the USB stick is on drive H. The files from the ISO are in say folder WINDVD on drive E here's what to do.

1) open CMD as administrator



4) SELECT DISK 7 (remember our example above)





9) EXIT (don't close the cmd prompt though)

10) CD E:WINDVDBOOT (again from example contents of ISO are on drive E)


12) After 11) finishes - takes 1 sec approx. copy the entire contents of directory WINDVD to the USB stick as is - copy contents in same folder layout as on the disk - don't have WINDVD as the high level - copy CONTENTS so ist folder on USB stick will be BOOT.

13) now you've got a bootable USB.

Installation :: Clean Install - Creating Necessary Partitions?

Aug 6, 2015

I have upgraded my Windows 8.1 system to Windows 10 through the Windows update app and have created an installation media USB stick. I want to clean install, something I am very familiar with, but not since the new uefi, gpt, legacy etc. that I'm not familiar with. If I do a clean install and delete the entire disk, Windows will create the partitions and install the necessary "data" to run the computer correctly? I don't need to save the data on the hidden partitions that are present now?

Internet Drops When Multi Tabbing?

Aug 3, 2015

I updated my PC to windows 10 on the 29th , and for the 1st few days i had no issues what so ever. However now, whenever im say Playing a game and watching youtube or netflix my net will drop and can only be fixed by a restart. It "seems" ok if I am just doing 1 thing at once, say on this very forum for example, but if i opened a few windows now and started streaming something it would for sure drop. My internet is 100mb fiber optic, and all other devices connected to my hub are fine (PC is wired connection, this is the only thing having a issue, i have a wired xbox one which is fine, and wireless works perfect.)

I've tried ipconfig/flushdns - did nothing
I've tried swapping my settings to google (, - did nothing.
I've even tried turning off firewall as i saw someone say that could cause this issue - did nothing.

I know i could just roll back to windows 7 and that would probably fix everything, but i really like windows 10 and would rather fix it if possible.

Create Dual / Multi Boot System?

Sep 18, 2015

I had Win7 and did the free upgrade to Win10.

Before the upgrade I was smart enough to do a complete system image of Win7.

1. If I disconnect the Drive that Win10 is installed on and reinstall Win7 on a different drive, can I use the system image to recover Win7 back to the state it was before the upgrade?

2. Reconnect the Win10 drive and and boot up the system, will system ask which OS I want to boot up with at that point or will there be a conflict?

It's not that I don't like Win10 given I just upgraded on Thursday, September 17th and I need time to fully go thur all the operations and functions. I want to get a reasonable working knowledge and understanding of the Win7 OS, till I do I want the ability to keep and use Win7.

It took me quite some time to migrate from XP Pro to Win7 because I created a dual boot system for that purpose and I do not want to be FORCED cold turkey to switch to a new OS till I am ready to do so.
