Unable To Create Installation Media From All 3 Of PCs

Aug 17, 2015

This worked for me a few weeks back. Today I am looking to try to reload Windows 10 on one of my desktop PC's that has just never been right after upgrade from Windows 7. I figured, trying a clean install is in order. The trouble is, as of today, the MediaCreationTool is not working for me. I get the same error on all 3 of my Windows 10 computers: "Setup couldn't start properly. Please restart your PC and try again." I can say that the mediacreationtool worked splendidly a few weeks back, but I have already repurposed that jump drive so the media is no longer in tact.

Specifically, the tools on this page are not working for me: [URL] ...

My PC's have always been real smooth, but now all three are just not quite 'right'. Mouse disappearing hear and there while I am dragging it. Pauses before I can type, etc. Just weird random anomalies that are far from normal.

Installation :: Unable To Create Install From Media Creation Tool On Win7

Nov 15, 2015

I am currently running Win7 Ultimate service pack 1 and am trying to create an installation of Win10 on a flash drive before I replace some parts inside my PC that will require an OS refresh. Unfortunately I am stuck at this screen.

I am sure my OS version is activated and I have extracted my windows key via Magical Jelly Bean finder but it rejected that key.

P.S. any PC stats linked to this account are a different piece of hardware

Installation :: How To Create Recovery Media

Jul 31, 2015

I originally purchased Windows 8 and upgraded to 8.1. I installed the Windows 10 upgrade via the downloadable Windows 10 Installation Tool and burning the ISO to a DVD. I understand that this will work to upgrade my system should I need to recover but will this still work after the 1 year free upgrade period? Also, how to confirm if the ISO downloaded via the Installation Tool will work as a repair disk to recover using a system image? If that's the case I would be content with that, as it's how I've always done backups since Windows 7.

Question #2..this USB drive was formatted in Windows 7 initially,do I need to reformat it now in Windows 10?
Question #3...Why the heck am I doing this on a relaxing Sunday afternoon??..??

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 :: Unable To Create RecoveryDrive?

Oct 22, 2015

I did the free upgrade offer to Windows 10 from a Windows 7 Ultimate Dell T7500 with an Xenon motherboard. I am unable to create the "RecoveryDrive" USB from the utility: recoverdrive.exe.

I have google searched for solutions with no "direct" solution. I have upgraded 8 other windows 7 PC's to Windows 10. About half will NOT create the recovery drive. What is the recoverydrive.exe looking for, in order to declare a failure?

Finally, I find on this forum steps to download the windows 10 ISO, using that ISO to build a bootable USB. You are directed to have a Windows key. QUESTION: can this key be the one I have with the Dell Windows 7, to be used with a Windows 10 ISO?

No Option To Create ISO Image From Computer With W8.1 Pro (Media Creation Tool)

Mar 5, 2016

I currently have Windows 8.1 Pro installed on my laptop and in the process of doing a clean install of Windows 10 Pro. Unfortunately the Media Creation Tool used for creating a Windows 10 ISO doesn't provide me with the option to choose the Pro version of W10 the only two options being Windows 10 and Windows 10 (N).

From browsing about I've learned that the Media Creation Tool is supposed to detect what Windows version you have installed and give the proper options, but I've double checked and my computer does indeed have W8.1 Pro installed on it. What I must do to install the Pro version of W10?

BSOD :: Unable To Create A Log

Mar 5, 2016

I tried rebooting, and no go. It didn't identify the right hard disk.So I repaired the boot with macrium reflect recovery disk.I booted to windows, and after five minutes, I get a BSOD complaining of the failure of a critical file. It was unable to create a log.I restored my system from a macrium reflect system image, and so far so good. normally I would blame it on the electricity flickering on and off, but my pc is powered through a UPS, so a flaky electricity supply shouldn't be an issue.

Unable To Upgrade Through Media Creation Toolx64

Jul 29, 2015

As the windows update route isn't working on my two Windows 7 PC's and my Windows 8.1 tablet i tried out the mediacreationtoolx64 file from microsoft with which you should be able to upgrade to windows 10.

However the stupid developers from microsoft has decided that if you live in denmark you MUST want to install a danish version of windows 10, regardless of the language you're using in your current windows.. A side effect to this is that you cannot upgrade and keep your settings and apps due to the language difference... Such a nice move from microsoft!

I tried changing my location settings in control panel but this hasn't worked. How i can get it to install an english version of windows 10 instead of a danish one?

Unable To Create Or Save Files In Documents And Pictures Folders

Jul 29, 2015

As with many I have upgraded to Windows 10 today and it is going well except for the fact I am unable to save any files or create new ones in the Documents and Pictures folders or any sub-folders within these folders. For instance, I tried to save an image created in paint and attempted to save it in the Pictures folder, it gave me the error message seen in this picture below:

Note, I am the only user on the system, and also the admin account so I do not know why it says this. Clicking Yes on the box does nothing and the same thing still occurs afterward. In addition, bringing up the right click menu and going to new only allows me to create a new folder, and the windows admin shield icon appears next to it. Deleting files also prompts me to ask for admin permission but in that case I can simply click the continue button and it goes through.

Drivers/Hardware :: Unable To Create / Combine Partition From Unallocated Space

Jan 27, 2016

I just assembled a new PC. It has a single 4TB hard drive. During Windows 10 installation, I created a 200gb partition to install to as the C: drive. It auto partitioned my drive into a 500MB system reserved partition, my C: drive, and two unallocated spaces of 1852.69GB and 1678.02GB respectively. The 1852GB space I can create a partition on, but the 1678GB space I cannot do anything with: Cannot create a partition, and cannot combine it with the rest of the unallocated space.

I would like to combine the two unallocated spaces to create a single partition from the remaining unallocated spaces, but cannot figure out how. I contacted Microsoft tech support via chat, allowed them to remote in to my machine, but they could not determine the issue either.

Installation :: Resetting Laptop Using Old Media Installation Files

Jan 4, 2016

i'm having an issue with my laptop, i think it's something called a memory leak because my RAM won't go below 80% even when my laptop is idle. I've been searching the internet for answers on how to fix this problem but didn't find any luck. I've already wasted an entire day trying to figure out how to fix this, I even tried to do a system restore but i forgot to save any restore points. I'm hoping Resetting/Refreshing would be the answer but i'm facing another problem; My media installation tool or USB Bootable Drive (I don't know if they're the same. It's what i used when i installed Windows 10) is that of a previous Windows 10 version & build. Would it work If i use it to Reset my laptop? I'm currently using the latest version, build 10586.36.

Installation :: Create Skipable Product Key Installation ISO?

Nov 6, 2015

Im not trying to do anything illegal or anything but i want to create a skipable installation iso. Ive been able to successfully do this with windows 8/8.1. The reason for me to do this is I work at a computer repair shop and we do a lot of installs. To keep up a fast pace i find it easier to skip the product key initially and activate it later. I cant seem to find the ei.efg file to edit. Perhaps they changed the format of the install.

How To Get Installation Media

Dec 9, 2015

Got a new DELL that comes with windows 7 Pro. and I upgraded to windows 10 Pro with no issues. Later I found out that I "should " have Upgraded using the "Windows 10 Media Creation Tool" instead of "Get Upgrade". How can I get the installation Media now with the Iso image, so that I can make a copy onto a DVD, so that I can do a clean installation in the future.?Is it that the "product key" or digital entitlement ONLY works for this Dell machine alone and NOT transferable?
