    Error Message When Installing Windows Pro 10 64

    Received my notice today that I could download Win Pro 10 64. Tried 4 times and each time I get this message: "You can't install Windows on a USB flash drive using Setup." I'm not trying to do that. I'm trying to install it on my desktop computer. How do I work around this USB thing?

    BTW, my computer has been validated, I just keep running into this USB error. I presently have Windows Pro 8.1.

    Glad that worked for you - now you just have to join the queue for the Threshold 2 update and its patch, as the newer updaters to Win 10 are now having to wait until the 30 day deadline has passed before they get those through Windows Updates and they can have their own install problems - but best of luck

    You can use the Thread Tools dropdown to Mark Thread as Solved.
