  1. Thank you for bringing this to my attention! Probably saved me another panic attack.
  2. Can you explain to me why I would need to do this if the drive didn't work in either motherboard? One UEFI and one Non-UEFI. I have also installed windows 7 on the machine in question via usb twice in the past. Not sure what "EFI startup and GPT drive" are?
  3. It does. The second machine I tested it in does not.
  4. Greatly appreciated kind sir and or madam. Now I get to wait 3 - 4 days for it to download via my horrible internet connection. Thanks Microsoft!
  5. I have confirmed it is the usb drive. I attempted the install in another machine, and it had the same issue. Does anyone have a link to where I can download windows 10 pro 64bit iso? Like a legit link? I've been stumbling around the micro$oft site, but sh!ts confusing.
  6. I purchased it off of newegg:
  7. A pcie port. Second one down from the top of that board, underneath my gpu.
  8. It's using pcie. I have the 240gb version of this guy here.
  9. I bought the drive pre-loaded with windows 10, and don't have an iso to reformat it with. I suppose I could find one though. I may try putting the drive in another pc and seeing if I can get past that error. That would tell me it's something with my machine and not the drive.
  10. I'm afraid it doesn't get that far. I insert the windows 10 usb drive, power on the pc, go into my boot menu and select the drive, a screen appears and says copying files, then once it completes I receive the screenshot in my original post. For a brief moment (half a second or less) the windows 10 icon will display before showing that screenshot.
  11. I am attemtping to install windows 10 and I receive the following error message directly after "copying files" completes: File: \windows\System32\drivers\tcpip.sys The operating system couldn't be loaded because a critical system driver is missing or contains errors. My hardware is as follows (if more required please feel free to ask): > Asus sabertooth 990fx mobo > FX8350 CPU > XFX RX480 GPU > Kingston HyperX Predator m.2 pcie g2 x4 solid state drive 240GB I am attempting to install via a usb drive which I purchased and payed almost $200 for specifically to avoid problems like this...lot of good that did. Before install I used dban to wipe windows 7 from the drive to prevent any conflicts. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not sure how to proceed at this point.
