sure :) 

 

open Media Creation Tool and choose "Create Installation Media", then choose to save it as an "ISO file", put it on the desktop or where ever you'd like

 

then download RUFUS 3.4 from here https://rufus.ie/

Plug in your USB and open Rufus, and then click the "SELECT" button on the top right, and choose the ISO file that you just downloaded.

 

after you choose the ISO, double check that the Partition Scheme is "GPT" and the Target System is "UEFI (non-CSM)"

 

click start and wait for it, and that's it.

So I used Partition Tool to transfer my OS that was on my HDD to my SSD and now the SSD no longer says it has 1TB free. Plus I tried to perform a clean install of windows on my SSD and it wont work. I get this e7a7f41c6f7f99bab64cfeb4c2d6270a.png

So it reports the same size as your old HDD? You'll need to resize the partition using a third party tool

are you trying to do a clean install inside of windows? that doesn't work like that

 

you first need to put Windows 10 on a USB and boot from it

That is what I am trying to do. The Media Creation Tool is not working and giving me an error message.

does it give you an error when you open it? or when it starts creating the USB?

Only after downloading Windows 10. I searched the error code that appears but have had no success.

then download the ISO from Media Creation tool instead, and use RUFUS to put Windows on the USB
