Windows is not able to install

Hey,

So i followed every instruction i could find to install windows from a stick but nothing is working, everytime i start the pc it either wants to install again or if i force to boot from the ssd where actually windows is installed it says that nothing is installed, even on the ssd is around 10gb already used after installing windows but it is not able to boot in to windows

How  did you create your install media? Microsoft Media Creation tool or rufus?

 

Ensure in bios, secure boot is enabled and  csm is disabled?

Just a thought... it usually reboots at least a few times during the installation process. Did you let it do that? If so, it will eventually get to the Windows desktop. 

I've been using computers since around 1978, started learning programming in 1980 on Apple IIs, started learning about hardware in 1990, ran a BBS from 1990-95, built my first Windows PC around 2000, taught myself malware removal starting in 2005 (also learned on Bleeping Computer), learned web dev starting in 2017, and I think I can fill a thimble with all that knowledge. 😉 I'm not an expert, which is why I keep investigating the answers that others give to try and improve my knowledge, so feel free to double-check the advice I give.

When you boot from the USB stick does the Windows install process start as expected?

 

When you get to the screen that allows you to select the destination drive / partition are you deleting EVERYTHING from your intended destination drive? This should be drive 0. You may see see more drives if you have more than one installed so make sure you get the correct drive as you could easily wipe a data storage drive and loose files. A typical Windows installation normally creates a few different partitions that you will see on the existing boot SSD. I think they are labelled (EFI System Partition), (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Basic Data), (Recovery), (Recovery). You should highlight each partition individually and click the 'delete partition' button until there is nothing left.

 

You don't need to format, just click next / install.

 

When the first part of the install process is complete, make sure you remove the Windows install USB stick to ensure the PC doesn't try and boot from USB again and want to keep repeating the process. TBH, this normally isn't an issue as the BIOS boot priorities are changed but better safe than sorry. You'll see a progress bar giving you 60 or seconds to remove the install media before the system automatically reboots.

 

If all goes as planned, your next boot should start the 2nd part of the install process. 

 

As @C2dan88 mentioned, Ensure secure boot is enabled and CSM is disabled in BIOS.

I have written the bypass of tpm, ram and secure boot but still it installs windows but doesn't let me into windows

That's just odd.

 

How many hard drives / ssd's do you have installed on the PC?

 

Sorry if I'm gonna suggest something crazy but have you some how installed the windows install media to a fixed hard disk and not the USB drive?

 

Kinda clutching at straws with this one but its the only thing I can think of for wanting to go through the install process after every boot even without the usb drive plugged in.

Do you, by chance, have Intel's rapid storage technology turned on in BIOS? If so, try disabling it.
