    what do you mean create it. It is an iso file. You can download it on any machine.

    it is a bit big to burn to dvd , so extract the contents of the iso file to a fat32 formatted usb stick.

    OK - so I will d.l. to the win7 machine and extract it to my formatted usb. (Cruzer Glide 3.0 32 GB) and then install from there onto the Dell. If it works, I will be very happy. Thank you so much for your help.

    it is the recovery media so it repartition the disk and put it back to factory state.

    if you have anything on the disk you want, better copy it off somewhere first.

    Absolutely do not know what I am doing. OK I will give it a try. Thanks again. I selected the usb stick but nothing came up like your picture. So I copied the file over to the usb - is that the ISO?

    cant understand what you mean.

    click the button to select the iso file.

    then when you click copy iso to usb it formats the stick to fat32 and then extracts the contents of the iso file to the usb.

    To all my win10 helpers, I do appreciate all of your efforts but can't seem to get this little ol' problem fixed.

    I downloaded the first link you gave me to my chromebook - it took about 12 minutes but I did get it. I then copied it off the chrome to my usb. Should I extract it on the usb? Forgive me if you have told me this but other parts of my life are also going on. Thanks again.

    how are you planning to extract it?

    It could be done with 7-zip but I dont know anything about chromebooks.

    Linuxy things will often mount an iso by dble clicking on it.

    you will have to ask somebody who knows how to do it on that kind of machine.

    possibly could use ventoy.

    apparently can be done by following these instructions

    Without trawling eberything above, I can tell what the first link was - please be specific - was it the program that SIW2 recommended (USB7ICE.zip) or a W10 ISO?

    So I guess it was the ISO.

    Having downloaded the ISO, you next have to 'copy' it to the USB, making it bootable in the process. That is what USB7ICE does (step 3 in post 33 above). But that is not a straight-forward normal 'copy'. USB7ICE runs under Windows, so you would need a working Windows PC. In your position, you should be using the media creation tool from the Chromebook, as per the link SIW provided.

    Once again - thank you very much for all of your input. I do believe I copied the first link to my usb while on the win7 desktop. I do not believe it worked but I will go back and try it again. If all else fails said she laughingly, I will take it to the guy and give him 80 bucks to fix it. My concern is the bsods I keep getting on that machine. I go through all the steps to fix and then it happens again -- and again -- and again. I guess that's what eventually killed it. OK - I'll post later after new attempts to deal with it. Thanks again.
