Windows 10: reinstalling windows ten from my MAC

    reinstalling windows ten from my MAC

    I upgraded to Windows 10 (Lenovo T410 Win 8) when prompted by microsoft. The upgrade seem successful but Initially the system ran very very slow and then finally BSOD error code #OxOOOO225. I tried starting in safe mode, restarting, restarting again but after forever it returns to BSOD. Now the problem. The only working computer I have is a MAC. Microsoft suggests I create a USB boot disk to reinstall Windows 10. I downloaded the ISO file on the MAC but can't find any info or tools on how to create the USB boot disk from the MAC. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the quick reply. I assume I need to also use the MS program that prepares the iso file as the primary startup program. If I copy it to a usb will the PC automatically look for it and run it?

    You would need to boot into your boot options and in your boot options select the USB.

    I transferred iso file to a USB and changed the boot order to the USB HDD and when it started the USB flashed on for just a second then never again and the screen went from the Lenovo Thinkpad logo to black with message "A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

    In the Bios setup I ran the HDD test and Diag passed but the rest failed. Seems like I need a new hard drive?

    Yes, you need to replace your hard drive.
    I hope you have a backup of your stuff?

    No I don't but thank you so very much for all your help. Any chance I or some service can get my stuff off the broken hard drive?

    You could try an HDD docking station to recover the data

    The first thing to do is make sure you have the tools required to connect this drive to another computer safely. Ideally, some kind of SATA/IDE to USB cable or USB drive enclosure or sled that you can mount the drive into and connect it to your computer easily.
    Next, take a look at the drive itself. Is it damaged in any way? Are the pins bent or broken? Make sure that the drive is in good enough condition to actually use before you try anything in the first place that may damage it even further. If the drive is too physically damaged to attempt recovery, you need professional assistance. If everything looks good and you have the equipment required to connect the drive to your system, you can try to recover the data.

    It is important to know if the pins are in good condition, if they aren't a docking station won't help because then the drive can't connect
