    created USB flash drive from W media creator, but can't boot from it


    created USB flash drive from W media creator, but can't boot from it

    maybe I misunderstood the purpose / function of a bootable windows 10 USB pen....created one by using windows media creator, but although I can boot from it....it only offers INStALL or repair options, had hoped I could fully boot into windows 10 from this pen. so suspect that is not the case.....

    thanks

    that is windows 10 setup media
    not windows to go media..

    so you can only install windows from that media - not run windows

    thank you that is clear now....it's the 2go USB pen an official MS provision or a home brew arrangement ...
    also are the repair facilities in the setup media better than in previous windows incarnations ? I see you can also go back to a previous restore point, could be handy also
    thanks
