    So you're discouraging one not to go the Floppy Disk way then, correct?

    Yeah, not even the "high capacity" 1.44meg floppies?!? I mean the old 720k floppies are so YESTERDAY!
    I remember beta testing Windows 95 and tying the phone line up for days getting each new build.

    Confirmed! And as far as trying to install Windows 10 on ye ol' Commodore 64, well, we'll just leave that as a closed case. Thanks for the replies!!!

    Boy, it seems just like 23 years ago since I saw these rigs. These for sure aren't the 5 1/4's that would get soft when someone cranked the heat up. I remember the days when temperatures would be between 90 & 100 degrees, then grandmother would launch towards the Boston Breeze, twist it up to 400 so she could make biscuits. When things peaked out (such as tempers) suddenly someone needed these huge floppies to reinstall Windows. As if things hadn't heated up enough by then.
    Ok, well seeing it would only take 2000 of these three & one half inch disks to install or reinstall Windows 10 & all the joys that are linked to it, maybe I just look for it on cd disk.

    Well if they remove all the tablet chit it may well go on a cd.

    To my knowledge, Windows 10 Pro doesn't come on the cd's.

    All well and good, but can we get back to topic?

    I cannot seem to get Windows 10 to load up. It gets as far as 11 to13% on the creating windows 10 media window, then freezes. The fans come up loud, as though it is under load, and it just sits there.
    My problem seems to be hardware related at this point, and I am lost as to how to continue. I can usually fix these things by process of elimination, but I am stumped. Memory? Video card?
    My system is ASUS Sabertooth MB, with AMD FX-9590 cpu, 32 gigs Gskil DDR3 ram, 1000 watt PSU (platinum certified), GTX770 EVGA graphics, and a few drives. The cpu is liquid cooled, and never gets above 45C, so that isn't over heating. Everything is new except the video card and the drives, and have worked flawlessly for the past few months, until now.
