    Can not delete windows 10 iso off of USB


    I am trying to download windows 10 ISO to install to my new computer when I build it since it does not have a optical drive. (I bought the windows 10 CD) I started downloading and when it was "verifying" the download it was stuck at 51% for 2 hours. I just when to task manager and closed the download so I could restart it. But when I try to delete the windows 10 files off the hard drive it the window for the hard drive closes and when I re open it everything is still there. help?

    Welcome to the forums arknausrip!

    Have you tried formatting the USB?

    windows 10 professional version 1607 build 14393.969 64 bit

    Do you currently have a working operating system?
    If so open administrative command prompt and run these commands:
    1) winver (there should be a pop up, view the windows version and build and post into the forum)
    2) sfc /scannow (it should take less than 10 minutes to run, post the results into the forum
    3) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth (it should take less than 10 minutes to run, post the results into the forum)

    Do you want to perform
    1) an upgrade of the operating system?
    2) a clean install of the operating system (deleting partitions, formatting the dirve, making an unallocated drive) and then reinstalling the operating system)?
    3) install an operating system on a drive that has never had an operating system?

    On a working computer have you created a bootable windows 10 iso from this web site:

    Download Windows 10

    If so check the bootable windows 10 iso on another computer to confirm that it is bootable and working properly.
