    Can't boot x64 Win10 setup from USB or DVD


    Trying to do a clean install booting from DVD or USB created w Media Creation Tool:

    Windows 7 x86 and x64 boots from DVD or USB
    Windows 10 x86, boots from DVD or USB.


    Windows 10 x64, from DVD loads the blue window and then nothing more. Have to switch off/on to get out of it. From USB - nothing, just blank, some HD activity and then nothing, ctrl/Alt/Del restarts

    Hello DoItJust,

    If you haven't already, you might see if you may be able to boot to advanced startup from within Windows 10, select the Use a device option, and select your connected DVD or USB to boot from.

    Thank you, will try as soon as I get to my rigg. However, still curious why I can't boot the way it's always been before. Will post back.

    One possibility is if you have "Fast Boot" enabled in your UEFI firmware, it'll prevent you from being able to normally access the boot menu at startup.

    I have an old system, BIOS is from 2004, thus no UEFI ...

    Just looked at the Advanced Startup Options; "Use a device" and "Use another operating system" are not listed.
    I guess the "Use a device" requires a modern UEFI enabled board and "Use another operating system" requires a dual boot system

    Why does it boot from a 32-bit disk but not from a 64-bit?
    Win7 boots both

    Just to verify, did you create a Legacy BIOS Windows 10 USB, and not a UEFI USB?

    I used the Media Creation Tool from MS to create both the x86 and x64 installation disks/USBs. In none of the four cases I've been given the option to select legacy/UEFI. Just create ISO or create USB.
    Thanks for trying to help!

    Silly question, but do you have a 64-bit system?

    If you haven't already, you might see if downloading an ISO using OPTION ONE below first, then create a USB may help.

    Yes I have a 64-bit system, as stated earlier, Win7 x64 boots perfectly well. As did XP x64
    I have also already tried the rufus tool on a 64-bit ISO image. The resulting USB stick works (not) exactly as a USB stick created with MS MCT

    Hello friends,
    I have exactly same problem with "DoItJust". I have succesfully upgraded from 32bit win7pro and activated. My custom computer is also old, from 2005. After upgraded, my computer got too slow. And decided to clean install but this time 64 bit, and English language and via Media Creation Tool, I created bootable USB (didn't work) then bootable DVD (still didn't work). By the way I checked that my processor is 64 bit compatible but I doubt about UEFI, probably my MB NOT compatible with UEFI.
    After booting from created media (I have tried both), blue windows appears on black background but NO rounding dots;
    the leds (on the USB's/DVD recorder's) were blimping, after 7-8 seconds everything stops, all leds going black, NO error messages, nothing. Everything stops forever and nothing works (even ctrl+alt+delete). I have tried several times. Then I have read an article and delete windows.old, windows.bt and windows.ws folders from my C dir, nothing changed, still same. I'm desparately looking for help. The only related message is yours dear "DoItJust". and I hope you already have solved this problem and help me. Thanks in advance and sorry for my english.
