    Nothing to worry about. It just says secure boot will be disabled, as we suggested, and this could improve compatibility.

    Another thing to try is boot from a Windows 7 DVD and when you see the Setup now screen press SHIFT+F10 to get a command prompt. From there you can use diskpart to wipe the disk, create a new NTFS partition, make it bootable and then use imagex to extract Windows 10 setup files from install.wim to the hard disk. After that you can reset the computer and attempt to boot from the hard disk. Setup should resume and proceed to install Windows 10. I have used this method for some old computers that would not boot from the DVD-ROM or USB to install Windows normally.

    If you cannot boot in Windows 7 either, you can connect your disk in another computer and prepare it there. When you have extracted the Windows 10 Setup files to the disk, you can then connect it again to your computer and resume installation.

    The above method is part of how to install Windows 8 on a Pentium 4 bypassing NX/PAE checks. You can just ignore the patching part and use the method to extract Windows 10 files on the hard disk, then boot from the hard disk to resume setup. Use ISO from Microsoft Tech Bench.

    Version selection warning: In imagex setting the parameter in 1 will install Windows 10 Pro. Set it to 2 to install Windows 10 Home.
