    How long have you waited? It can take an hour or more sometimes with updates.

    No such thing as Home Pro.

    What are you trying to install ?

    How are you trying to install it ?

    Are you doing a clean install ?

    Where did you get the Iso file ?

    I am using the one at the top of the list that comes up to choose from. Using Windows Media Creat tool and a usb.

    I am choosing format disk for my SSD then installing to that.

    You are trying to install the October Update, 1809 ????

    During the 1st reboot, are you removing the usb stick ?

    You did not change it to boot from the usb stick in the Bios did you ?

    Just use the one time boot menu key (usually F8) to bring up the boot menu and choose the usb stick 1 time. (the screen will show you which key to push to bring up the boot menu)

    I would try again and this time don`t let it do any updates, unplug the ethernet cable if you have to, but just see if you can get it to reboot properly.

    Hi, your PC has drivers available for Vista 32 bits and Win 7 64 bits.
    That means there's no guarantee of Win 10 compatibility.

    - does not show your PC. (Which does not mean you might not be lucky).

    The only other possibilities I can think of:
    - check your BIOS is up to date
    - try an earlier build of Win 10 (each build can come with different drivers)
    - stay with Win 7

    (Sorry, my post above mentioning Pro was wrong- Win 7 Premium -> Win 10 Home as you said).

    I have been trouble free on Windows 10 since it was first downloadable.

    That does not mean that if you were to upgrade to another build you won't experience problems. I've seen that happen.

    So.. are you installing the SAME build that worked previously, AND without accepting updates during the procedure?

    Have you done a clean install before, and are you doing that correctly? (There's a tutorial if needed).

    Right now, as of the last day, you would get build 1809. It's possible you would have got build 1809 for a couple of days about 5 weeks ago.

    Before that it was 1803 from April/May this year.
    Before that, 1709.

    Bear in mind too that MS may have changed its driver database.

    If you wish to get a specific build, you can.

    If you examine this tutorial (now updated for 1809) you will find clues that may help you identify the build on your bootable disk.

    Please use Kyhi's boot disk to boot your PC and
    a. get a screenshot of the partitions on your disk using Minitool Partition Wizard (on that disk).
    b. run a check on your disk - post the outcome of a surface scan using HD Tune (on that disk).
    c. examine the properties, details tab of a typical file e.g. explorer.exe on your system disk where you will find the build number.

    Have a look at this:
    Clean Install Windows 10 | Tutorials
    and make sure you have followed this appropriately, including deleting all Windows partitions as part of the procedure.
