    However... I can't seem to boot to my USB drive where I have burned the .iso file (using Rufus). I still get that endless cursor blink loop. And that's the problem.
    You probably used the wrong options in Rufus.

    From what I can see in the Users manual you have a BIOS system, not UEFI so Rufus should be set for MBR / BIOS (or UEFI/CSM). No mention of EFI in the manual anywhere.

    Here is a manual (non-Rufus) procedure originally posted by @NavyLCDR that I recorded and saved (with slight modifications). I've used it many times now and it works under all boot conditions, UEFI/GPT/MBR or BIOS/MBR.

    1. Use the Media Creation Tool to download and save the ISO file to your hard drive.
    2. Insert the USB flash drive.
    3. Open a Administrator Command Prompt. It will say Administrator Command Prompt in the Title bar. Enter the following commands:
    4. diskpart
    5. list disk
    6. select disk # <- replace # with the actual disk number of the USB flash drive
    7. clean <- this will erase the disk selected above, make sure you selected the USB flash drive!
    7a. If the flash drive shows as GPT then you need to convert it to MBR: convert mbr
    8. create part pri
    8a. sel part 1
    9. format fs=fat32 quick
    9a. assign
    10. active
    11. exit
    12. exit - and if the first Command Prompt was not an Administrator Command Prompt, exit that one too.
    13. Mount the ISO you downloaded. If you are using Windows 8 or 10, you only have to right click on it and click on mount. If you are using Windows 7, then you must use a program like WinCDEmu to mount the ISO file:

    14. Copy all the files and folders from the mounted ISO file to the USB flash drive.

    That's it. Boot and install.

    I use the MCT choice of creating the Bootable USB drive, either the choice of both on the same drive or the 32-bit and 64-bit choice on their own drive. Using the both choice may require at least 8GB or preferably 16GB drives. The both choice for .iso requires creating a DVD+R/DL [Dual layer] disc. Creating the Bootable USB drive takes about the same total time as the download of the .iso and burning the disc. Burning the .iso file directly to the disc is good for storage.

    ayy.. it actually booted to the USB. I can now install the Windows 10 from USB boot menu now instead of relaying on GUI Windows installer. Thanks for it. Now I could bypass NX/Checking your PC by picking Windows 10 anniversary update x32 and boot on USB installer by the instructions you mentioned. Thanks a loooot again !

    Here's how I fixed it in case someone else is having similar issues -

    1. Seems like my old notebook laptop didn't liked latest Windows 10, so I picked up Windows 10 Anniversary Update iso file and it was supported with my PC and bypassed the NX/Checking your PC page.

    2. The issue of endless cursor blink loop when booting on USB drive was fixed by following @Ztruker instruction. Now I could boot onto USB.

    3. Now I could install the OS. I'll actually will try installing the OS later this day, so i'll let here know if it was successful or not.
