    Urgent help PC wont boot from usb FAT32


    Ok this is the run down;

    I have two PCs, both Motherboards are ASUS. I have successfully installed OS10 on PC2 but having troubles with PC1.

    I have got a USB FAT32 and installed that Windows creation tool for windows 10 64 bit PRO.

    I then switched off my PC inserted my new SSD EVO samsung drive and turned it back on and it booted to that windows screen quickly and i've installed windows 10 no problem on PC2.

    Now onto PC1, i plugged in my USB and switched off my PC and hooked up my other new samsung SSD 1TB and switched on my PC except it didn't boot to that windows install like on PC2. So i went into BIOS and done a boot priority BOOT 1 - Sand disk 20gb USB. But the window install still doesn't boot up? I get an error saying no hard drive inserted (can't remember the exact wording but i can get a screenshot next time)

    Anyone provide some help please. I'm not very tech minded and don't wont to bust anything lol

    Sounds like it never looked at the USB and went straight to the SSD. Make sure that you actually saved the boot priority when you exited BIOS.

    Got it working. I just installed a new copy of that media creation.

    Ok now i have it working.

    When I restarted my PC its now not picking up my new SSD?

    Its not listed in BOOT priority either?

    This is very complicated I can’t explain what is happening.

    I have my SSD and another drive HDD i’m not sure if I installed Windows on my SSD? Because if I disconnect my HDD windows boots straight to BIOS??

    Why is it doing this? Also my SSD in bios isn’t showing up in priority boot
