    Before I saw your edit, I tried it with the 32GB partition, and got the logo screen as usual.

    I'll try your other suggestion next, Ztruker, but it might have to wait 'til morning.

    So that at least got you past the volume size error message, right?

    Ztruker: Yes, that got past the error message, thank you.

    As for your other suggestion, could you elaborate? Should I follow Option 4 steps 1 to 9, then format using File Explorer, then perform steps 11 to 13?

    I've just noticed in Disk Management, the area I've been trying to install Win 10 into is described as Free space not Unallocated. I decided to delete it in order to make it Unallocated, and get the message "This is an extended partition. The partition will become inaccessible if you delete it. Are you sure you want to delete this partition?"

    I don't know if this is at all meaningful or helpful, just thought I'd mention it. I think it must have been Unallocated before, as I've been in and out of Disk Management a lot and would have noticed the different colour.

    Free space is normally the unused space in an existing partition. I.e. the remaining unused space in that partition in which files can be written.

    Make sure you have posted a screenshot of your existing partitions, then when trying to specify where to install Windows, take a photo and post that if still confused.

    Windows 10 install stuck at logo screen-image1.jpg

    When I try to install Windows I never get past the Windows logo so I don't get to specify anything.

    Compare:
    windows - unable to merge primary partition with free space - Super User

    You presently have no available space.

    I don't know how you plan to sort out your boot arrangements with 3 O/S's..

    Ok, I deleted the "Free space" and now it's Unallocated, rebooted using the usb and I got a flashing underscore cursor for a few seconds then the plain logo as usual.

    I believe your PC is very old; Packard Bell never validated any of their builds beyond the early Creator's build.

    I suggest you give up trying to install unsupported Win 10 on a PC for which it appears incompatible.

    I was afraid that would be the conclusion. So I guess I'll be looking for a new motherboard and processor, or a whole new PC.

    Unless anyone else has any suggestions?

    Go into the BIOS setup and see if you can find something like "Execute disable bit". If you have it, make sure it is enabled. Be sure to save any changes. My XP computer has a pentium 4 processor and I get the same thing when I try to install Windows 10.
