    In my opinion, the main thing is to move away from DVD and use a USB flash drive. Even a USB 2.0 flash drive is faster than a DVD.

    And you can clean and reuse many times. CD / DVD is dead technology.

    And you can reuse many times as a Windows installation USB for newer Windows versions.

    Once the installation USB has been made & tested, you can 'mount' a newer ISO by double-clicking on it within File explorer then drag the contents of the virtual drive that is created onto the USB. I almost always delete the existing USB contents before I do this - the key thing is not to reformat it.***

    Completely wrong. Reformatting it will have no affect whatsoever on it - if it was originally created the standard Microsoft way with MBR partitioning and a single FAT32 partition marked as active. Just do a quick format on the partition, then copy the files and folders over from the mounted ISO file.

    If you used some completely unnecessary third party program to create thre USB flash drive, then it might not be that easy.

    @Megahertz & Samuria

    Despite a "good" DVD branding, problems still appear. I will explain what happens.

    motherboard
    power supply
    DVD writer
    graphics Card

    These are the only components that I use to get Windows 10 installed on the computer.

    The Windows 10 startup screen is slow, but I can enter various settings, that is not the problem that comes after.

    After all the usual settings, I am confronted with a screen that asks for software> ????????????????????????

    I placed the original CDs from the motherboard in the writer, and performed a scan, "NOTHING"

    I placed my second CD in the writer of the Grasfichkaart, "NOTHING"

    I put all the CDs that I have in my possession in the writer, absolutely nothing comes further in the installation process of Windows 10.

    While trying to install Windows 10 clean installation, I come across another problem which I think has to do with "SMART" in the BIOS I think ???

    As I stated "I think this is" this is the problem, given that I see a total hard disk before the installation has to start.

    See picture

    If this is the case, what do I have to do to get this done, and how do I do that?

    So I guess you ignored going the USB route as suggested by many?

    Anyway....

    That is fine, but what is the problem with using 3rd party software if source is trustful????
    It makes the simple complicated. It's easy for the experienced to say it's easy but for the novice it could be daunting. Microsoft has made creating the USB boot media drama free. Why complicate it?

    I do not ignore anything that is written about USB, but then the stores must be open and they are not even a neighborhood where I live because I can buy.

    In the beginning I already indicated that I first have to process everything in my memory, which is described as well as performing steps. And given my age, that seems to be the toughest to write an entire discussion about a USB stick

    @sygnus21

    The discussion about the USB kept going, I will not respond once the entire discussion has ended. This way you prevent even more discussion about a subject that has different paths.

    In the meantime, I start reading such as searching for which option might be the best to use or purchase. I don't blame you, and I'm happy that help is being given which I already appreciate.

    If you wish to boot from a USB flash drive in a UEFI system, it must be formatted as FAT32.

    The largest drive that Windows will format as FAT32 is 32 GB. Windows can use a much larger FAT32 drive, though.

    I'm not competent to tell you the best way to use the drive. There are free third party utilities that can format it, though. That may be the simplest way to go.

    I have no idea what the market is like where you are. In the USA, 8GB flash drives are inexpensive. (Example: a pack of five for $18, or les than 16.) There's little point in buying a larger drive if its sole purpose is Windows installation/repair.
