And decided to clean install but this time 64 bit, and English language and via Media Creation Tool, I created bootable USB (didn't work) then bootable DVD (still didn't work). By the way I checked that my processor is 64 bit compatible but I doubt about UEFI, probably my MB NOT compatible with UEFI.
    After booting from created media (I have tried both), blue windows appears on black background but NO rounding dots;
    the leds (on the USB's/DVD recorder's) were blimping, after 7-8 seconds everything stops, all leds going black, NO error messages, nothing. Everything stops forever and nothing works (even ctrl+alt+delete). I have tried several times. Then I have read an article and delete windows.old, windows.bt and windows.ws folders from my C dir, nothing changed, still same. I'm desparately looking for help. The only related message is yours dear "DoItJust". and I hope you already have solved this problem and help me. Thanks in advance and sorry for my english.
    Sorry, I didn't solve it. No way to install 64 bit Win10, and 32 bit misbehaved really bad (whea_uncorrectable error).
    I'm running 64 bit Win7 and have blocket MS attempts to upgrade to Win10.

    Sorry to hear that I was hopeful that you already solved it. I will keep searching and if I found a solution I will let you know too.

    Yes friend, but the latest bios version dated 2006

    But I can select the device boot from, there is no problem. The problem is after start of reading setup.exe or bootmgr. Nearly 1-2 min of reading from boot medya (I have tried both USB and DVD) everything goes unresponsive.

    Did anyone solve this problem of clean installing a 64 bit version of Windows on old hardware?

    I have Windows 10 FCU 32 bit working on a Socket 939 motherboard. My CPU meets the Windows 10 64 bit requirements provided I do a clean install. However, I'm stuck as others on this thread have noted:

    1. My PC doesn't support booting from USB sticks. I tried the Plop boot manager to boot from a USB stick but that didn't work.
    2. I created a boot DVD via the Media Creation Tool which just stops with a Window logo. The DVD is fine since I can boot it on 2 other more recent PCs.
    3. Other DVDs e.g. a Reflect recovery DVD do boot fine in the old PC


    Why can't I boot from the DVD created by the Media Creation Tool on an old PC?

    Not sure it can help you or not,
    If you can boot and install Win10 32-Bit from USB drive,
    1. Delete/move all files and folder from Win10 32-Bit USB device (Not format)
    2. Try download Win10 64-Bit ISO file, extract by 7-zip,
    3. Copy all files and folders from Win10 64-Bit ISO to Win10 32-Bit USB device ,
    4. It should able to boot from this Win 10 64-Bit USB and install Win10 in legacy mode

    My old PC won't boot from any USB stick/drive being of 2004 vintage before USB drives were common.

    I worked around the problem by booting from the Windows 8 x64 DVD I bought in 2012, using the command prompt then running setup.exe in the sources folder on the Windows 10 x64 USB stick created by the Media Creation Tool.

    This procedure works and the setup program cleans the disk and proceeds with a clean install of Windows 10. However, the PC hangs with the blue Windows logo on a black background after the first reboot. I'm working on this and have some things to try having Googled the issue for the Asus A8N-SLI motherboard.
