    Just a thought, do you have an old PS2 mouse and keyboard lying around? May be the wireless mouse and keyboard is breaking the install. Unplug your printer and any other extras and try with a wired basic mouse and keyboard.
    I used a PS2 keyboard on my Media PC and it didn't make any difference. My wireless Logitech keyboards work just like wired USB keyboards even without installing drivers. I can access the BIOS using them with no issues. As far as the motherboard is concerned they work like a wired USB keyboard. I'm going to go hunt up a blank DVD and burn an install disk and try that.

    DVD appears to work. I can boot from it and I went as far as language selection screen. My back is sore so I'll put the full install off for now. I may not tackle it till tomorrow some time. It's still a mystery to me why the thumb drives don't work though? I may try on more time and make one manually with diskpart.

    Installed fine from the DVD, took a long long time though. Painfully slow. It may have been a wasted effort though, no sound. No working driver for my VIA onboard audio either. Windows doesn't even see the onboard sound so it won't look for a driver. It's MIA in device manager. It was the same deal in Windows 8.1 but I had a driver I could install manually that worked. This driver won't work in Windows 10. v10_1200a for VIA VT1708S. When I run it ,it reports no HD device found. The VIA site is hateful for actually trying to find a download.

    Glad you are at least getting somewhere. Onboard sound issues, I expect VIA or Windows Update will have a fix for that soon as it is a popular sound system.
