    Win 10 USB Install Failing


    Before I start, I just want to say that I've looked everywhere that I could to find the answer, but I can't find anything.

    Hi! My name is Noah, and I upgraded to Windows 10 earlier this year. I haven't been using my computer basically at all over the summer, and when I booted it up yesterday, the system was running very slowly. I tried to reset, but I didn't have enough space, and something seems to be eating up my hard drive. I couldn't figure out what it was, so I decided just to reinstall Windows 10 via USB. However, my computer uses UEFI, and I have no idea how to use UEFI. I looked up how to create a UEFI compatible USB disk, and after hours, I finally had my disk ready. It is a FAT32 disk with all of the files in the .ISO file. I formated the disk on a Mac, if that's of any help. When I tried to boot the USB, I get error code 0xc000000e. I am sure I downloaded the 32-bit ISO image (which is the only one compatible with my computer) and I don't know what to do. Please help! I have attached a image (which, unfortunately is quite bad quality) of my computer screen with the error.
    Thanks,
    Noah

    type create part pri then press enter
    type sel part 1 then press enter
    type format fs=fat32 quick then press enter

    Ok, so I was trying to turn on the computer, and it said it has run into the error DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FALIURE. It first showed the boot screen and said "Starting Automatic Repair" now it says "Diagnosing your PC"

    Ok, so I had the same problem again, and I believe that the problem was that in my UEFI settings had USB boot at a higher priority than Windows Boot Manager. It's now booting again, it's normal for my computer to take a while to boot.

    Nope, same problem again. I found an article (Fix Windows 10 Error: Driver Power State Failure) that should help me fix the problem.
