    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

    open powershell as administrator
    type diskpart press enter
    type list disk press enter
    locate your USB drive from list (you can choose by size)
    type sel disk (then number of drive from list for example sel disk 4 then press enter
    type clean then press enter
    type create part pri then press enter
    type sel part 1 then press enter
    type format fs=fat32 quick then press enter
    type assign then press enter
    type active then press enter
    type exit then press enter
    type exit then press enter

    Now mount your ISO file and copy all the files to your usb drive
    restart, and boot from USB drive.

    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.
