    create windows 10 update 1607 usb media


    Hi ,
    I've got an Hp laptop ( energy star , year 2014 ) which prevents booting from Usb stick cause of Secure boot feature when burn the windows 10_1607.iso with Rufus or Microsoft USB/DVD tool .
    If I used mediacreationtool.exe the created by Microsoft Usb flash drive is bootable probably HP recognise it as genuine and Secure boot doesn't prevent booting .
    the problem is using mediacreationtool and choosing to create media for another pc downloads previous version 1511 and not the last 1607
    if you chose Upgrade this PC the version is 1607 , which I did .
    How can I overcome this in order to create a USB flash drive with the last version 1607 ( OS build 14393 ) ?
    I 've used two different kind of 16 GB flash drives ,but the same result.
    I can't explain why BIOS doesn't prevent booting from a DVD created burning windows 10_1607.iso with ImgBurn ?
    ( Boot order : USB drive , DVD drive , OS hard drive )
    thanks in advance

    Not obvious but you need to redownload media creation tool each MCT download is version specific - so you need latest version for 1607.

    Hi , Cereberus
    sorry for my late response but I have a new problem
    First I downloaded from Microsoft , the new Mediacreationtool ,version 10.0.14393.0 ( 1607 ) and ran it but in some percentage stopped
    error code : 0x80070456 - 0xA0019
    googling this found no solution ( delete some hidden files $Windows.~BT , $Windows.~WS and disabling antivirus )
    Second try no luck . I 'll try again in a few days
    thanks
