    Your PC specs may not be up to the Standards that Windows 10 has. Your video card in particular.
    I don't agree. All that Windows 10 needs is a DX9.0c/WDDM 1.0 compliant video card, and that one is, and the rest of the specs are more than enough. Just my humble understanding though...

    I dowlnoaded "WindowsTechnicalPreview-x64-EN-GB" & "RUFUS-2.2" & waiting for the w10 full issue end of July to create the w10 USB.

    When I do this clean install will I loose my 5 Logical partitions?

    Please explain this:- "Secure Boot in your UEFI firmware" I do not have it, on start up I go to BIOS.

    First off, I note that your computer is self-built, which means we don't have anything to go on as to what is and isn't included in your system.

    1. Please give us the name and version of your BIOS.

    For instance, one of my laptops has Phoenix BIOS. Others have AMI BIOS. Both of these are legacy BIOS and not UEFI.

    My newer laptop has only F.34 for the BIOS Version. I know this computer is UEFI. Also, this desktop has UEFI BIOS. Neither have a named BIOS version.

    2. Windows 10 installs only on the partition you tell it to install on. Just be sure you point to the right partition! Although some have said Windows 10 took out other partitions, I haven't had this happen to me. I do disconnect any external hard drives I'm not willing to lose, just in case a "user error" occurs (I choose the wrong partition to install on).

    Once we know exactly which BIOS you have, then we can advise accordingly. At this point, I strongely suspect that I've been "instructing" you on UEFI BIOS but you have Legacy BIOS! Shame on me if that's the case!

    OK, this tells the tale now, Nick. You have Legacy BIOS and should be able to just burn your ISO to DVD. Insert the DVD into the drive and boot from it.

    I use the free burncdcc which can be found here: http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/dow...e-software.htm It's an older app, but I still find it the easiest ISO burning software to be had.

    How about my 8gb stick that I used for the failed w10 Beta, it is still there, what will happen if I use it?

    Why did it fail I wonder.

    You could probably use that stick, but I've always just used a DVD to install to a computer with Legacy BIOS.

    Who knows why it failed. It could be any number of things. When I have a failure, I always do a new download and start from scratch. That's my nature and it may not be necessary for you.

    Make a backup and try it . . . you've done it before.

    I could not do it on dvd but, used an iso to stick program.

    With the stick connected & the bios set for it to boot, it failed to boot.

    I d.clicked on "setup" in the stick & started the installation of w10 on my spare HD but, for 1.5hrs the dots keep turning on "19% complete" with no change or other information. Let's see if it ever completes!!! .....nick

    It could be that your ISO is corrupted and you need to re-download it?
