    If you mean from the windows 10 installation, then no. I haven't gotten farther than the windows splash screen with any windows 10 installation media thus far.

    Okay, so, development:

    The usb flashdrive worked exactly one times. I started installation, and then went to go eat. I came back to find the laptop turned off, and when i turned it on, i found nothing but a black screen on boot. I tried booting to the flash drive again, to the same issue as last time with all the other installation medias; black screen, no cursor, windows splash logo.

    Where did you get the iso you are using?
    How are you creating the flash drive? The simplest way I know of is to use Rufus.
    Create a UEFI/GPT bootable flash drive. See here: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...dows-10-a.html

    Don't set USB as the first boot device, leave that as your optical or hard drive. Instead use the Fn key that opens the boot menu.

    That's exactly what I just did. I used Rufus, and I used the boot menu, and I followed those exact instructions.

    Did you create a UEFI/GPT flash drive to install with?
    Is Secure Boot disabled in Setup?

    Could you try it again but don't do step 12 B

    B) When you are finished, click/tap on New, Apply (for full size of disk), and OK. (see screenshot above)
    Instead, once you delete all the partitions and you have a fully unallocated drive, don't click NEW, Apply, just click Next. The installer will create and format the needed partitions then start the install.

    See if that makes a difference.

    I would try it again if it would boot into the flash drive, but now i'm stuck back at square one. There is no secure boot option in the bios.

    What happened to the previous OS that was on it? Is the hardware sound? Maybe it has bad RAM or a defective hard drive? If you have the very same model laptop, test your thumb drive on it. You can boot from it and not hurt anything. You just quit the install before you do anything. If the thumb drive gets to the Windows setup menu then you know its not the thumb drive, its something messed up on the other laptop.

    See if there are any issues reported by the Windows 8 compatibility assistant

    Check the requirements against your system: Windows 10 Specifications - Microsoft
    Client Hyper-V requires a 64-bit system with second level address translation (SLAT) capabilities and additional 2 GB of RAM (Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise only).
    • To install a 64-bit OS on a 64-bit PC, your processor needs to support CMPXCHG16b, PrefetchW, and LAHF/SAHF.
    You can ignore the Windows 8 sell at the end of the test.

    If the machine passes the Win8 Compat test and meets the requirements, you might try this:
    Some members got past that point by cold starting the machine at the 'stuck' point of the install.
    Press and hold the power button until the machine shuts down,
    wait a minute or two and
    then restart the machine in Normal mode.
